According to the guys at Insideline.com, the upcoming Jaguar F-Type will get a 5.0 liter V8 engine producing up to 542hp.

The new F-Type was introduced at the New York Motor Show a few weeks ago. The sports car will be production ready in mid-2013 and is based on the C-X16 Concept released at the IAA Motor Show in September of 2011.
