Specifications may vary according to local market.
5.0-LITRE V8 550PS SUPERCHARGED ENGINE
Powering the F-TYPE R is Jaguar’s incredible 5.0-litre V8 550PS Supercharged engine. It delivers 680 Nm of torque for sheer unadulterated performance at all engine speeds, taking you from 0 to 100 km/h in just 4.2 seconds.
Ready to pounce, F-TYPE’s sweptback headlamps maintain a feline intensity. Their elongated shape melds into F-TYPE’s aerodynamic lines to make them visible from both front and sides. Bi-function HID Xenon headlamps provide an intense white light for an assertive on-road presence, while LED Light-guides create a distinctive nighttime signature.
TORQUE VECTORING BY BRAKING & ELECTRONIC ACTIVE DIFFERENTIAL
Torque Vectoring by Braking intelligently improves cornering control by applying finely metered braking forces individually to the inside wheels as necessary. When F-TYPE’s electronic sensors sense impending understeer, the system applies subtle and precise braking forces to the inner rear wheel, and feeds more torque to the outer rear wheel, finely adjusting the car’s trajectory for optimal handling through the tightest corners. On F-TYPE R, the system works together with its Electronic Active Differential system, complementing each other to optimise traction and cornering ability as well as maximising steering feel and agility.
On automatic models, Adaptive Dynamics instinctively modifies F-TYPE’s response to conditions and your driving style. It analyses acceleration and braking, cornering, throttle and brake pedal activity, as well as road load and kick down activation. Sophisticated adaptive software then selects an appropriate gearshift strategy to suit your drive.
DEPLOYABLE REAR SPOILER
Aerodynamic performance is the essence of F-TYPE’s design, and is seamlessly integrated into the body for low levels of lift and excellent stability at high speed. A front splitter beneath the grille and rear venturi manage airflow along the vehicle’s underside, while the sharply defined tail helps the air separate cleanly at lower speeds. The deployable rear spoiler rises at higher speeds to reduce lift by up to 120 kg, giving you excellent stability. Even the door handles retract when not required, creating an uninterrupted airflow along the flanks.
SWITCHABLE ACTIVE SPORTS EXHAUST
With the Switchable Active Sports Exhaust, your F-TYPE doesn’t just feel breathtaking. It sounds incredibly breathtaking too, from the crisp note during start up, to a race car–inspired crescendo at higher rpms. This system allows you to manually deploy active bypass valves to allow exhaust gases to exit more directly for a deep, dramatic sound.
CONFIGURABLE DYNAMIC MODE
The Configurable Dynamics system, utilised by F-TYPE S and F-TYPE R, allows the driver to define which characteristics are altered when Dynamic Mode is selected. This option also features the Dynamic-i display system, which can show performance statistics such as g-force, lap time, plus throttle, steering and break inputs on the 8-inch touch screen.
QUICKSHIFT 8-SPEED TRANSMISSION
F-TYPE’s Quickshift automatic transmission offers lightning-fast gearshifts, with 8 closely spaced gear ratios to keep the engine within its most effective rev range for longer. The gearbox’s intelligent control system monitors the driving situation as well as style, and automatically modifies the gearshift strategy to ensure the right gear is selected for every situation.
PREMIUM RED LEATHER
This interior features the Performance Seat trimmed in Red Premium Leather with Jet stitching. The upper facia, centre console and door casings are also trimmed in Red Premium Leather, while the Jet carpets are edged with Red Leather with a Jet contrast stitch. Jet stitching is also applied to the door armrests and centre console, adding a distinctive contrast.
DYNAMIC MODE SWITCH
For a more exhilarating drive, activate Dynamic Mode with a flick of a switch. This remaps the car’s software to further emphasise its sporting character. It sharpens the throttle response, increases steering weighting, performs gear shifts more quickly and at higher speeds, and prevents automatic upshifts when the gearbox is used in manual mode.
CONFIGURABLE MOOD LIGHTING
Push the Start button and F-TYPE comes alive with a cascade of light from the console’s switchgear. Configurable Lighting, standard on F-TYPE S and F-TYPE R, adds even greater personalisation with choices of phosphor blue, pale blue, white, coral or red to suit your mood or style. Activate Dynamic Mode and the lighting switches to red on the door grab handles, centre console and instrument cluster.
PANORAMIC GLASS ROOF CONVERTIBLE ROOF
Optional on F-TYPE Coupé models, the full-width panoramic glass roof introduces even more natural light and airiness to the interior. Should it be required, the roof features a manually sliding ‘black-out’ blind for increased seclusion.
Even the roof is fast – raised or lowered in just 12 seconds at speeds of up to 48 km/h (30 mph). Built with composite materials specifically engineered to reduce wind and road noise, the weight saving fabric roof adds to F-TYPE’s performance abilities. The flush-fitting heated rear window and compact stowage keeps F-TYPE’s rear low and sleek, avoiding the need for a tonneau cover, saving even more weight.
