Jaguar F-Type Makes Australian Debut
Jaguar’s new F-TYPE; the first full-blooded Jaguar sports car to be launched for more than 50 years, made its Australian debut in Sydney this week.

“Contemporary, evocative and progressive, the F-TYPE has been engineered to deliver pure dynamic driving reward and stunning performance,” said Mark Eedle, Jaguar Australia’s Brand Manager.

“Jaguar is a founder 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,” said Adrian Hallmark, Global Brand Director.

ALL YOU NEED TO KNOW

The F-TYPE is an all-new, two-seater, Jaguar sports car

Front-engined and rear-wheel drive, the F-TYPE is engineered to deliver pure dynamic driving reward and stunning performance

Visually, the F-TYPE’s exterior demonstrates a new sports car design language for Jaguar, with cleaner lines delivered through the discreet use of technology such as deployable spoiler and door handles

The F-TYPE’s interior features a driver-focused philosophy, with engaging controls encased in dramatic architecture. Unique technical grains tailor the trim materials, further differentiating the dual-cockpit cabin

The F-TYPE is constructed around the fourth generation of Jaguar’s acclaimed lightweight aluminium architecture using industry-first technology

Torsional and lateral stiffness have been prioritised to maximise handling agility. Around that rigid aluminium structure, every system – steering, brakes, powertrain – has been optimised for immediacy of response to driver inputs

All-aluminium double wishbone front and rear suspension systems provide precise body control, with adaptive damping adding a further layer of dynamic capability
