Jaguar F-Type Launched

Prices for the Jaguar F-Type S variant is Rs 1.37 crore and the range topping F-Type V8S will sell for Rs 1.61 Crore (ex-showroom Mumbai, pre- Octroi)

It is certainly more than just another addition to Jaguar’s impressive line of sports cars and GT models. As the British marquees only open top two-seater sports car ever made since the iconic E-Type, the F-Type represents a return to the company’s heartland, and it is now finally here in India.

Only two of its three variants selling internationally will be available in India, the F-Type S and F-Type V8S. They are powered by Jaguar’s new 3.0-litre V6 supercharged petrol engine with 380PS on tap, and its 5.0-litre V8 supercharged petrol that produces a massive 495PS.

The range-topping F-Type V8S will reach 100 km/h in 4.3 seconds and has a top speed of 300 km/h. The lower spec V6 F-Type S version will take 4.9 seconds to cover the same distance and tops out at 275 km/h.

Commenting on the launch of the F-Type, Rohit Suri, Vice President, Jaguar & Land Rover India, said, “The Jaguar F-Type is our all-new, two seater sports car and we believe it will be a game changer for the Indian sports car market. With its stunning design and driver focused engineering, this car will further enhance the appeal of our brand and I am confident that it will arouse senses and stir emotions like no other car in India.”Priced at Rs 1.37 crore (ex-showroom Mumbai, pre-Octroi) for the V6 Type S model and Rs 1.61 crore (ex-showroom Mumbai, pre-Octroi) for the range topping F-Type V8S, the exotic two-seater convertible cannot be even remotely associated with the term affordable, but for the few who can afford such luxury, the F-Type is truly something out of the ordinary (Read : Jaguar F-Type feature).

Jaguar India in the meanwhile continues to sell other vehicles in its portfolio in decent numbers, registering a growth of 68% in the first quarter of this fiscal year. The locally assembled Jaguar XF 2.2 litre diesel launched earlier this year has been helpful in this regard.
