The Ultimate 2014 Jaguar F-Type Build: 30 Days Of F-Type

Follow Joel

Day six of our 30 Days of the 2014 Jaguar F-Type brings us to what we are calling The Ultimate F-Type Build. We went to the online Jaguar F-Type configurator and built two different vehicles that we feel would be the pinnacles of the model line--depending on your goals, of course.

The first F-Type we configured is the ultimate model for those seeking the minimalist enthusiast approach. We started with the $81,000 F-Type S with its supercharged V-6 engine rated at 380 horsepower and 339 pound-feet of torque. The reason we choose this setup for our minimalist approach is there's more than enough horsepower out of the supercharged six, and the engine puts less weight up front in the engine bay. It's also $11,000 cheaper than the V8 S model.

Sticking with the minimalist approach, we skipped most of the expensive options, such as the upgraded audio system, larger wheels, and pricey paint options. The only option we chose was the $3,400 package that includes Jaguar's performance brake system, sport leather steering wheel, configurable dynamic mode, performance pack, switchable active sport exhaust, performance seats, and black aluminum trim.

All-in, our minimalist 2014 Jaguar F-Type S rings in for a grand total of $84,400 and will take you from 0 to 60 in 4.8 seconds with a top speed of 171 mph.
