Piecha Design creates styling kit for Jaguar F-Type R Coupe

Tuning house Piecha Design has released its latest cosmetic kit for the Jaguar F-Type R Coupe, boosting the already high sexual appeal of the stunning sports car.

The German firm recently unveiled its special tweaks for the V6 Coupe and V8 Convertible models, and has now turned its attention to the flagship of the range, the F-Type R Coupe.

Mods to the bodywork include an updated front bumper and side skirts, both with aero tweaks and made from lacquered carbon fiber.

At the back there’s an all-new carbon fiber spoiler, a new diffuser with two extra stabilisers, and Piecha has also thrown out Jaguar’s stock exhaust in favour of its own system with quad pipes for even more noise… Funny that, we hadn’t heard anyone complaining about a lack of noise from the F-Type. But you can’t have too much of a good thing, right?

One of the few things left unchanged is the roaring 5.0-litre supercharged V8, which produces 404kW/680Nm in factory form, scarily throwing all its power to the rear wheels. The company has installed a new coilover suspension system though which allows the ride height to be adjusted by 10-30mm.

But, Piecha being the obsessive-compulsive type, it also installed a new set of 21-inch glossy silver alloys, wrapped in 255/30 front and 295/25 rear Yokohama tyres to get even more of that power onto the road.
