F-TYPE COUPE: FASTER, STIFFER, SHARPER

The all-aluminum F-TYPE Coupe – the most dynamically capable, performance-focused sports car that Jaguar has ever produced – is available in three versions: F-TYPE R, F-TYPE S and the F-TYPE.

The all-aluminum F-TYPE Coupe – the most dynamically capable, performance-focused sports car that Jaguar has ever produced – is available in three versions:
F-TYPE R, F-TYPE S and the F-TYPE.

The range-topping F-TYPE R Coupe is powered by Jaguar’s 5.0-liter supercharged V8 engine in 550 HP/680Nm tune, delivering acceleration to 60 mph in 4.0-seconds, and a top speed of 186 mph (electronically limited).

The F-TYPE S Coupe and F-TYPE Coupe are powered by Jaguar’s 3.0-liter V6 supercharged engines in 380 HP/460Nm and 340 HP/450Nm forms respectively, giving 0-60 mph in 4.8/5.1-seconds and top speeds of 171/161 mph.

The F-TYPE Coupe embodies the uncompromised design vision of the stunning Jaguar C-X16 concept sports coupe that debuted at the 2011 Frankfurt Motor Show, its dramatic cabin-rearward stance being defined by three heartlines. The first two heartlines – shared with F-TYPE Convertible – form the muscular front and rear wings, the third heartline being the sweeping Coupe roof profile which provides an unbroken silhouette while emphasising the visual drama of the tapered cabin sitting between powerful rear haunches.

F-TYPE R and F-TYPE S Coupe models also have the option of Carbon Ceramic Matrix (CCM) brakes which offer absolute consistency of performance and excellent fade resistance, as well as a total unsprung-weight saving of 21kg.

Every F-TYPE Coupe model utilises Jaguar’s eight-speed close-ratio QuickShift transmission which is optimized for sporting performance, with full manual sequential control from the central SportShift selector or steering wheel-mounted paddles. 


“The F-TYPE Coupe provides its driver with a unique sports car experience. It combines seductive design with cutting-edge technology and performance which is truly breathtaking. Engaging, precise, intuitive and alive – it is the definitive sports Coupe.”
Phil Popham, Group Marketing Director, Jaguar Land Rover 

Visual appeal is fundamental to Jaguar and, as such, the F-TYPE Coupe is immediately recognizable, building on the design of the stunning C-X16 concept sports Coupe and the F-TYPE Convertible – winner of the 2013 ‘World Car Design of the Year’ award.

“Creating a sports Coupe is the purest of design tasks, and also the most challenging; get it right and aesthetically the result will be as dynamic as the car should be rewarding to drive. In F-TYPE Coupe, I believe we’ve got it right.

The purity of the C-X16 concept has been retained without compromise; the F-TYPE Coupe’s long bonnet, low roofline and tapering cabin inspire me every time I see it.”

Ian Callum, Director of Design, Jaguar


F-TYPE R

The F-TYPE R represents the pinnacle of the F-TYPE range. Powered by Jaguar’s 5.0-liter supercharged V8 all-aluminum engine in 550 HP and 680Nm form, the F-TYPE R Coupe achieves headline figures of 0-60 mph in 4.0-seconds with an electronically limited top speed of 186 mph, 50-75 mph taking a mere 2.4-seconds. CO2 emissions are 259g/km.
