NGK wins Jaguar OE contract

Jaguar’s newly-launched two-seater sports car, the F-Type, has NGK Spark Plugs (UK) Ltd original equipment (OE) spark plugs at the heart of its engines.

The car is the first two-seater sports car from Jaguar since the iconic E-Type was launched 50 years ago and features NGK spark plugs on the new 3.0-litre V6 supercharged petrol engine in both 340bhp and 380bhp outputs and the 5.0-litre V8 supercharged 495bhp model.

The three-litre V6 and V6 S F-Types are fitted with NGK’s SILZKAR7C10S M12, Hex 14, double precious metal spark plug with extra long reach. The ground electrode is directionally orientated to the thread-cut to guarantee ideal positioning within the combustion chamber.

In addition, the five-litre V8 is fitted with the company’s ILKAR7C10 M12, Hex 14, double precious metal spark plug with extra long reach.

Tim Ward, Deputy General Manager – Sales & Marketing, NGK Spark Plugs (UK) Ltd, said: “It is fantastic that our spark plugs are featured on such an iconic model as the new Jaguar F-Type and their fitment is tribute to the hard work and expertise of the NGK UK OE team.

“Jaguar sports cars are classic symbols of British engineering and for our innovative products to be fitted to them is testimony to the efforts we make as a company to satisfy the requirements of vehicle manufacturers who demand the best possible products for their models.”
