 JAGUAR ANNOUNCES HI-TECH TWO STROKE ENGINE;
 PROGRAM TO BE DEVELOPED BY ORBITAL
 MAHWAH, N.J., May 20 /PRNewswire/ -- Jaguar engineers have unveiled a prototype two-stroke engine which could power a new generation of fuel efficient, low emission, high performance luxury cars.
 The compact and lightweight V6 engine is the culmination of a four and a half year research program by a group of engineers at Jaguar's engine research and development center at Whitley in Coventry, England, working in conjunction with the Orbital Engine Corporation of Australia and Queens University, Belfast, Northern Ireland.
 The next phase of the development will be a full scale joint venture program with Orbital, world leaders in fuel injection and emission control technology for two stroke engines.
 Jaguar's Group Chief Engineer - Engines and Transmissions Trevor Crisp announced the joint project with Orbital today, saying: "Our objective now is to produce a 350 bhp demonstrator engine within the next two years."
 Developing Jaguar's two stroke engine has been the responsibility of Ron Lee, Jaguar's manager of engine development. "Large displacement two stroke engines could offer major benefits to luxury car manufacturers," said Lee. "They are environmentally friendly, fuel efficient and significantly lighter than the current generation of large car engines. At the same time they have the refinement and performance potential which will always be a hallmark of Jaguar cars."
