Jaguar F-Type Coupe is revealed in at 2013 LA Motor Show. The image provided to us conveys, F-Type Coupe is more adorable than the roadster model.
Honestly speaking, we found that engineers at Jaguar have deployed enormous amount of brain scratching on the new car, because the aesthetics of convertible and coupe version looks a lot different than each other. Though, both of them are of the same badge, wherein the latter one looks as if done with the hardened roof and nothing else, but crisps on seeing the newbie at a glance doesn’t recline us to be F-Type convertible sibling at all.
Hence, the engine specifications are shuffled a bit. On comparison, the F-Type Coupe and Convertible hosts the same engine line-up under their hoods, but the duos differs each other in the range topping variant. The base levels, 3.0L V6 of 335bhp and V6S of 375bhp remain the same in both the hard and soft roofed F-Type. The top-end variant, where the conflict arises between both the Cats, comes with a 488bhp V8S in Convertible and 542bhp V8R in the Coupe version. The 5.0L V8 of 542bhp with 186mph of top speed and 0-100kmph in just 4.0 seconds is the same that is dwelled in the bay of Jaguar XKR-S and XFR-S.
All the engines of Jaguar F-Type Coupe are ensemble with the eight-speed ‘Quickshift’ transmission with full manual sequential control via steering wheel-mounted paddles or the central SportShift lever.
F-Type Coupe pricing was a crucial point for the carmaker to decide how to place the newbie swiftly in the market, without harnessing the siblings of the brand. Despite this argument, British carmaker finally came up with a solution, and they priced the new F-Type at a starting price of £51,235, an impressive £7,000 notch than the Convertible tag. The one who aspires to go for the Type R then he must be ready to shell out the checque of £85,000, which is significantly more than the German rival Porsche Cayman S.
As known, the coupe drives ample of benefits over the convertible trick, this F-Type too is not an exception. The 407-litre boot space over the196-litre of soft-roofed is a major one to name at present. Two golf-sets can easily fit inside this boot. The customers will also get the hatch opening on the curvaceous roof of new Jaguar, but the quench of panoramic roof can only filled in the option provided with the vehicle.
Specifically for being the fastest cat in the lane, F-Type R Coupe gets a Jaguar’s second-generation Electronic Active Differential and Carbon Ceramic Matrix braking system in order to optimize the grip on handling.
