Jaguar F Type
The Jaguar F-Type is a two-seat sports car, based on a shortened platform of the XK convertible, produced by Jaguar Cars from 2013. The F-Type was developed under the project code “X152”. A similarly sized concept car, the C-X16, was shown at the Frankfurt Motor Show in September 2011. The car was launched initially as a soft-top convertible, with a coupe version expected to be launched in 2014. The F-Type uses an all-aluminium chassis, sound and vibration insulation is provided by the addition of a special underbody tray and engine mounts, and a double bulkhead between the engine bay and passenger compartment. The entry-level F-Type uses Jaguar’s new 3.0-litre V6 supercharged petrol engine, good for 340 PS (250 kW; 340 hp), 0 to 60 mph (0 to 97 km/h) in 5.1 seconds, and a top speed of 161 mph (259 km/h). In the middle comes the F-Type S, with the same engine tuned for 380 PS (280 kW; 370 hp), a top speed of 171 mph (275 km/h), and 0 to 60 mph in 4.8 seconds.
