The stunning and the most performance-oriented production Jaguar ever, the F-Type Coupe was presented to the public for the very first time back at the 2013 Los Angeles Motor Show. The model’s Indian debut however, only got underway at the recently concluded Auto Expo 2014. Today, Jaguar has officially launched the F-Type Coupe in the Indian market with prices starting at Rs 1.21 crore for the base version and Rs 1.82 crore for the range-topping F-Type Coupe V8 R (Both prices are ex-showroom, India).
Visually, the F-Type Coupe is essentially the same as the F-Type Convertible that is already on sale in India, with the exception of the fixed roof. On the road however, the F-Type Coupe is said to be sharper to drive than its convertible sibling with its more rigid body shell. The roof features an optional tinted glass construction that appears to stretch all the way to the end of the rear windscreen and also accentuates the gorgeous ‘flowing’ side profile and the strong rear haunches.
The all-aluminium F-Type Coupe is being offered in a total of three trim levels - the F-Type, the F-Type S and the range-topping F-Type R. The top-of-the line F-Type R is being powered by a 5.0-litre supercharged V8 engine producing 550PS of max power and 680Nm of peak torque. Jaguar is claiming a 0 to 100 kmph time of 4 seconds and an electronically limited top speed of 300 kmph. The less powerful F-Type S and the base F-Type are powered by a 3.0-litre V6 supercharged petrol engine that is rated at 380PS/460Nm and 340PS/450Nm respectively.
Following is the list of all the variants and the corresponding prices of the 2014 Jaguar F-Type Coupe.
- 2014 Jaguar F-Type 3.0 S/C Coupe 340PS - Rs 1.21 crore.
