Jaguar F-Type at Heritage Jaguar
Now available to order from £52,310
The now iconic Jaguar E-Type was first presented to the motoring world in 1961 at the Geneva Motor Show where Enzo Ferrari famously called it "The most beautiful car ever made." As he was an engineer and not a designer, his quote was not only based on the car’s aesthetics, but also on its concept and potential to win races, namely the prestigious 24 Hours of Le Mans. The 1950s had seen Jaguar win this historic event five times, the last of which had been with the Jaguar D-Type, so the company naturally wanted to continue this winning tradition with the new E-Type which was to be available as a coupe and a convertible.
Now you too can experience the latest in this highly distinguished bloodline with the Jaguar F-Type, a sports car that only Jaguar could create, with its effortless performance, precise agile handling coupled with everyday refinement and usability. Whether you opt for the F-Type Coupé or Convertible, manual or automatic transmission, every model is built to embody Jaguar’s legendary state-of-the-art handling, outstanding performance and cutting-edge technology which delivers an unrivalled sports car experience. The range of new Jaguar F-Type options also now includes all-wheel drive for even greater performance capabilities so that now, more than ever before, you can choose an F-Type to suit your needs and your desires with powerful supercharged engines and lightning-fast responsiveness, a lightweight aluminium body construction, an obsession with balance and proportion, sophisticated suspension and a host of advanced driving technologies. The F-Type truly offers a unique driving experience and a heritage that only Jaguar could provide.
Jaguar F-Type Model Options
The F-Type Coupé or Convertible are both available in three model types, each offering distinctive characteristics to suit the individual sports car driver.
F-Type - Designed to deliver pure driving pleasure combining effortless exhilarating performance, instant response and precise agile handling, with everyday refinement and usability.
F-Type S & S AWD - Adds greater power and an increased range of sophisticated driving technologies.
F-Type R & R AWD - Delivers supercar levels of performance combined with advanced dynamic technologies for the ultimate driver-focused experience.
Every Jaguar F-Type is equally comfortable whether taking fast hairpin bends on mountain passes, cruising on motorways or gliding through the city. With Jaguar’s astonishing F-Type range there’s one that’s just perfect for you.
Jaguar F-Type Engine Options
Power is delivered from a range of three advanced petrol engines providing the perfect choice to suit all individual needs with each featuring a Roots-type twin vortex supercharger mounted in the "V" of the engine to maintain the powerplants’ compact dimensions. Jaguar has long been a world leader in supercharged induction technology and the advantages of supercharging are clear and compelling. It provides a linear delivery of performance, and instant access to high levels of torque at all engine speeds, minimising any delay between the driver’s demand for power and the engine’s response. The three engine options are:
3.0 V6 340PS in F-TYPE
3.0 V6 380PS in F-TYPE S
5.0 V8 550PS in F-TYPE R
The F-Type’s Active Sports Exhaust, standard on the F-Type & F-Type S, delivers a crisp note from start up, with the promise of performance building to a race-car inspired crescendo at high rpm and during overrun. The system features active bypass valves which open during performance driving to allow exhaust gases to exit more directly for a deep, dramatic sound. The F-Type R includes a Switchable Active Exhaust allowing manual control of the system for even greater driver involvement.
Jaguar F-Type Transmission Options
Manual transmission is available on F-TYPE and F-TYPE S offering a 6-speed manual gearbox specifically designed for the performance requirements of sports car driving. The precision engineered short-throw gear lever is linked to a close ratio, 6-speed manual gearbox which enables the driver to keep the engine within its optimum rev range for longer, and delivers the purest of driving experiences.
Automatic transmission is available on every F-TYPE. Jaguar’s Quickshift 8-speed automatic transmission is both lightning-fast and superbly refined, offering the benefits of a double clutch transmission and a conventional automatic without the limitations of either. Eight closely-spaced ratios keep the engine within its most effective rev range for longer, providing instantaneous response and outstanding driver feedback, while also optimising the engine for both economy and outright performance. Adaptive software automatically modifies the gear shift strategy, ensuring the right gear is selected for every situation. The driver can also take full manual control of the transmission using either gear shift paddles mounted behind the steering wheel, or the joystick-style SportShift gear selector. Standard on F-TYPE S is Dynamic Launch Mode. This ensures maximum torque is applied through the gear changes delivering optimum acceleration from rest to 100 km/h.
