Jaguar F-Type on sale in Australia in August from $139,000

Jaguar Australia has announced pricing for the sexy new Jaguar F-Type. The new sports car will be available in three trim levels, including the F-Type, the F-Type S, and the mighty F-Type V8 S.

Jaguar F-Type

Inspired by classic Jags such as the E-Type, the F-Type is Jaguar’s all-new halo sports car, set to take on the likes of the Porsche 911. The car has so far been highly praised all around the world and it has already picked up a few awards, with its striking design, powerful range of supercharged engines, and great driving dynamics.

With three variants to hit the showrooms, including the entry-level with its 250kW supercharged V6, to the S with 280kW, to the flagship 364kW V8 S with its 5.0-litre supercharged V8, the car is sure to be very popular Down Under. Mark Eedle, Jaguar Australia’s brand manager, recently spoke about the model, saying,

“Contemporary, evocative and progressive, the F-Type has been engineered to deliver pure dynamic driving reward and stunning performance.”

All variants come with stop-start technology to aid fuel economy (figures not yet confirmed).

The base model is capable of 0-100km/h in 5.3 seconds, followed by just 4.9 seconds for the S, and 4.3 seconds for the V8 S.
