The new Jaguar F-type debuts with world-first GoPro technology.
With its established praise-worthy image as the most dynamically capable, performance-focused Jaguar, the F-TYPE sports car continues to evolve, with a fresh look, state-of-the-art infotainment system and features world’s first ReRun app that combines vehicle data with Go Pro video to enhance the driving experience.
Since its launch in 2012, Jaguar’s all-aluminium two-seater has firmly established itself as the best-selling sports car in its segment in its home market and has won nearly 160 awards worldwide. The unrivalled balance of seductive design, stunning performance and outstanding dynamics has always made the F-TYPE unique, in a range that has evolved to include Coupé, Convertiblebody styles and an intelligent all-wheel drive system.
The new F-TYPE range offers even more driver-focused technology and a wider model range than ever, comprising 28 derivatives from the purist appeal of the rear-wheel drive, 340PS F-TYPE to the 320 kph, all-wheel drive F-TYPE SVR. Every F-TYPE now features the Touch Pro infotainment system. Its super-fast responses, intuitive tablet-style operation, intelligent navigation functions such as Share ETA and online services such as real-time traffic and live weather reports make every journey more rewarding and put a world of information at the driver’s fingertips.Joining the F-TYPE’s comprehensive suite of driver-focused assistance systems is a semi-automated park-assist function designed to make parallel parking in even the tightest of spaces quicker and easier.
True enthusiasts will be able to capture and share their driving experiences using the new ReRun app developed in collaboration with GoPro. In a world-first, ReRun combines real-time video from the driver’s GoPro with key vehicle performance data including speed, throttle position, gear selection, braking force and G-force. The high quality video – including unique ‘highlights’ sections – can be downloaded to the driver’s smartphone and shared on social media.
The F-TYPE’s clever design is stronger and more focused, with clearer visual range differentiation, thanks to model-specific front bumpers. Full LED headlights boost visual appeal and further help to improve driver safety and comfort. The addition of lightweight slim-line seats and new chrome and aluminium trim finishers heighten the driver-focused feel of the interior and perfectly complement the enhanced interior colour schemes including the Siena Tan leather option now available across the range. Other additions on the inside include a custom-designed Meridian Audio System, available in a 10 or 12 speaker configuration, mated to Jaguar’s TouchPro infotainment system.
To mark the introduction of the new F-TYPE range Jaguar has developed the exclusive 400 SPORT launch edition, which will go on sale worldwide but for one model year only. Power from the new 400PS version of the 3.0-litre supercharged V6 engine is complemented by an uprated chassis comprising the Super Performance braking system, Configurable Dynamics and 20-inch wheels with a unique Dark Satin Grey finish.
The new F-Type is sure to leave an indelible mark on sports car enthusiasts around the world, and with further driver-centric additions to an already well-equipped car, Jaguar has put its best foot forward in order to capture the 2-seater sports car segment. The launch details for India are yet to be revealed.
