Jaguar Unveils New F-TYPE Model

By Paul Joseph

Iconic British luxury carmaker Jaguar has launched its latest F-TYPE model, billed as embodying Jaguar design DNA in its purest form.

The two-seat sports car is billed as combining both performance and driver reward with a muscular, assertive design and a cabin defined by luxurious materials and beautiful details.

The range of powerful engines includes four- and eight-cylinder options, all matched to eight-speed Quickshift transmissions with full manual control using either the SportShift gear selector or the steering wheel-mounted paddles.

The new F-TYPE also offers more driver-focused technology, including a high-definition Interactive Driver Display, Touch Pro infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto as standard, and two Meridian sound systems.

Julian Thomson, Design Director at Jaguar, said: “Design the most beautiful sports car, with purity, proportion and presence that’s unmistakably Jaguar: that was the challenge we set ourselves.

"The new F-TYPE is more dramatic than ever, with even greater clarity of purpose in every line, surface and feature, and embodies true Jaguar design DNA.

“State-of-the-art technologies together with luxurious materials and finishes deliver beauty with purpose in an interior which will delight driver and passenger alike even before the engine starts and the journey begins. 

"Jaguar has been making sports cars for more than 70 years, and that rich heritage has inspired the team to create something truly extraordinary.”

The new Jaguar F-TYPE is available now in both coupe and convertible forms, from just over £54,000.
