Jaguar F-Type Facelift - Perfection Restyled
|   Thursday, February 23, 2017
Jaguar officially unveiled the F-Type facelift model. The car is offered in coupe and cabrio version. The list of changes includes new aesthetic details and improved technology.
Jaguar F-Type was first launched in 2012. Because four years since then passed, the British proposed a facelift for the car already shipped in two bodywork styles, coupe and convertible.

The aesthetic changes are minor, because the F-Type was already one of the most attractive coupes of the current era.
The main differences appear at the optical blocks level which now have a new LED signature, but also full LED lights.

A lot of chrome inserts have appeared, but also new bodywork colors: Indus Silver, Santorini Black, and Yulong White. The front spoiler was also modified, especially on the R top version. The taillights have been slightly redesigned with lamps on a black background.

The most important change to the interior is installing new seats, much slimmer, built on a magnesium alloy structure. That helps the British reduce the total weight by 8 kg. In addition, the seats now offer a lowered driving position and can slide 50 mm furthest rearward.

The list of modifications includes a number of aluminum finishes, but also a new multimedia system. The Touch Pro system is now reflected on an 8-inch screen. Because we are speaking about technology, it should be noted that the F-Type can be ordered with an automatic parking assistant.

In premiere, the ReRun application that connects a GoPro video camera with the multimedia system and smartphone is introduced . This application allows filming an action video on the track, for example. This video is filled with diverse information about speed, position of the accelerator or brake pedal but also the G forces. The video can be watched on smartphones and later distributed on social networks.

All these changes relate to the F-TYPE Coupe and Convertible (3.0 V6 Supercharged, 340 hp) F-TYPE R Coupe and Convertible (5.0 V8 Supercharged 550 hp) and F-TYPE SVR Coupe and Convertible (5.0 V8 Supercharged 575 hp).

Moreover, these models are joined by a few new additions - the F-TYPE 400 Sport Coupe and Convertible available with the 3.0 V6 Supercharged 400 hp in versions with rear wheel drive or AWD, but also the F-TYPE R-Dynamic Coupe and Convertible, which come with the 3.0 V6 Supercharged versions of 340 hp or 380 hp, the latter being available with all-wheel drive.

The special edition F-Type 400 Sport has the same V6 engine but with 400 horsepower. It benefits from a Super Performance braking system (380 mm front disc and 376 mm rear, black stirrups), a Configurable Dynamics system (which can customize the behavior of acceleration, braking, suspension and steering).
Aesthetic customization items include 20-inch wheels, 400 Sport emblems and custom thresholds. The F-Type 400 Sport version can be ordered in a coupe or convertible variant, rear-wheel drive or AWD.

The diversity of bodyworks (Coupe and Convertible), the motorizations (V6 engine with 340, 380 or 400 hp and V8 engine with 550 or 575 hp), transmission (manual or automatic) and traction (RWD or AWD), raises the number of models to 28 different versions! It now seems that the Jaguar F-TYPE will fight its rival Porsche 911 on equal footing given the diversity of models that are offered.
