R is intensity. It provides more and delivers the ultimate expression of the
F-TYPE: the most powerful, the most dynamically capable, the most thrilling.
The F-TYPE R is the sports car at its most honed, sensuous and exciting.
The beating heart of the F-TYPE is supercharged. Power is delivered by a range of three highly advanced engines: 3.0L V6 340 hp, 3.0L V6 380 hp, 5.0L V8 495 hp and 5.0L V8 550 hp. Each features a Roots-type twin-vortex supercharger, mounted in the "V" of the engine to maintain its compact dimensions. Jaguar uses supercharged induction technology, which provides linear power delivery and high levels of torque at all engine speeds, minimizing the gap between the driver’s demand and the engine’s response.
The F-TYPE roars right from its heart. Its Sport Exhaust growls powerfully from start-up, building to a race-car inspired crescendo. An Active Sport Exhaust – standard on the F-TYPE S and V8 S, and optional on the F-TYPE – uses active bypass valves to allow exhaust gases to exit more directly for a deep, dramatic sound. A Switchable Active Exhaust, for manual control of the system, is standard on the R model and available on the F-TYPE, S and V8 S models.
The F-TYPE uses a "QuickShift" ZF® automatic transmission that is both lightning-fast and superbly refined. Using eight closely spaced gears, the transmission keeps the engine in its most effective operating range to deliver optimum power and torque at all speeds. A selectable Dynamic Mode adds adrenaline to your drive by modifying the throttle response and shift programming to further emphasize the car’s sporting nature.4DRIVING DYNAMICS
The F-TYPE has a lightweight aluminum body structure with high torsional rigidity, making it the ideal platform for a sports car. This strong, rigid structure provides an inherently stable platform for precise, agile handling, and is the perfect complement to the high-performance engine range. The result is exceptional power-to-weight and torque-to-weight ratios – the real-world measures of sports-car performance.SAFETY & SECURITY
Balanced and capable, the F-TYPE has exceptional handling based on its inherent design. Its center of gravity is as low as possible. Its even weight distribution has been meticulously engineered, right down to the location of the battery and windshield-washer reservoir at the rear.
At one with the car and the road – you and the F-TYPE connect from the moment you press the start button and the engine roars to life. The driver-focused interior combines intuitive technologies and functional ergonomics with a unique sporting style.INTERIOR
