As the road-ready evolution of the C-X16 concept car, the brand new Jaguar F-Type progresses from its predecessor with enhanced style and inspiring performance.
The 1+1 convertible is provided in three tailored specifications, with even the standard version delivering a generous equipment list.
Jaguar upholds the highest standards of quality throughout the construction of its vehicles, and the safety of the F-Type is as strong and reassuring as its power.
The model's ESP creates a reassuring electronic safety net, anticipating potential incidents and putting protective measures into place. Should a collision occur, the car's impact-absorbing chassis supports the airbags and restraining seatbelts in minimising the harm to cabin occupants.
In crafting the sleek body of the vehicle, Jaguar has paid minute attention to detail; each door handle has been subtly integrated to maintain the streamlining of the model's flanks. A lightweight soft-top roof sits atop the convertible, operating in only 12 seconds and at speeds of up to 30mph. At 60mph, the highly aerodynamic rear spoiler deploys automatically to enhance downforce and lend the F-Type road-hugging accuracy.
As expected of any Jaguar model, the F-Type is customisable to a bespoke look and feel, creating a glamorous, stylish aura that's exceptionally personal.Each of the 13 available paintwork shades is matched by a subtly contrasting roof colour, and the selection of sports and performance seats are enveloped in sumptuous leather.
Two 3.0-litre V6 engines and an intensely powerful 5.0-litre, 488bhp V8 engine are provided by Jaguar to propel the F-Type.
At its maximum potential, the V8 F-Type S roars from 0-60mph in just 4.2 seconds on the trajectory to 186mph.
All versions of the model incorporate a fluid eight-speed “QuickShift" transmission with sequential shift. Higher specification levels guarantee more reassuring electronic assistances and support on each journey – Active Damping, Winter Mode and Active Differential to name just a small selection.
