Jaguar’s F-Type sportscar has received a makeover and it looks better than ever! Here's pricing and specs for the newcomer.
It’s hard not to like the F-Type and we have a soft spot for its sporty looks, sonorous engine vocals and impressive performance abilities. Now, Jaguar has updated the F-Type with fresh styling and updated interior features while still offering a choice of powerful 4-, 6- and 8-cylinder engines to suit your performance needs.
The interior remains familiar but gains a new digital instrument cluster and a Touch Pro infotainment system.
The F-Type’s aggressive, yet stylish design approach is communicated with an enlarged honeycomb grille which is flanked by slim headlights with J-shaped daytime running lights and complemented with a new clamshell bonnet. Bulging rear quarters hint at the F-Type’s intent while new rear taillights give the car a fresh look from behind.
The major changes inside the F-Type include a new customisable 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster as well as a Touch Pro infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto capability. Furthermore, there are also 2 enhanced Meridian sound systems to choose from!
The F-Type R tops the range and it offers even more brutal performance figures.
All engines are mated with an 8-speed Quickshift automatic transmission and the F-Type range starts with the 4-cylinder, 2.0-litre turbocharged engine with 221 kW and 400 Nm of torque. For more grunt, a supercharged 3.0-litre V6 with 283 kW and 459 Nm is also available.
An uprated F-Type R tops the range and now boasts outputs of 423 kW and 700 Nm of torque (previously 405 kW/680Nm). Zero to 100 kph is blisteringly fast at 3.7 seconds with a top speed of 300 kph.
The F-Type R’s chassis had been updated and rides on 20-inch, 10-spoke wheels in gloss black with a diamond-turned finish and features new adaptive dampers, springs, anti-roll bars and stiffer knuckles and ball joints to deliver improved agility.
All F-Type derivatives feature active exhaust systems which can be fitted as standard or can be had as an option.
A specially-appointed F-Type First Edition will also be offered for a period of 1 year from its introduction.
