The Jaguar F-Type is a two-door, two-seater, sports car based on a shortened platform of the XK Convertible. The convertible was launched at the 2012 Paris Motor Show and went into production in 2013. The F-Type is the spiritual successor to the famous E-Type and uses an all-aluminium chassis, assembled with flush rivets and glue. Sound and vibration insulation is provided by the addition of a special underbody tray and engine mounts, and a double bulkhead between the engine bay and passenger compartment. The convertible roof is an electrically operated retractable fabric hood. Jaguar says by eschewing metal it can keep the car’s centre of gravity low, while a Thinsulate layer means thermal and sound insulation is akin to a sold roof.
At launch the F-Type was offered with three engine variants, two versions of the supercharged 3.0 litre with 335bhp and 375bhp in ‘S’ specification. The range topping V8 S boasted 488 bhp. This impressive power plant propelled the V8 S from 0-62 mph in just 4.2 seconds and on to a top speed of 186 mph.
