Jaguar has announced the launch of the F-TYPE which represents a return to the company’s heartland: a two seater convertible sports car focused on performance, agility and driver involvement. The Jaguar F-TYPE is a continuation of a sporting bloodline that stretches back more than 75 years and encompasses some of the most beautiful, thrilling and desirable cars ever built. Joining the XK convertible and coupe models, the new F-TYPE provides Jaguar with a broader line of sports and GT models.
Two variants of the F-TYPE will be available in India – F-TYPE S and F-TYPE V8S. They are powered respectively by Jaguar’s new 3.0-litre V6 supercharged petrol engine in 380PS output and its 5.0-litre V8 supercharged petrol producing 495PS. The range-topping F-TYPE V8S will reach 100 km/h in 4.3 seconds and has a top speed of 300 km/h. The 380PS V6 F-TYPE S will reach 100 km/h in 4.9 seconds and has a top speed of 275 km/h.
Prices for the Jaguar F-TYPE S are INR 1.37 Crore and for the range topping F-TYPE V8S are INR 1.61 Crore. (Ex-showroom Mumbai, pre- Octroi).
