Jaguar’s F-TYPE – successor to the E-Type (which Enzo Ferrari dubbed the most beautiful car ever made) has evolved into a purer, more sculpted and assertive expression of the definitive Jaguar sports car. Luxurious materials, exacting craftsmanship and beautiful detailing define the driver-focused interior
New 12.3-inch HD virtual instrument cluster, enhanced Meridian audio, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto enrich the driving experience.
The F-TYPE R gets a 423kW supercharged V8 that powers it from 0-100km/h in just 3.7 seconds and an uprated chassis with new springs, dampers, anti-roll bars and rear knuckles.
Quickshift transmission meticulously recalibrated offers even faster, crisper gear changes using data gained from the 320km/h Jaguar XE SV Project 8.
Architecture and interior design for the First Edition includes: Exterior Design Pack, Black Contrast Roof, unique 20-inch wheels and 12-way Windsor Leather Performance Seats with Monogram stitching.
The new F-TYPE looks more beautiful than ever and embodies Jaguar design DNA in its purest form. It offers a perfect balance of performance and driver reward with an even more muscular, assertive design and a cabin defined by rich, luxurious materials and beautiful details. The range of powerful, responsive engines includes four-, six- and eight-cylinder options, all matched to eight-speed Quickshift transmissions with full manual control using either the SportShift gear selector or the steering wheel-mounted paddles.
Julian Thomson, Design Director, Jaguar, said: ‘Design the most beautiful sports car, with purity, proportion and presence that’s unmistakably Jaguar: this was the challenge we set ourselves. The new F-TYPE is more dramatic than ever, with even greater clarity of purpose in every line, surface and feature, and embodies true Jaguar design DNA. State-of-the-art technologies, together with luxurious materials and finishes deliver beauty with purpose in an interior which will delight driver and passenger alike, even before the engine starts and the journey begins. Jaguar has been making sports cars for more than 70 years, and that rich heritage has inspired the team to create something truly extraordinary.’
