I looked into it a little more. The 5.0 supercharged is going to be produced at first, but the plan is to bring the BMW engine after that. My guess is the 5.0 version will become worth a shit ton of money because it will be more rare in the end.

Is that 5.0 the Ford engine, built at the Ford factory? Or ?

I think JLR now assembles it with parts they purchase from Ford. But I really don't know for sure what they have going on. I know it's about $28 grand for a replacement.
