“World's Most Powerful Jaguar F-Type” Launched

By Paul Joseph

Bespoke vehicle tuning and automotive design company VIP Design London has created what is billed as the most powerful Jaguar F-Type in the world.

Called the VIP Design Project Predator, the car delivers a blisteringly quick 650bhp and a top speed of more than 200mph. The dyno tested and proven upgrade package is delivered through a number of mechanical and software upgrades working in unison.

The car’s engine features high-flow air filters that achieve increased combustion and throttle, while an uprated supercharger pulley brings the software upgrade to life. Increasing supercharger boost pressures matched to the enhanced fuelling of the software delivers dramatic reductions in 0-60 times and power delivery across the whole rev range.

VIP Design London managing director Paul Busby said: “Since the Jaguar F-Type was launched, the sleek lines and V8 engine were always going to lend themselves to power upgrades, and appeal to passionate drivers who are never going to settle for stock options.

“Our new package has created the most exciting F-Type available in the world and is certain to thrill serious petrol-heads anywhere.”

VIP Design have also lowered the suspension by 30mm, improving the car’s poise and stance, while harder and stronger suspension parts, joints and rubbers have been fitted to improve responsiveness on the road.

The company has also uprated the exhaust system to a full manifold back high performance exhaust system, available with two different switchable sound levels.

“The exhaust was not deep enough, more of a shriek than a V8 rumble,” Mr Busby added. “The VIP Design F-Type Predator changes all that, the full manifold back high performance exhaust system is switchable, allowing different purr levels – loud and really loud! You can’t help but grin every time you press the button.”

Other notable augmentations include carbon Fibre bonnet vents, front and rear carbon fibre splitters and a polished carbon fibre rear diffuser, Hand cast aluminium wheels are available in 24 different design options and 28 different colours add to the look, while for extra bling, owners can add window tinting in a variety of almost 50 shades of grey.

The package is fitted and installed at the VIP Design studio in Warwickshire, with mail-order and international shipping also available, priced from £12,600.
