Jaguar has announced the 2022 F-Type will have added power and more standard features.
All models are powered by a 5.0 supercharged V8 engine with power outputs ranging from the R-Dynamic P450 with 331kW, through to the F-Type R with 423kW. They feature a Switchable Active Sports Exhaust system with quad outboard mounted exhaust pipes.
They drive through an eight-speed Quickshift automatic with full manual control using either the SportShift gear selector or the gearshift paddles
Exclusively rear-wheel drive, the new 331kW P450, 5.0-litre supercharged V8 with maximum torque of 580Nm from 2,500rpm. It has an electronic active rear differential to optimise traction and has a zero to 100 km/h time of 4.6 seconds and a maximum speed of 285km/h.
The new R-Dynamic P450 Coupé and Convertible is accentuated by the R-Dynamic Pack and 20-inch, six split-spoke wheels with gloss dark grey and contrast diamond turned finish.
