2017 Jaguar F-Type


Jaguar returns to the two-seater sports arena with the F-Type. The car is riding on a shortened XJ chassis, and can be had as a convertible or coupe, and uses an all-aluminum body and chassis. There are multiple engine configurations from the 3 liter supercharged V6 to the 5 liter supercharged V8, with the low end motor producing 340hp and a 0-60 of 5.1 second, and the biggest engine giving 567hp and a 0-60 of 4.7 second. Top speed is about 150 for the smaller V6, and 170 for the V8s. The vehicle features such amenities as 25 different driving profiles for the suspension, a low center of gravity, an automatically deploying spoiler wing, and gives the F-Type fantastic handling. The convertible top will open/close in 12 seconds, there are bi-xenon headlights, an active exhaust to beef up the engine note, and an interior of leather and brushed aluminum.
