2013 Jaguar F-TYPE configurator launched, priced from $69,000*
Jaguar has laid down a price tag on its sultry new aluminum-chassis’d convertible, the 2013 F-TYPE. Buyers looking to bring one of the sports cars home will face down an MSRP of $69,000 (*plus a $875 destination fee). That price tag includes a supercharged 3.0-liter V6 engine good for 340 horsepower mated to an eight-speed ZF paddleshift automatic. Step up to the $81,000* F-TYPE S, and the same engine serves up an additional 40 horsepower, active exhaust, a mechanical limited-slip differential, uprated brakes and launch control, among other niceties. The extra grunt shoots the convertible to 60 mph in 4.8 seconds (down from 5.1) and increases the roadster’s top speed by 10 mph to 171 mph.
If you’d rather have a V8, the Jaguar F-TYPE V8 S boasts the company’s delectable supercharged 5.0-liter V8 and can be had for $92,000 plus delivery. With 495 horses, the top-tier F can click off the 0-60 run in 4.2 seconds on its way to a 182 mph top end. Start saving your pennies. In the meantime, check out the machine’s debut video below as well as the full press blast. If you’re feeling a bit more masochistic (or a bit better about your finances than we are), you can head over to the Jaguar site to configure your own F-TYPE.
