Jaguar F-Type Coupe (2014–)

Model History

November 2013

F-Type Coupe announced

The F-Type R Coupe is powered by Jaguar’s 5.0-litre supercharged petrol V8 all-aluminium engine in 550PS and 680Nm form, the F-Type R Coupe achieves headline figures of 0-60mph in 4.0-seconds with an electronically limited top speed of 186mph, 50-75mph taking a mere 2.4-seconds. CO2 emissions are 259g/km.

The torsional rigidity of the F-Type R Coupe’s aluminium structure has ensured the best possible basis for offering the connected feel, agility and engaging driving experience expected of a Jaguar sports car. Every response, from the steering to the gearchange, throttle, brakes and the all-round double wishbone suspension, has been finely honed to be accurate, involving and immediate.

The F-Type R Coupe is fitted with Jaguar’s Adaptive Dynamics system that actively controls vertical body movement, roll and pitch rates. The system continuously monitors driver inputs and the attitude of the car on the road, adjusting damper rates accordingly up to 500 times a second to optimise stability. For the F-TYPE R, the Adaptive Dynamics controlling software has a bespoke tune, working in tandem with revised spring rates all-round to deliver consistent, progressive and exploitable handling. Spring rates are increased by 4.3% at the front and 3.7% at the rear (compared to F-TYPE V8 S Convertible).

The F-Type R Coupe uses Jaguar’s Super Performance braking system as standard. This system features 380mm front and 376mm rear discs – with red or black painted calipers. Brake cooling is optimised via under-body channelling of air, the air-flow being derived through the use of Computational Fluid Dynamics analysis.

The F-Type R Coupe’s Performance seats have inflatable side-bolstering and prominent wings for support during high-speed cornering. The seats are finished in premium leather, with the ‘R’ logo embossed on the headrest. A pure ‘Jet’ interior colourway is offered with three options of contrast stitching – Ivory, Red or Firesand – on the instrument panels, door casings, grab-handle highlight and cubby box. There are a further three sporting options on the Jet seats – Ivory, Camel or Red duo-tones, each with similarly-matched contrast stitching.

The F-Type Coupe is powered by Jaguar’s 3.0-litre V6 supercharged petrol engine in 340PS/450Nm tune, and is capable of 0-60mph in 5.1-seconds with an electronically limited top speed of 161 mph. Standard features include Dynamic Mode, sports exhaust – both V6 models use twin, centrally-mounted tailpipes – sports suspension and Jaguar’s Performance Braking system (354/325mm discs front/rear) with silver calipers. The F-Type Coupe is fitted as standard with 18in Vela wheels, partial leather/Suedecloth sports seats and a leather steering wheel with black paddles.

The F-Type S Coupe, powered by Jaguar’s 3.0-litre V6 supercharged petrol engine in 380PS/460Nm tune is capable of 0-60mph in 4.8-seconds on its way to an electronically limited top speed of 171 mph. It features Dynamic Mode, Dynamic Launch, Active Sports Exhaust, sports suspension with Adaptive Dynamics, Jaguar’s High Performance Braking system (380/325mm discs front/rear) with red calipers and a mechanical limited-slip differential. Both Jaguar’s Super Performance and CCM braking systems are optional. The F-Type S Coupe is fitted as standard with 19in Propeller wheels, leather sports seats and a leather steering wheel with Ignis paddles.

October 2018

F-Type Chequered Flag Edition launched

Highlights include a black contrast roof and a Windsor Leather interior featuring performance seats with embossed headrests, a dark brushed aluminium centre console trim finisher and – in recognition of Jaguar’s motorsport successes – a steering wheel with discrete Chequered Flag logo and red leather band to.

20-inch Gloss Black wheels with Diamond Turned finish are exclusive to the Chequered Flag with a red finish on the brake calipers. In place of the F-TYPE R-Dynamic’s Delta aluminium centre console trim, the Chequered Flag features a Dark Brushed Aluminium finisher.

Power comes from the 300PS/400Nm 2.0-litre four-cylinder Ingenium petrol engine or the 340PS/450Nm and 380PS/ 460Nm supercharged 3.0-litre V6 petrol engines. Jaguar F-TYPE Chequered Flag editions are priced from £62,335 OTR.

The Touch Pro infotainment system features Meridian audio and, for the first time in the F-Type, Apple CarPlay and Android auto.

Elsewhere, the damper tune on the F-Type has been refined, giving an improved level of ride comfort at low speed. This has been achieved by reducing the damping by 24% at the lower damping velocities while increasing overall capacity by up to 30%. The rear camera and front park aid are now provided as standard across all F-Type derivatives.

January 2019

Black Edition announced

Black Editions are available across five Jaguar models: XE, XF, XF Sportbrake, E-Pace, F-Type and F-Pace. All Black Edition cars come fitted as standard with black alloy wheels, Black Pack, Privacy Glass and metallic paint – in a choice of colours – as standard.

December 2019

Jaguar F-Type facelifted

The range of engines includes four- and eight-cylinder options, all matched to eight-speed Quickshift transmissions with full manual control using either the SportShift gear selector or the steering wheel-mounted paddles. The manual gearbox is no longer available.

The updated F-Type also offers more driver-focused technology, including a reconfigurable, high-definition, 12.3-inch Interactive Driver Display, Touch Pro infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto as standard and software-over-the-air functionality so future software updates can be made at the customer’s convenience, without having to visit a dealer. Two Meridian sound systems also offer enhanced sound reproduction.

The F-Type's has evolved with super-slim pixel LED headlights with subtly updated signature ‘Calligraphy’ J daytime running lights, and sweeping direction indicators. The ‘liquid metal’ surfacing of the new clamshell bonnet, exaggerates the car’s visual width and accentuates its assertive stance, says Jaguar. The new front bumper and subtly enlarged grille deliver even more visual impact and presence.

The rear haunches enhance the F-Type's inherently dramatic, purposeful form, while the new slender rear lights combine an unmistakable LED chicane signature, inspired by the Jaguar I-Pace all-electric Performance SUV, with subtle monogram pattern detailing and a fine ‘pinstripe’ beneath.

The interior features contemporary materials such as Windsor Leather and satin-finish Noble Chrome. Details include monogram stitch patterns in the seats and door trims, Jaguar Leaper motifs in the headrests, and subtle ‘Jaguar Est.1935’ markings on the centre console finisher, glovebox release button surround, and seatbelt guides.

The 12.3-inch reconfigurable Interactive Driver Display offers a choice of different display modes; including full map mode. As befits a true sports car, the default mode is characterised by the large central rev counter. This feature and the gearshift light subtly convey the F-Type's driver-focused character and performance potential.

All engines – 300PS turbocharged four-cylinder and 450PS and 575PS V8s – feature active exhaust systems, which are switchable either as an option or as standard. Customers who choose the 450PS or 575PS supercharged V8s benefit from the new Quiet Start function, which ensures a more subtle, refined sound – the electrically-actuated bypass valves in the rear silencer remain closed until they automatically open up under load. If desired, Quiet Start can be over-ridden by selecting Dynamic Mode or by pressing the switchable exhaust button before starting the engine.

The distinctive crackle and pop on the overrun synonymous with F-Type, remains; the sounds meticulously tuned to suit the range of powerful four and eight-cylinder engines. Highly efficient, close-coupled particulate filters reduce emissions.

The new 450PS supercharged V8 has been developed to offer exploitable and rewarding performance – its maximum torque of 580Nm being generated from just 2,500rpm. It is offered with a choice of all-wheel drive and – for purists – rear-wheel drive. Both versions can accelerate from 0-60mph in just 4.4 seconds, and reach a maximum speed of 177mph.

Raising the output of the all-wheel drive F-Type R supercharged V8 to 575PS and 700Nm (up from 550PS and 680Nm respectively) delivers truly outstanding performance in all weathers and in all conditions, while retaining its inherent tractability and day-to-day usability. Performance is exceptional: the benchmark sprint to 60mph takes just 3.5 seconds, while maximum speed is an electronically-limited 186mph.

The F-Type R’s increased power is matched to a comprehensively uprated chassis with new, wider, 20-inch, 10-spoke wheels in Gloss Black with diamond-turned finish, and new adaptive dampers, springs, anti-roll bars and stiffer rear knuckles and ball joints, delivering even greater agility and responsiveness.

Taking all of the learning accrued from the development of the limited-edition 200mph Jaguar XE SV Project 8, the Quickshift transmissions in both the new F-Type R and the 450PS V8 models have been recalibrated for a more engaging driving experience. The new F-Type R specifically offers even faster, crisper gear changes when the driver commands shifts manually via the steering wheel-mounted paddles or the SportShift gear selector. Both upshifts and downshifts are more immediate and give an even more connected and responsive feel.

Customers also have the choice of the exclusive F-Type First Edition. Based on the
R-Dynamic models, the First Edition is offered for one model year only, and has refinements such as the Exterior Design Pack in contemporary Dorchester Grey and five-spoke, 20-inch wheels in Gloss Technical Grey with contrast Diamond-Turned finish, complementing the choice of Santorini Black, Eiger Grey or Fuji White paint.

The interior features 12-way Windsor Leather seats in Ebony with Light Oyster stitching, or Mars with Flame Red stitching. Other highlights include the instrument cluster wrapped in Alcantara with Monogram embossing, aluminium gearshift paddles, an Engine Spin centre console finisher with First Edition branding, and an Ebony Suedecloth headliner.
