The new F-TYPE also offers more driver-focused technology, including a reconfigurable high-definition 12.3-inch Interactive Driver Display, 10” Touch Pro infotainment system complemented with superb 380W Meridian sound systems that offer enhanced sound reproduction. Apple Carplay and Android Auto comes in as a standard.

Julian Thomson, Design Director, Jaguar, said: “Design the most beautiful sports car, with purity, proportion and presence that’s unmistakably Jaguar: that was the challenge we set ourselves. The new F-TYPE is more dramatic than ever, with even greater clarity of purpose in every line, surface and feature, and embodies true Jaguar design DNA.”

“State-of-the-art technologies together with luxurious materials and finishes deliver beauty with purpose in an interior which will delight driver and passenger alike even before the engine starts and the journey begins. Jaguar has been making sports cars for more than 70 years, and that rich heritage has inspired the team to create something truly extraordinary.”

F-TYPE’s award-winning design has evolved still further with a focus on even greater purity and discipline to the perfectly-sculpted form. Super-slim pixel LED headlights** with subtly updated signature ‘Calligraphy’ J daytime running lights, and sweeping direction indicators, blend perfectly into the ‘liquid metal’ surfacing of the new clamshell bonnet, exaggerating the car’s visual width and accentuating its assertive stance. The new front bumper and subtly enlarged grille deliver even more visual impact and presence.

The rear haunches enhance the F-TYPE’s inherently dramatic, purposeful form, while the new slender rear lights combine an unmistakable LED chicane signature, inspired by the Jaguar I-PACE all-electric Performance SUV, with subtle monogram pattern detailing and a fine ‘pinstripe’ beneath.

Chris Ward, President, Coventry Motors Corp, said: “The Jaguar F-TYPE truly is the worthy successor of the most beautiful car ever made, the legendary E-TYPE.

The F-TYPE still embodies the traditional Jaguar craftsmanship and is enhanced with modern contemporary design. Like its predecessor, the E-TYPE, it sports a distinct luxury Sports car look that made everyone who laid eyes on the vehicle mesmerized.

In the 1960s when the E-TYPE was released, it was ahead of its league with its racing qualifications, engine performance and, head turning good looks.

The F-TYPE exemplifies the same thrilling drive experience, performance and the show stopping design and stance.”

As befits a true sports car, the default mode is characterised by the large central rev counter. This feature and the gearshift light subtly convey the F-TYPE’s driver-focused character and performance potential.

Even before the drive begins, the F-TYPE delights the driver with the visual theatre of flush, deployable door handles and deployable air vents. Pressing the start button brings the car to life with its hallmark exhaust flare as purposeful as ever

Powering the new F-TYPE are the 2.0L 300PS turbocharged four-cylinder petrol engine and the 575PS V8s that is only available upon order. The 300PS turbocharged has a maximum torque of 400Nm being generated from just 1,500 t0 4,500 rpm. It is offered with a rear-wheel drive. It can accelerate from 0-100kph in just 5.7 seconds, and reach a maximum speed of 250 kmh.

Customers who choose 575PS supercharged V8s benefit from the new Quiet Start function, which ensures a more subtle, refined sound – the electrically-actuated bypass valves in the rear silencer remain closed until they automatically open up under load. If desired, Quiet Start can be over-ridden by selecting Dynamic Mode or by pressing the switchable exhaust button before starting the engine.

The distinctive crackle and pop on the overrun synonymous with F-TYPE, remains; the sounds meticulously tuned to suit the range of powerful four and eight-cylinder engines. Highly efficient, close-coupled particulate filters reduce emissions.
