When Jaguar revealed its F-Type sports car almost eight years ago, there was a lot riding on those fetching flanks. Being the spiritual successor to the E-Type, one of the few vehicles to be recognized in the Museum of Modern Art, the F-Type was following in rather legendary tire track. Never one to shy from a challenge, the F-Type continued the legacy of its legendary predecessor and the unveiling of the 2021 F-Type solidifies its position in the Jaguar pantheon.
What’s New Pussy Cat?
Refreshed with an updated look, improved technology and suspension upgrades, the muscle-bound 2021 F-TYPE is Jaguar design in its most beautiful form. Undeniably a driver’s car, the F-Type is powered by the most thrilling of Jaguar’s gas engines, all of which feature innovative technologies for better fuel consumption and emissions, without compromising on performance. The base engine is a 2.0 litre Turbocharged, delivering 296HP or drivers can choose from a 3.0 litre Supercharged V6 with 380HP of output or, at the top of the range, a 5.0 litre Supercharged V8 with an output of 575HP. The most powerful engine can take you from 0-60mph in a hair-raising 3.5 seconds.
Be moved, be very moved.
Power delivery is smooth and linear, and the Active Sports Exhaust lets everyone within earshot know there is a new top predator in town. The 2021 F-Type resonates with anyone who loves the thrill of the drive. Whether it’s g-force of confidently taking a curve at speed or the freedom of feeling your wind blowing in the open air. Available in two trims, there are no wrong answers when choosing between coupe and convertible.
There are three drive modes on an F-TYPE: Sport, Dynamic and Rain/Ice/Snow. Switching to Dynamic Mode stiffens the suspension, turns the exhaust note up and quickens the throttle response. Rain/Ice/Snow Mode is ideal for harsh weather conditions, curbing the power delivery for greater control. But no matter the mode, from the minute you get behind the wheel, your driving experience will be totally engrossing
