Image
The entry-level F-TYPE uses Jaguar’s new 3.0-litre V6 S COUPE supercharged petrol engine, good for 340 PS (250 kW; 335 hp), 0 to 60 mph (0 to 97 km/h) in 5.1 seconds, and a top speed of 161 mph (259 km/h). In the middle comes the F-TYPE S, with the same engine tuned for 380 PS (279 kW; 375 hp), a top speed of 171 mph (275 km/h), and 0 to 60  mph in 4.8 seconds. The top of the range model is the V8 S, with Jaguar’s 5.0-litre, 495 PS (364 kW; 488 hp) supercharged petrol engine. The layout is front-engined, rear-wheel-drive. The gearbox is an eight-speed automatic with paddle-shifters offering manual override. There is a mechanical limited-slip differential on the V6 S and an electronic limited-slip differential on the V8. The engine choices will remain unchanged for F-TYPE CoupĂ©, but with the addition of a higher performance V8 R model producing 550 PS (400 kW; 540 hp) in lieu of the convertible V8 S model.
