F-TYPE PROJECT 7
F-TYPE Project 7, Jaguar’s most powerful production car ever. The latest in sports car technology with the spectacular style, sound and look of Jaguar’s classic 1950s Le Mans winning D-Type racing cars.
Powerful, agile and distinctive, F-TYPE is a true Jaguar sports car, engineered for high performance and instantaneously responsive handling - the latest in a distinguished bloodline. Supercharged engines, lightweight aluminium body construction and advanced driving technologies deliver an experience that is intuitive, instinctive and alive.
There are four models in the F-TYPE range. Each offers its own distinctive flavour and characteristics, while all are equally at home on the switchback of a mountain pass, on the highway or in the city.
F-TYPE is designed to deliver pure driving pleasure.
F-TYPE S adds greater power and an increased range of sophisticated driving technologies.
F-TYPE V8 S provides towering performance and even greater levels of dynamic ability and control.
F-TYPE R delivers supercar levels of performance combined with advanced dynamic technologies for the ultimate driver focussed experience.
R is intensity. It provides more and delivers the ultimate expression of F-TYPE: the most powerful, the most dynamically capable, the most thrilling.
F-TYPE R is the sports car at its most honed, sensuous and exciting.
F-TYPE’s beating heart is supercharged. Power is delivered from a range of four highly advanced engines – 3.0 V6 250kW, 3.0 V6 280kW, 5.0 V8 364kW and 5.0 V8 404kW. Each features a Roots-type twin vortex supercharger mounted on the ‘V’ of the engine to maintain its compact dimensions. Jaguar is a leader in Supercharged induction technology – it provides a linear delivery of performance and high levels of torque at all engine speeds, minimising the gap between the driver’s demand for power and the engine’s response.
F-TYPE roars right from its heart. Its Sports Exhaust growls powerfully from start up building to a race-car inspired crescendo. An Active Sports Exhaust - standard on selected F-TYPE models - uses active bypass valves to allow exhaust gases to exit more directly for a deep, dramatic sound. A Switchable Active Exhaust, allowing manual control of the system, is also available.
F-TYPE’s Quickshift transmission is both lightning-fast and superbly refined. Using eight closely-spaced gears, the engine is kept in its most effective rev range to deliver optimum power and torque at all speeds. The selectable Dynamic Mode adds adrenaline to your drive by altering the throttle response and gearshift programmes to further emphasise the car’s sporting character.
F-TYPE’s lightweight aluminium body structure with high torsional rigidity is the ideal platform for a sports car, and is fundamental to the way it performs, handles and feels. This strong, stiff structure provides an inherently stable platform for precise, agile handling and is the perfect complement to the high-performance engine range. Together they produce exceptional power-to-weight and torque-to-weight ratios - the real world measures of sports car performance.
Balanced and capable, F-TYPE’s exceptional handling starts with its physics. Its centre of gravity is as low as possible. Its even weight distribution has been meticulously engineered, right down to the locating of the battery and washer bottle at the rear. Length defines a car’s agility, its width affects stability.
At one with the car, the wheel and the road – you and F-TYPE connect from the moment the start button is pressed and the engine roars into life. The driver-focused interior combines intuitive technologies and functional ergonomics with a unique sporting style.
