Jaguar F-Type

The 2014 Jaguar F-Type has been taken for a drive from one car enthusiast and automotive specialist and he has offered some information on his experience at the wheels of a supercar. We can all agree that Jaguar has not introduced a proper new sports car in 50 year and now customers know it as a purveyor of wood- and hide-lined luxury sedans. It is a bit strange that the carmaker has decided to see the F-Type in China, a developing market, as the carmaker did not sell cars here for quite a long time.

The model has a pair of vertically oriented bi-xenon headlamps and also a large, rectangular grille opening with softened corners bookended by a set of aggressive air intakes. It also has classic long-hood short rear deck proportions. The side mirrors are small and graceful, propped up on stanchions with integrated turn signal repeaters. The doors have a lot of surface interest thanks to their form and a rising character line that sets the stage for the swollen rear fenders. When a recessed button is pushed, hidden door handles pop out, but they do not retract and lock the doors when you push the button again.

On the inside it has a three-spoke wheel with a small airbag and simpler button array than on other Jaguars. The new F-Type is available with both heat and a grippy faux suede finish as well. To transfer the output to the wheels, the engineers have offered a ZF 8-speed automatic transmission. Under the hood, the model has a 3.0-liter V6 model capable of generating 340 horsepower and 332 lb. ft. of torque. The starting price has been established at $69.000. This output mentioned enables the car to accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in 5.1 seconds and to reach a top speed of 161 mph. these figures indicate that the model is faster than the Porsche Boxster and its 265 horsepower capable of accelerating from 0 to 60 mph in 5.5 seconds.
