Jaguar is reportedly working on a range-topping version of the 2015 XE that will be powered by a V8 engine. Jaguar already confirmed that the F-Type's V6 3.0-liter supercharged engine will be offered in the XE, but I guess that isn't enough for them!

Auto Express reports that the motor will deliver 542 bhp. That figure matches the 5.0-liter V8 supercharged engine in the F-Type R Coupe. With that engine, the Jaguar XE should have a top speed of more than 186 mph.

The range topping model of XE, the XER-S, will likely be revealed in 2016 following the introduction of lesser S and RS derivatives.

This is something to get excited about.

That will be crazy, good on Jaguar's part for keeping V8's alive, this is what we needed in a segment like this at a time where it's getting chopped

I want to see what that V8 engine looks like under the hood of the XER-S. I wonder how tight of a fit the engine would be in there. This will be a killer top of the line model for Jaguar.

Indeed, it sounds like they really want to go M hunting. C63 is about to lose its title of snarliest sports saloon. ;)

Thats a question I think a number of tuning companies will ask, have to fit some more forced induction in their somewhere!
