2014 Jaguar F-TYPE
The F-Type deploys two of Jaguar’s core technologies: aluminum construction and supercharging. On the aluminum front, Jag utilized the latest in lightweight alloys to develop its overall architecture. Its clamshell hood is a one-piece stamping. New forming techniques allowed the designers to utilize the type of character lines they envisioned back in the drawing phase. And the all-aluminum double wishbone front and rear suspensions helped engineers to achieve the car’s balance. In its lightest from, the F-Type is roughly 3550 pounds.
the F-Type will offer three engines. There are two takes on its new 3.0-liter V-6 with two horsepower ratings — the base model with 340 horsepower and an estimated 0-to-60 mph time of 5.1 seconds or the F-Type S with 380 horsepower and estimated 4.8 seconds to 60 mph — and the 5.0-liter V-8 with 495 horsepower on tap and an estimated 0-to-60 time of 4.2 seconds powering the F-Type V8 S, distinguished by a unique rear valance with dual tailpipes at each corner.
