Representing a return to Jaguar's sports car roots, the new F-Type is a two-seater convertible with an aluminum structure. It is a light car with ideal weight distribution. The styling features LED taillights and tapered headlights. There are two character lines that Jaguar is calling bloodlines.
Three engine options are offered: a supercharged 3.0-liter V-6 rated at 340 horsepower and 332 pound-feet of torque resides in the base car. The S model is rated at 380 horsepower and 339 pound-feet of torque while the range topping supercharged 5.0-liter V8 S is rated at 495 horsepower and 460 pound-feet of torque. All models get an eight-speed "Quickshift" automatic transmission with paddle shifters.
