|Jaguar F-type convertible|
The F-Type is Jaguar's new two-seat hardtop (and soon, convertible) sports car. F-Type buyers will get a choice of two engines--a supercharged 3.0-liter V6 or a normally aspirated 5.0-liter V8 - while Jaguar promised that a 450 horsepower supercharged V8 will be offered later. Jaguar says there will be two versions of the V6, with output ratings of 335 and 275 hp. The V-6 models will probably offer the most balanced road handling of all F-Types.
The F-Type will have a top speed in excess of 175 mph, according to Jaguar. The car should accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in less than five seconds. It will compete with the Porsche Boxster and BMW Z4, among others. It certainly looks nice. Sales of the sexy new F-Type will begin next summer in Europe, with other international markets (including dealerships in the USA) to follow shortly thereafter. Sticker price is rumored to be about $70,000 to $80,000USD for the top-of-the-line F-Type models.
