The Jaguar F-Type has been facelifted for the 2018 model year and now offers a bit more for the enthusiasts. The range now comprises 28 versions with the option of rear-wheel drive, all-wheel drive, coupe or convertible body style. The Jaguar F-Type receives the updated Touch Pro infotainment system, pinched straight from the Jaguar Land Rover parts bin. Featuring tablet-like operation, this system is a big leap forward. The design of the Jaguar F-Type has not changed dramatically, but there are slight updates to the front bumpers, while full LED headlights have been fitted.
For the GoPro action camera junkies, the car now features the ReRun app, which according to Jaguar, "combines real-time video from the driver's GoPro with key vehicle performance data including speed, throttle position, gear selection, braking force and g-force. The high-quality video - including unique 'highlights' sections - can be downloaded to the driver's smartphone and shared on social media." That sounds like a lot of fun, actually!
There's also a new special edition, called the 400 Sport. It'll be on sale for just one year and features uprated output of 295 kW from its 3.0-litre supercharged V6 motor. More powerful brakes, configurable dynamics, unique alloy wheels, plus 400 Sport badges round off this limited production model. An R-Dynamic model joins the range and features expanded trim levels for the two V6 versions.
The new Jaguar F-Type range goes on sale from the second quarter of 2017.
