Jaguar unveils stunning new F-Type sports car

Jaguar has revealed the new F-Type.

The latest version of Jaguar’s two-seat sports car – sucessor to the iconic E-Type – has a striking new appearance, having been updated inside and out, and gets more power in its range-topping V8 version.

Jaguar has ditched the V6 engine from the outgoing car and the new model will be available with either a 2.0 litre, four cylinder engine or a 5.0 litre supercharged V8.

The entry level model produces 296bhp and is rear-wheel drive while the V8 develops 444bhp. Those thirsting for even more power should look to the F-Type R, which has an even more powerful version of the 5.0 litre V8 that develops 566bhp – A 24bhp increase on the most powerful version of the older model.

The 2.0 is rear wheel drive, while the 444bhp V8 can be rear or all-wheel drive, and the R model is all-wheel drive only, the extra traction being useful to get all that power on the tarmac.

The lower powered V8 gets from 0-60 in 4.4 seconds, while the R model cuts that to a supercar-standard 3.5 seconds and has a top speed electronically limited to 186mph.

All versions get an eight-speed automatic gearbox.

Outside, the car looks markedly different from the original F-Type. There’s a new, low slung nose with elongated headlights, while at the back the round rear lights have been ditched in favour of a single “blade” unit.

Inside, the cabin is dominated by a new 12.3-inch digital dashboard setup in front of the driver, which is combined with a central infotainment screen incorporating Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.

Prices start at a little over £54,000 – and increase of around £1,700 over the outgoing version – and the new F-Type is offered in coupe or convertible forms. It’s available to order now.
