Sports Cars > Jaguar F-Type
Long rumored, often speculatively rendered, and once before making it to the concept stage (12 years ago!), the Jaguar F-Type has been on the horizon for what seems like an eternity. But now it's here. Built on an aluminium chassis, the Jaguar F-Type is a strict two-seater. It's smaller and more agile than the XK, and it comes in three versions; the F-Type, the F-Type S and the F-Type V8 S. The three different trims equate to three different engines; a supercharged 340 horsepower 3.0 litre V6, a supercharged 380 horsepower 3.0 litre V6, and a supercharged 5.0 litre V8 which produces 495 horsepower. Initially the sole transmission option for the F-Type was a ZF 8-speed semi-automatic.
Looks-wise the Jaguar F-Type is typically Jaguar, and there are many styling cues tying it to the brands other offerings. At the same time it's got a slightly more youthful and dynamic look about it, which suits the car's target market - one which is less concerned with getting golf clubs in the back than your average XK buyer.
