Jaguar F-Type Coupe on sale in Australia from $119,900

February 25, 2014

The stunning Jaguar F-Type Coupe will go on sale in Australia in July, joining the equally striking F-Type convertible. Three variants will be available, all of which are supercharged.

Jaguar-F-Type-Coupe

Like the convertible, the F-Type Coupe will come in three states of awesomeness. The entry-level F-Type with its 3.0-litre supercharged V6 producing 250kW and 450Nm is able to conquer 0-100km/h in 5.3 seconds.

Stepping up a notch, the F-Type S comes with a boosted version of the 3.0-litre supercharged V6 producing 280kW and 460Nm. It’s able to crack 0-100km/h in just 4.9 seconds.

Standing at the top of the range is the F-Type R. It comes with an almighty 5.0-litre supercharged V8 producing 404kW and 680Nm. It’s able to cover 0-100km/h in just 4.2 seconds and go on to a top speed of 300km/h.

This will be a cracking car when it arrives, and it will place itself in the market very competitively against rivals such as the Porsche 911, upcoming BMW M4, and Mercedes-Benz C 63 AMG Coupe.

Full prices are as follows (excluding on-road costs):

Jaguar F-Type Coupe – $119,900
