Referred to as the spiritual successor to Jaguar’s legendary E-Type, the F-TYPE is a luxury two-door grand tourer designed by Ian Callum that was first introduced in 2013. Thus far the Whitley brand has offered the British GT car with a turbocharged 2.0L inline-four, a supercharged 3.0L V6, and a supercharged 5.0L V8, and after recently receiving a major facelift and visual overhaul, Jaguar has now further updated the F-TYPE, eliminating the forced induction four and six-cylinder variants in favor of V8-powered models across the board.
The base model F-TYPE P450 is now kicked along by a supercharged 5.0L V8 generating 444hp and 428ft-lbs of torque while the F-TYPE R maintains the same displacement but pumps out an additional 131hp. Affording a top speed of 177mph and firing off 0-60mph times in under 4.5-seconds, both models also sport larger brakes, 20” wheels, and active exhaust systems. Jaguar is also offering what it’s calling R-Dynamic (i.e. AWD) versions of the F-TYPE that offer even greater performance capabilites and come decked out in a special gloss black trim and ride on a unique wheel set. In addition to being produced in 11 regular color options, Jaguar’s Special Vehicle Operations division is also taking orders for bespoke-made 2022 F-TYPEs. Available for order now with deliveries scheduled to start next month, the 2022 Jaguar F-TYPE starts at $69,900.
