The new Jaguar F-TYPE was designed to inspire extraordinary journeys.

Jaguar on the F-Type's styling. It's a beautiful car, that's for sure.

Jaguar F-Type R-Dynamic highlights

The R-Dynamic serves as the entry point to the F-TYPE range. As you'd expect, for a luxury 2-seater sports car, it's well equipped.

One of the coolest features has to be the switchable active exhaust, as this Jaguar video shows:

By pressing a button, you can make the exhaust sound gnarly and raucous. Externally, the R-Dynamic spec has LED headlamps with Jaguar signature daytime running lights (featuring animated direction indicators and auto headlights), as well as a sporty R-Dynamic body pack.

At the back, there are LED taillights. The R-Dynamic has 19-inch alloy wheels, with a diamond-turned contrast finish. Behind those rims sit 355mm front brake discs and 325mm brakes at the rear, on the P300. P380 F-Types have black brake callipers and larger 380mm front brake discs. The F-Type has a deployable boot lid spoiler, plus neat flush exterior door handles for a modern look and the classic Jaguar leaper.

The rear diff is an open one, with torque vectoring on the P300. The P380 gets an LSD with torque vectoring. Other differences between the 2 engines don't stop there. The P380 also has adaptive dynamic suspension, where the P300 has a passive set-up. The P380 also gets twin-centre mounted exhaust pipes, as well as 20-inch, 6-spoke diamond-turned alloy wheels.

Further helping to keep things under control, the F-Type has multiple driving modes (rain, ice and snow), as well as Dynamic Stability Control (DSC).

The standard lighting is Phosphor Blue lighting and single-zone air conditioning.

Infotainment wise, the Jaguar has a 10-inch Touch Pro screen.

The F-Type also has keyless entry and a high-resolution 12.3-inch interactive driver display.

Jaguar F-TYPE R

One of the key reasons to go for the R is its mammoth 5.0-litre V8 and AWD system, it's the only F-Type with such a drivetrain. You also get sporty-looking red brake callipers, with larger disc brakes, pixel LED headlights and a unique to the R F-Type interior. There's also an aluminium centre console with R branding and R badging on the leather steering wheel. If that wasn't enough, you'll also enjoy quad tailpipes and configurable dynamics.

2.0-litre F-Types will blast from 0-100km/h in only 5.7 seconds. They'll carry on to a top speed of 250km/h. Peak power measures 221kW, while the torque is a stout 400Nm.

For the V6 Jaguar F-Types, performance is as follows. Power, an impressive 280kW, while the torque measures a very hefty 460Nm. That extra oomph means the V6 models can accelerate quicker, only 4.9 seconds to 100km/h. The top speed is higher, an extra 25km/h, meaning the V6 Jaguar F-Types will reach 275km/h!

For those who want some serious excitement in their lives, the F Type R is the one to go for. Thanks to its larger 5.0-litre V8, this F-Type has 423kW and 700Nm. As you can imagine, this car is rapid.

Picture not described

The top speed soars up to 300km/h. The 0-100km/h time drops to just 3.7 seconds, that's quicker than a 1987 Porsche 959 turbo and even a Ferrari F40. It's the same 0-100 time as the Jaguar XJ220, a true 1990s supercar.

Did you know?

Jaguar says the F-Type is a spiritual successor to the legendary and acclaimed Jaguar E-Type sports car.
