2018 Jaguar F-TYPE Coupe – Sports Car Specifications & Price

Overview
Designed as a smaller, sportier and less-expensive offering than the Jaguar XK grand tourer, the F-Type is 3.8 inches longer than Porsche’s 718 Cayman but 0.8 inches shorter than the 911. The platform and much of the body are made of aluminum, helping to keep weight in the 3500-3700 pound range depending on model.

Styled under the watch of Jaguar Design Director Ian Callum, whose previous credits include the Aston Martin DB7 and Vanquish, the F-Type features an athletic stance and an oversized front grille that leans forward slightly to convey a sense of motion even when the car is stationary. Around back is a dramatically sloping roofline that contrasts handsomely with the F-Type’s muscular, upswept rear haunches. Providing a sense of grace from without and a feeling of openness from within is a B-pillarless design, an elegant touch typically seen only on larger coupes like the Mercedes CL-Class.

Aside from aggressive front air intakes and a set of de rigueur side vents, the F-Type’s sheetmetal is clean and simple, with the visual highlights being two “heartlines” that define the front fenders and the muscular rear haunches. Hidden in the rear deck is a spoiler that automatically rises at 70 mph to improve high-speed stability.

Occupant Safety
The F-type comes standard with dual front, side and side-curtain airbags in addition to traction and stability control systems.
Key Competitors
The F-Type can be compared to a wide variety of roadsters depending on engine selection. Six-cylinder F-Types can be cross-shopped against the Porsche 718 Cayman, Chevrolet Corvette and BMW M4. The F-Type SVR is more closely aligned with the Porsche 911 and the Audi R8.
