​Jaguar Refreshes the F-Type for 2018

The iconic Jaguar F-type continues to evolve, with a fresh new look and state-of-the-art technology!

History

​The F-Type, a two-door, two seater, all-aluminium sports car, was launched in 2012, based on a compressed platform of the XK convertible and as the successor to the highly-acclaimed E-Type.

Despite only being on the market for 5 years, the Jaguar F-Type has already established itself as a world class sports car by winning nearly 160 awards worldwide and becoming the best-selling vehicle in the sportscar in the British market.

Technology

Jaguar have continued to pushed the boundaries of technology, by offering driver-focused refresh on the F-type, making every journey even more enjoyable.

All F-Types now include a state-of-the-art Touch Pro infotainment system. The tablet-style design allows easy navigation, with online services such as live weather and real time traffic reports and intelligent functions such as Share ETA – giving you a plethora of information only a finger-tip away.

Thrill seekers, will be able to relive their driving experiences with the introduction of the ReRun app developed in association with Go-Pro. The app combines real-time video straight from the GoPro and downloads performance data including speed, throttle position, gear selection, braking force and g foce. You can download the high-quality video to your smartphone and share it across social media – if you fancy showing it off to your friends.

The best driver-focused assistance, is the F-Types semi-automated park-assist function. The feature is designed to take the stress out of parallel parking, by making even the tightest of spaces hassle free – perfect for all city centre drivers. The car’s ultrasonic parking sensors measure a spaces length and analyses the suitability. If suitable, driver has to press a button, manoeuvre into reverse and control the throttle and the breaks and let the system take care of the steering.

The inside hasn’t been forgotten, with the addition of new slimmer seats saving approximately 8kg in weight! A new chrome and aluminium finishers have been added to complement the interior colour schemes, making the F-Type’s interior feel even more luxurious than ever!
