New Jaguar F-Type — two-seat sports car — 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.
All engines – 300 horsepower turbocharged 4-cylinder, 380HP supercharged V6 and 450HP and 575HP V8s – feature active exhaust systems, which are switchable either as an option or as standard. Customers who choose the 450HP or 575HP supercharged V8s benefit from the new Quiet Start function, which ensures a more subtle, refined sound – the electrically-actuated bypass valves in the rear silencer remain closed until they automatically open up under load. If desired, Quiet Start can be over-ridden by selecting Dynamic Mode or by pressing the switchable exhaust button before starting the engine.
The new 450HP supercharged V8 has been developed to offer exploitable and rewarding performance – its maximum torque of 580Nm being generated from just 2,500 rpm. It is offered with a choice of all-wheel drive and rear-wheel drive. Both versions can accelerate from 0-60mph in just 4.4 seconds, and reach a maximum speed of 177mph.
Raising the output of the all-wheel drive F-Type R’s supercharged V8 to 575HP and 700Nm (up from 550HP and 680Nm respectively) delivers truly outstanding performance in all weathers and in all conditions, while retaining its inherent tractability and day-to-day usability. Performance is exceptional: the benchmark sprint to 60mph takes just 3.5 seconds, while maximum speed is an electronically-limited 186mph.
The 2021 Jaguar F-Type is now available to order and priced from £54,060 in the UK.
