2017 Jaguar F-Type

Buyer's Guide

Jaguar’s F-Type has quickly become a modern day icon and a serious threat to the likes of the Chevrolet Corvette and Porsche 911. Drawing from the heritage of the XK-E (E-Type) from the ‘60s and ‘70s, Jaguar has blended drop-dead gorgeous lines with modern technology and performance – and has done so without sacrificing luxury or comfort.

Headlining the changes to the F-Type for 2017 is a brand new range-topping model. Although the rabid 550-horsepower F-Type R was every bit the high-performance flagship, Jaguar has opted to press its Special Vehicles Operation (SVO) team into action with an even faster, more aggressive trim called SVR.

The F-Type SVR builds on the F-Type R’s 5.0-litre supercharged V8 with new intercoolers and a lightweight titanium exhaust to produce 575 hp and 516 lb-ft of torque. Tweaks to the eight-speed automatic, rear torque vectoring differential, and the all-wheel drive system allow the F-Type SVR to rocket to 100 km/h in 3.7 seconds, and on top an electronically-limited top speed of 200 mph (322 km/h), making it the fastest Jaguar since the XJ220 supercar of the ‘90s. The roadster is limited to 314 km/h (195 mph).

SVR F-Types can be distinguished from other models by the standard full-width rear spoiler, revised front air dam and front fender vents. The SVR isn’t just about additional speed, though; it also gets revised suspension components, and can be had with available carbon fibre exterior accouterments, carbon ceramic brakes, and unique lightweight wheels. With select lightweight components, the F-Type SVR can weigh up to 45 kilos (100 lbs) less than the standard F-Type R. Inside, SVRs receive diamond-quilted leather upholstery, a steering wheel with suede inserts, and anodized metal paddles.

Other than the SVR, the F-Type carries over into 2017 without major change.

The standard F-Type coupe and roadster come powered by a 330-hp, 332 lb-ft of torque supercharged 3.0-litre V6 mated to either a six-speed manual or an eight-speed automatic driving the rear wheels. 0-100 km/h times range from a low of 5.3 seconds with the automatic to 5.7 seconds with the manual.

The S receives an uprated version of the engine, producing 380 hp and 339 lb-ft of torque, and is available optionally with all-wheel drive that enables up to 50 per cent of power to be routed to the front wheels. S all-wheel drive models come exclusively with the eight-speed automatic. The quickest S models hit 100 km/h in less than five seconds.

The former F-Type flagship, the R, serves up 550 hp and 502 lb-ft of torque from a 5.0-litre V8 engine. It comes standard with all-wheel drive and an eight-speed automatic transmission. The R’s 0-100 km/h time is 4.1 seconds.

Pricing for the 2017 F-Type kicks off at $78,500 for the standard rear-wheel-drive Coupe, with the roadster selling for $81,500. The all-new SVR starts at $142,000 for the Coupe, with the roadster selling for $145,000.

Thankfully, F-Type’s biggest issue might be just its battery.

This car is an Orgasmic Experience!
This car is an Orgasmic Experience!

Its an attention grabber for sure. Its an amazing ride. I've driven this back to back with a Lambo Giallardo Spider V10 with 560 HP and this car handles a million times better and its engine has a crackle and pop to match any supercar

Need I say more?

2014 Jaguar F-Type

by Godric on 02-09-2013
Nice ride
It's a nice car to ride.
If they shove in the manual and remove a few options and price it at around $64k, it will be a bargin compared to the Caymen...

I wonder how much lower the coupe will be?

For once the fit and finish of jaguar actually comes with performance. They should have launched the car with the manual option. I've been looking for something sophisticated with power...the 92k price tag is a little hard to swallow...I'll see what it looks like in person.
