Powerful, agile and distinctive, F-TYPE is a true Jaguar sports car, engineered for high performance and instantaneously responsive handling - the latest in a distinguished bloodline. Supercharged engines, lightweight aluminium body construction and advanced driving technologies deliver an experience that is intuitive, instinctive and alive.
JUST YOUR F-TYPE
There are three models in the F-TYPE range. Each offers its own distinctive flavour and characteristics,
while all are equally at home on the switchback of a mountain pass, on the highway or in the city.
F-TYPE is designed to deliver pure driving pleasure.
F-TYPE S adds greater power and an increased range of sophisticated driving technologies.
F-TYPE V8 S provides towering performance and even greater levels of dynamic ability and control.
Desire is a new film by Jaguar and Ridley Scott Associates starring Damian Lewis and the new F-TYPE,
featuring exclusive music by Lana Del Rey. It's a gripping story of betrayal, retribution, passion and
F-TYPE’s beating heart is supercharged. Power is delivered from a range of three highly advanced engines —
3.0 V6 340PS, 3.0 V6 380PS and 5.0 V8 495PS. Each features a Roots-type twin vortex supercharger mounted on the
‘V’ of the engine to maintain its compact dimensions. Jaguar is a leader in Supercharged induction
technology — it provides a linear delivery of performance and high levels of torque at all engine speeds,
minimising the gap between the driver’s demand for power and the engine’s response.
F-TYPE roars right from its heart. Its Sports Exhaust growls powerfully from start up building to a race-car
inspired crescendo. An Active Sports Exhaust — standard on F-TYPE S and optional on F-TYPE — uses
active bypass valves to allow exhaust gases to exit more directly for a deep, dramatic sound. A Switchable
Active Exhaust, allowing manual control of the system, is available on every model.
F-TYPE’s Quickshift transmission is both lightning-fast and superbly refined. Using eight closely-spaced
gears, the engine is kept in its most effective rev range to deliver optimum power and torque at all speeds.
The selectable Dynamic Mode adds adrenaline to your drive by altering the throttle response and gearshift
programmes to further emphasise the car’s sporting character.
F-TYPE’s lightweight aluminium body structure with high torsional rigidity is the ideal platform for a
convertible sports car, and is fundamental to the way it performs, handles and feels. This strong, stiff
structure provides an inherently stable platform for precise, agile handling and is the perfect complement
to the high-performance engine range. Together they produce exceptional power-to-weight and torque-to-weight
ratios - the real world measures of sports car performance.
Balanced and capable, F-TYPE’s exceptional handling starts with its physics. Its centre of gravity is as
low as possible. Its even weight distribution has been meticulously engineered, right down to the
locating of the battery and washer bottle at the rear. Length defines a car’s agility, its width affects
stability. F-TYPE’s 4,470mm by 1,923mm dimensions have been precisely engineered to optimise its
outstanding driving dynamics.
At one with the car, the wheel and the road — you and F-TYPE connect from the moment the start button is
pressed and the engine roars into life. The
driver-focused interior combines intuitive technologies and functional ergonomics with a unique sporting style.
Using advanced techniques derived from the aerospace industry, F-TYPE is strong and rigid with high
power-to-weight and torque-to-weight ratios.
The rear spoiler automatically deploys at higher speeds, reducing lift by up to 120kg, and ensuring
excellent high speed stability.
Performance Braking Systems
Three braking systems are available, each engineered to deliver a confident progressive feel and
sustained, consistent high performance.
A choice of three superb audio systems bring the cockpit to life with incredible, rich sound.
F-TYPE’s strong visual assertiveness can be further enhanced with a range of exterior styling packs.
Even the Roof is Fast
F-TYPE's roof can be raised or lowered in just 12 seconds and operated fully automatically at speeds of
up to 48 km/h.
Refined and lightning-fast with 8 closely-spaced ratios to keep the engine within its most effective rev
range for longer.
Limited Slip Differential improves traction and agility in corners and slippery surfaces. Electronic
Active Differential maximises traction for even greater control.
Instinctively modifies the car’s response to conditions and your driving style.
Configurable Dynamics with Dynamic-i display
Configurable Dynamics allows the driver to define which characteristics are altered when Dynamic Mode is
selected. This feature is controlled via the Dynamic-i display system, which can show performance
indices such as G-Force meter and lap time, plus throttle, steering and brake inputs on the 8 inch
2013 World Car Design of the Year
F-TYPE has won this prestigious award, judged by a distinguished panel of design experts and World Car
of the Year jury members.
