Dealers of Jaguar in the UK are up for a beautiful ceremony by Jaguar as they get ready to receive the new Jaguar F-Type sports car. The event will take place tomorrow the 18th of April at the coveted home town of Jaguar-Coventry and at the Ricoh Arena which is the town’s landmark. There will be fifty-nine dealers awaiting the keys to this new sports car and if you missed it, we recently did a first drive of the Jaguar F-Type V8 S, the Jaguar F-Type V6 S and the Jaguar F-Type V6 models.
The 60 cars will be parked to assume the shape of the letter “F” before heading out in a convoy towards the A444, their leader will be Jaguar F-Type predecessor, the last Jaguar E-Type ever produced. The Jaguar F-Type recently scooped the award for 2013 Car Design of the Year.
Just a recap, a new 3.0 liter V6, developed from Jaguar’s 5.0 liter V8, is available in either 340hp or 380hp variants, powering the F-Type and F-Type S respectively. The V6 models are joined by a new member of Jaguar’s V8 engine family producing 495hp and 625Nm of torque; it’s the F-Type V8 S model. The engine offers a torque-to-weight ratio of 375Nm/tonne, accelerates to 100km/h in 4.3 seconds and on to an electronically limited top speed of 300km/h.
The 380hp V6 F-Type S covers the 0-100km/h in 4.9 seconds and has an electronically limited top speed of 275km/h. The 340hp V6 F-Type accelerates to 100km/h in 5.3 seconds and on to an electronically limited top speed of 260km/h. Prices for the Jaguar F-TYPE start at £58,520 for the 340 PS V6 model.
