The new and improved Jaguar F-type is now in Singapore. What's the deal?
The Jaguar F-type has been given a makeover. Here's what to expect.
As far as sports cars go, the Jaguar F-type is widely regarded as one of the most popular two-seaters around. The F-type has now undergone an extensive revamp, and the new and improved version is now available in Singapore.
What’s new, you may ask? For one, the car now sports a redesigned exterior with a larger grille, slimmer headlights and a new clamshell bonnet.
It has also been given slender rear lights that combine an unmistakable LED chicane signature, inspired by the Jaguar I-PACE all-electric Performance SUV, with subtle monogram pattern detailing and a fine “pinstripe” beneath.
While the interior remains mostly similar to the pre-facelift model, it’s been given a host of tech upgrades. There’s a new 12.3-inch Interactive Driver Display which offers drivers a choice of different display modes, including full map mode.
Interior details include monogram stitch patterns in the seats and door trims, Jaguar Leaper motifs in the headrests, and subtle Jaguar Est.1935 markings on the centre console finisher, glovebox release button surround, and seatbelt guides.
Only two powertrain options are being offered by Jaguar Singapore – the turbocharged two-litre, four-cylinder engine and the supercharged five-litre V8, which is available on an indent basis.
The former produces 300 hp, with a sprint time of 5.7 seconds and top speed of 250 km/h. The latter is available in two performance levels – 450 hp and 575 hp for the F-Type R.
The 450 hp version is offered with a choice of all-wheel drive or rear-wheel drive. Both versions can accelerate from 0-100km/h in just 4.6 seconds, with a maximum speed of 285 km/h.
The F-Type R delivers exceptional performance with a sprint time of just 3.7 seconds, while maximum speed is an electronically-limited 300 km/h.
If you’ve had your sights on the F-Type for some time now, prices start from S$342,999. There’s also the First Edition which will set you back by S$377,999. This carries refinements such as the Exterior Design Pack in contemporary Dorchester Grey and five-spoke, 20-inch wheels in Gloss Technical Grey with contrast Diamond-Turned finish, complementing the choice of Santorini Black, Eiger Grey or Fuji White paint.
