Order books open for new Jaguar F-TYPE

Order books are now open for the new Jaguar F-TYPE with prices starting from £58,500

Order books are now open for the new Jaguar F-TYPE with prices starting from £58,500. Three variants will be available at launch; the F-TYPE, F-TYPE S and F-TYPE V8 S. Each is distinguished by the power output of its supercharged petrol engine with all engines featuring stop/start technology to maximise efficiency.

The models are powered by a new 3.0-litre V6, developed from Jaguar’s highly acclaimed 5.0-litre V8 and is available in either 340PS or 380PS variants, powering the F-TYPE and F-TYPE S respectively. The 380PS V6 F-TYPE S is capable of 0-60mph in 4.8 seconds (0-100km/h in 4.9 seconds) and has an electronically limited top speed of 171mph (275km/h), with CO2 emissions of 213g/km. The 340PS V6 F-TYPE accelerates to 0-60mph in 5.1 seconds (0-100km/h in 5.3 seconds) and on to an electronically limited top speed of 161mph (260km/h), while emitting just 209g/km of CO2.

The exterior of the F-TYPE features a new interpretation of the bold angular Jaguar grille from which flows the muscular clamshell bonnet with its signature ‘power bulge’. The all important heartline begins its journey in the blade dissecting the shark-like gills on either side of the grille before leading the eye to the top of the front wing, emphasised by the bi-xenon headlamp and integral LED daytime running lights, into the door and towards the rear of the car where it gracefully disappears.
