Many fine works of art are showcased in a gallery or museum; unless it’s a Jaguar F-Type. Crafted to deliver an invigorating driving experience by fusing agile handling with reformed power and performance, the F-Type shines in all environments.
Crafted with your choice between a roaring V8 or purring V6, both coupled to a Roots-type twin vortex supercharger and superb handling, it never fails to excite.
The 2016 Jaguar F-Type doesn’t stand out in a crowd; it pounces out with its perfect proportions, shaped aerodynamic figure, and athletic looks.
Following the naturally contoured lines, the glaring front bumper combined with front splitter captivates your eye as it increased downforce and keeps the car focused.
With an angry looking grill, seamless lines, and sharp looking Adaptive Front Lights, the F-Type doesn’t require an introduction.
The pristine interior, matched with tasteful, yet, aggressive styling. All brought together by eye-catching details ranging from the trim to the integrated air vents that disappear when climate control is off.
The interior design allows maximum road visibility that isn’t hindered by unnecessary clutter. Nestled into the driver’s seat, and treated to a display of the road like none other, with accents of easy to read dash clusters and instruments. The steering wheel, wrapped in leather is cultured, not crowded with buttons ranging from radio controls to voice commands.
Bundling these great features is your choice between two options you can’t go wrong with, premium leather seats or Suedecloth.
If you dare to push the Start/Stop button, an immediate roar from an angry and grouchy Supercharged 3.0 litre V6 or Supercharger 5.0 litre V8, as it awakens from its slumber. Once alerted the F-Type refrains from letting all hell loose until you decide it’s time to play, and from there it’s nothing but smiles.
Designed to be light on its feet, the Jaguar utilises its good look’s to add downforce to the body of the car, reducing lift, and maximising handling and traction making handling around tight turn’s a breeze.
With the V6 doing 0-100 km/h from 4.9 seconds and the V8 getting from 0-100 km/h in a gutting wrenching 3.7 seconds. But none of these numbers matter. The Jaguar F-Type is a driver’s car, an automobile designed to be driven and enjoyed. While numbers may look great on paper, nothing compares to the real feel on the road.
When it’s all said and done, the F-Type is the car that you are willing to stay out past curfew, skid into meetings late or just drive all night long. The F-Type is not just a sports car; it’s a companion, with a shot of Red Bull, and provides a smile on the side.
