Rated at 550 horsepower (55 horsepower more than the F-Type V8 S convertible) in its most potent form, called, appropriately, the F-Type R, the new coupe should offer up almost supercar-like performance. Thanks to its extra horsepower, Jaguar claims the F-Type R variant will hit 60 mph in just 4.0 seconds and carry on to a limited top speed of 186 mph.
The other two engines are the same as found in the convertible, with the base F-Type Coupe scoring 340 horsepower from its 3.0-liter supercharged V-6, and the F-Type S Coupe rated at 380 horsepower. They’re good for 5.1 and 4.8-second runs to 60 mph, respectively, and top speeds of 161 mph and 171 mph.
In terms of styling, the look is very much like that of the F-Type convertible we’ve come to know and rather seriously enjoy. According to director of design at Jaguar, Ian Callum, the F-Type Coupe’s look is reflective of the car’s performance mission.
“In F-Type Coupe, I believe we’ve got it right,” he said.
We can’t help but agree.
