From the start of its production line, the Jaguar F-Type series had become an iconic vehicle for automobile enthusiasts and car collectors alike. Nevertheless, Jaguar has endeavored to continue the F-Type’s development, which is further demonstrated with their newly augmented 2018 F-Type lineup at the New York International Auto Show. The new lineup features a total of 24 variants, including a state-of-the-art turbocharged, 4 cylinder entry adaption as well as a limited 400 Sport special edition. Other unique specifications encompass boosted tech features and a restored front-end with full-LED headlights.
When it comes to the overall car performance, the new 400 Sport special edition, supercharged V-8 SVR, and the R-Dynamic trim level, are ranked as the highest in its lineup of the 2018 F-Type series. Out of these three superlative F-Tpe variants, the supercharged 380 hp R-Dynamic trim can reach not to 60 mph in a little over 5 seconds, the 575 hp F-Type SVR grasps 60 in just 3.5 seconds, and the 400 Sport (which is strictly exclusive to the 2018 model year) reaches 60 mph in under 5 seconds. The 400 Sport special edition in particular, takes centre stage in the lineup with its yellow and glistening-gray badging on the front & rear splitter, and with further badging located inside the interior.
The interior of these superlative F-Types, boasting chrome & aluminum trim, bear lightweight seats in Sport and Performance options. And introduces jaguar’s pad-oriented InControl Touch Pro advertorial system that provides weather reports, real-time traffic functions, and Fuel Finder: a feature that calculates the distance with the driver’s destination and the remaining fuel in the tank, then reports whether or not the fuel is sufficient for the targeted distance of travel. In addition, the new F-Type lineup offers assistance functions such as a semi-automated park-assist and an emergency braking system.
In order to visualize a more apparent differentiation from all the previous F-Type series’ releases, Jaguar designers constructed four model-distinctive front bumpers and air intakes. Where these air intakes were devised with greater apertures than the prior double “shark gill” intakes, and that incorporate a lozenge mesh style. The release for the 2018 F-Type lineup is set for later this year and will be having its starting prices range from $59,900 to $125,000.
