The new Jaguar F-Type represents a return to the company's heart: a two-seat, convertible sports car focused on performance, agility and driver involvement. The F-Type is a continuation of a sporting bloodline that stretches back more than 75 years and encompasses some of the most beautiful, thrilling and desirable sports cars ever built. Joining the XK convertible and coupe models, the new F-Type provides Jaguar with a broader line of sports and GT models.
With front-engine, lightweight aluminum architecture and rear-wheel drive, the F-Type is engineered to be a true high-performance sports car. Available in three models, F-Type, F-Type S and the F-Type V8 S, powered respectively by the new Jaguar supercharged 3-litre V6 engine with either 340 or 380 horsepower and a tire-shredding 5-litre supercharged V8 version dishing out 495 horsepower.
The F-Type asymmetric cabin layout reflects the sharp focus on the driver. The aim was to create an enveloping cockpit for the driver with all the controls placed naturally to hand and logically grouped, allowing maximum attention on the driving experience.
The Jaguar F-Type is scheduled to arrive in the Canadian market in spring-summer 2013. The base F-Type will start at $76,900 with the F-Type S at $88,900 and F-Type V8 S at $100,900.
