Jaguar has announced the pricing for the 2013 Jaguar F-Type. If you’re hoping to be able to get your hands on Jaguar’s newest sports car, you will need to be able to write a check for at least $69,000 for the base F-Type with a 340 horsepower V6. If you want the more powerful F-Type S with its 380 horsepower engine, it will set you back $81,000. The top F-Type V8 S with its 495 horsepower V8 starts at $92,000.
“Jaguar is a founding member of the sports car segment with a rich sporting bloodline stretching over 75 years, and in the F-TYPE we’ve reignited that flame. The F-TYPE isn’t designed to be like anyone else’s sports car. It’s a Jaguar sports car – ultra-precise, powerful, sensual and, most of all, it feels alive,” Adrian Hallmark, Global Brand Director, Jaguar.
“This is the car that, as a team, we have always wanted to do. It was very much a team operation because we work very closely together and have a strong shared aesthetic. To begin with, I will let people express themselves as to what they think a Jaguar sports car should look like. Of course I will have a view in my head but I won’t impose that on them. It’s important because great things come out of it. It’s an iterative process, it’s about problem solving. Not just the functional and the practical but how to make that line work with that one or that form with another. The whole process is very intimate, very detailed and comes from the first sketches,” Ian Callum, Director of Design, Jaguar.
“Fundamentally, a great sports car is one you’ll look forward to driving because it’s fun, and the F-TYPE definitely delivers on that score. We’ve worked hard to make sure that responses to steering, throttle and
brakes are absolutely immediate, a task made far easier by the rigid aluminum structure at the car’s base. It’s precise and exciting, a car that you’ll want to drive for the sake of driving alone – and it sounds fantastic,” Mike Cross, Chief Engineer, Vehicle Integrity, Jaguar.
