Jaguar's new F-TYPE; the first 'full-blooded' Jaguar two-seater sports car to be launched for more than 50 years, is now available in Australia.

Jaguar dealers across Australia will take delivery of their first Jaguar F-TYPE sports cars in the next week or so.

"Contemporary, evocative and progressive, the F-TYPE has been engineered to deliver pure dynamic driving reward and stunning performance," said Mark Eedle, Jaguar Australia's Brand Manager.

"Jaguar is a founder member of the sports car segment with a rich sporting 'bloodline' stretching over 75 years, and in the F-TYPE we've reignited that flame. The F-TYPE isn't designed to be like anyone else's sports car. It's a Jaguar sports car - ultra-precise, powerful .... " said Adrian Hallmark, Global Brand Director.

Three variants of the F-TYPE are available in Australia- F-TYPE, F-TYPE S and F-TYPE V8 S. Each is distinguished by the power output of its supercharged petrol engine with all engines featuring stop/start technology to maximise efficiency.

The details

  • The F-TYPE is an all-new, two-seater, Jaguar sports car
  • Front-engined and rear-wheel drive, the F-TYPE is engineered to deliver pure dynamic driving reward and stunning performance
  • Visually, the F-TYPE's exterior demonstrates a new sports car design language for Jaguar, with cleaner lines delivered through the discreet use of technology such as deployable spoiler and door handles
  • The F-TYPE's interior features a driver-focused philosophy, with engaging controls encased in dramatic architecture. Unique technical grains tailor the trim materials, further differentiating the dual-cockpit cabin
  • The F-TYPE is constructed around the fourth generation of Jaguar's acclaimed lightweight aluminium architecture using industry-first technology
  • Torsional and lateral stiffness have been prioritised to maximise handling agility. Around that rigid aluminium structure, every system - steering, brakes, powertrain - has been optimised for immediacy of response to driver inputs
  • All-aluminium double wishbone front and rear suspension systems provide precise body control, with adaptive damping adding a further layer of dynamic capability

NOTE:

* Manufacturer's List Price (MLP) excludes dealer delivery fees and the numerous statutory charges (commonly known as on-road costs). Additionally, please note that all prices, fees and charges are subject to change without notice, as are the specifications.
