The Jaguar F-TYPE
The beating heart of the F-TYPE is supercharged. Power is delivered by a range of three highly advanced engines: 3.0L V6 340 hp, 3.0L V6 380 hp and 5.0L V8 550 hp. Each features a Roots-type twin-vortex supercharger, mounted in the “V” of the engine to maintain its compact dimensions. Jaguar uses supercharged induction technology, which provides linear power delivery and high levels of torque at all engine speeds, minimizing the gap between the driver’s demand and the engine’s response.
The F-TYPE roars right from its heart. Its Sport Exhaust growls powerfully from start-up, building to a race-car inspired crescendo. A Switchable Active Sport Exhaust – standard on the F-TYPE S, S AWD and R and optional on the F-TYPE – uses active bypass valves to allow exhaust gases to exit more directly for a deep, dramatic sound.
Panoramic Glass Roof
A full width panoramic roof is optional on F-TYPE Coupe models, and adds even more natural light and airiness to the interior. The panoramic roof includes a manual sun blind.Stunning Styling
Look closely at the XJ. Unique details enhance its coupe-like profile and flowing lines with striking signature styling cues, such as the cat’s claw rear LED light clusters. Wheel design is also a powerful expression of styling. A wide variety of optional designs is available for your XJ in 19 inch or 20 inch diameters.
Even the top is fast – it can be raised or lowered in just 12 seconds at speeds of up to 30 mph. Built with composite materials designed to reduce wind and road noise, the compact and weight-saving fabric convertible top enhances the performance capabilities of the F-TYPE. The flush-fitting heated rear glass window and compact size when folded keep the F-TYPE rear deck low and sleek, avoiding the need for a tonneau cover. The top is available in four colors: Black (standard), Red, Beige and Grey.
Adaptive Front Lighting
See farther and make nighttime driving safer with optional Adaptive Front Lighting.* This advanced system measures vehicle speed and the angle of the steering wheel, swiveling the lamps by up to 14 degrees outward, and up to 7 degrees inward, for improved visibility during cornering. The optional Intelligent High Beam system automatically switches between low and high beams as necessary. Adaptive Front Lighting and Intelligent High Beam are part of the optional Vision Pack.
Rear lights sweep around from the side of the car, kept slim by elegant LED technology. From behind, they give the F-TYPE a sense of width and beautifully dynamic proportions.
Featuring two large analog dials – essential in a sports car – instruments are simple, clear and easy to read. The three-spoke steering wheel incorporates key functions for ease of control. Gear selector paddles, mounted behind the spokes, let you select gears sequentially with your fingertips, without taking your hands from the wheel. The console-mounted Jaguar SportShift Selector offers full Auto Mode plus a Sport Mode, which allows manual operation for even greater driver involvement. Sequential gear selection is provided by tipping the lever forward to shift down a ratio, and pulling it back to shift up a gear. The F-TYPE has an 8 inch color Touch-screen that provides intuitive control of many features, including navigation, infotainment and on vehicles equipped with the optional Performance Pack, the Dynamic-i system.**
At one with the car and the road – you and the F-TYPE connect from the moment you press the start button and the engine roars to life. The cabin architecture is designed to provide optimum visibility with minimal distractions. Its 1+1 configuration wraps around the driver, sitting low in the heart of the F-TYPE, close to the center of gravity.
Push the start button and the F-TYPE comes alive with a cascade of light from the console’s switchgear. Configurable Lighting, standard on the F-TYPE S, the F-TYPE V8 S and the F-TYPE R, adds unique personalization, with choices of Phosphor Blue, Pale Blue, White, Coral or Red to suit your mood. Activate Dynamic Mode and the lighting switches to vibrant Red on the door grab handles, center console and instrument cluster.
Active Center Air Vents
To keep the center console as low and sleek as possible, the F-TYPE features Active Center Air Vents. They are activated automatically by the climate control system, and only rise when needed for extra airflow, retracting when not in use. With these deployable air vents, plus the door handles and rear spoiler, the F-TYPE keeps its technology hidden until needed.
