Originally developed under the project code “X152,” the Jaguar F-Type is a sporty and sophisticated two-door, two-seater model that first entered production in 2013. Since its initial launch, the British marque has introduced a handful of additional F-Type models and variants, though Jaguar has now pulled the cover off the latest iteration of the popular coupe with the revised-for-2021 F-Type. Offered as a convertible or hardtop, the newly-unveiled model largely retains the outgoing model’s shape and silhouette, though a myriad of minor changes has been implemented, both inside and out.
Updates to the 2021 model include new clamshell hood and vents, pixel LED headlights and “chicane” taillights, new fender vents, a revised bumper with model-specific graphics, a bigger grill with new mesh inserts, and a set of ten-arm 20” rims. Inside the F-Type’s already luxurious interior, the 2021 version has been given a reconfigurable 12.3” TFT instrument cluster supplemented via a standard 10” touch-screen, a premium Meridian audio system, and new race-inspired lightweight “slimline” seats with monogram stitching. Underneath the hood, Jag is giving customers the choice between a turbocharged 300-horsepower four-cylinder engine, a blown 380hp V6, and the top-shelf 575hp V8 mill for the R-spec — all of which are wrapped in an improved chassis and married to a quick-shift transmission derived from the Jaguar XE SV Project 8. Pricing starts at $70,250 for the base model.
