2014 Jaguar F-Type – Any doubt we can about the claim had that 2014 Jaguar F-type “Jaguar’s first sports car in 50 years” is so out of the way, and the company expects that about 90% of the F-type buyers will new for the Jaguar brand has been confirmed. This particular couple, one of whom is an American, is the property of all manner of BMW, Mercedes-Benze and Porsches over the past two decades, although the only British car they had a 1962 Rolls-Royce Silver cloud. We’d driven their Mercedes CLS diesel from Paris, and it’s sitting in the crunchy French gravel of their ride as we spoke. In other words, this is exactly the kind that Jaguar hopes to attract customers away from the German brands with the 2014 Jaguar F-Type. If my iPhone photo investigate them further, they stated that the new roadster remind them of the E-type, which they described as “the most beautiful car ever made.”
Back in the courtyard of the Muga Beloso Alma Hotel in Pamplona, ??a city in the northeast of Spain who you may remember as the place where Ernest Hemingway conceded fully his passion for bull-fighting, the Jaguar display the new 2014 Jaguar F-type with his three single-letter ancestors, the C-type, D-type and E-type. A brave move, you see, to put one’s 2014 car at just three of the most sensuous car forms of Jaguar, but also of the entire post-war era. We say, if you have legacy swing it. After all, the vintage trio, only the E-Type was a real road going car, and there is no denying that the F-type oozes its own flavor of the 21st century sex appeal. We first designed the F-Type’s direction in the C-X16 concept at the 2011 Frankfurt Motor Show.
Only through 2014 Jaguar Jaguar F-type design even Mercedes-Benz, BMW, Audi and Porsche buyers to look at a Jaguar showroom. Porsche, you ask? Indeed, Jaguar has a bit of a car manufacturer crush on Porsche and, like every sports car manufacturer in the world, will be very flattered by any comparisons to the products of Zuffenhausen. To drive home the point, Jaguar representatives constantly reminds us that every version of the F-type will cost about 25% less than similar Porsche 911 models. If you invite comparisons with Porsche, better you have the hardware to back up your claims, and Jaguar have the right kind of numbers on the F-type spec sheet. $ 69,895 F-Type gets a 340-hp version of Jaguar’s own supercharged, 3.0-liter V-6 engine, while the $ 81.895 F-Type S bumps the V-6 380 hp. $ 92,895 F-type V8 S boasts 495 hp. Jaguar called 0-to-60-mph time of 5.1 seconds, 4.8 seconds and 4.2 seconds, respectively, for the three models. There is a similar progression in the electronically limited top speed: even the base model is good for 161 mph, the S 171 mph and top dog 186 mph. All models are coupled to ZF’s eight-speed automatic gearbox, Jaguar called Quickshift. You may be asked’s Jaguar for lack of a manual transmission, but then again, coming Porsche 911 GT3 none, not. And if Jaguar was present, hardly anyone would buy it. Still, it’s always sad to see a sports car model line with no clutch in sight.
Apart from the obvious power source development, the F-type program “requires a fundamental shift in Jaguar DNA,” said Ian Hoban, who worked with the automaker for 23 years and now serves as a vehicle line director for all its products. The catchphrase he and his team use, “Coupled feel,” describe their efforts to penetrate the F-type with an “immediate, accurate and proportionate response to driver input.” At the end, the F-type send 10% faster than any other Jaguar, the lightest and toughest body structure of any Jaguar, and an aggressively tuned version of Jaguar’s Adaptive Dynamics damping. The V6 S is equipped with a mechanical limited-slip differential, while the V8 S gets a version that uses an electronically controlled multi-clutch torque transmitted to the rear wheel with the most grip. Like the XJ and XK, the F-type has a bonded and riveted aluminum body structure wrapped in aluminum body panels. The structure, which consists of 141 aluminum printouts, 18 high-pressure die casting, and 24 extrusions, is 77 pounds lighter than a comparable steel structure. Jaguar engineers are particularly proud of the single bump the clamshell hood because of the sharp fold they were able to create the design team remains.
2014 Jaguar F-Type Redesign
RClimb behind the wheel of the F-type, and there is definitely an immediate feeling of being in a different kind of Jaguar. You sit almost an inch lower than in Jaguar’s previous blitsigste motor, the XKR-S coupe. The interior is modern and luxurious, but not affected, with a row of a substantial rocker switches and a great twist dials for climate control, a nice sewn grab handle that the demarcation of the driver’s area of ??the passenger, A chunky gearshift lever which is the opposite of the fussy old Jaguar J-gate shifter, and a small and simple steering wheel. S models, the Dynamic button, shift paddles, and the start button accents in orange. Fit and finish is very good. A set of vents at the top of the center stack increases when the climate control system dictates necessary and otherwise disappear into the dash. Jaguar prepares you always have at least one parlor trick for tents these days, it seems. Our test car is equipped with an optional fully power-adjustable seats, but base seats have manual and aft movement to save weight. Jaguar as something similar to Mercedes-Benz’s Airscarf hot air blowing on your neck, but rejected it because of the packaging concern.

The 2014 Jaguar F-type steering is relatively light yet very precise, with a good feeling, even though it is not as hyper-communication than, say, the Porsche Boxster. At the Circuito de Navarra, a race track in the beautiful landscape in the foothills south of Pamplona, ??was it easy to find a 2014 Jaguar F-Type S to set up in tight corners, and the brakes, with excellent pedal modulation and pressure, ready for track duty. The gearbox reacted quickly slaps the shift paddles, especially when multiple downshifts needed. Stability control was not too intrusive during a few short laps of the track with a UK driving instructor named Chris riding shotgun. Chris did not offer to let us ride with stability off, but the F-type feel like would willingly turn as he had. The circumference of the wheels and the brake rotors do when you move through the F-Type model hierarchy.
The F-Type 18-inch wheels and 14-inch rotors, the 2014 Jaguar F-Type S gets 19-inch wheels and 15-inch rotors, and the 2014 Jaguar F-type V8 S 20-inch wheels and 15-inch front, 14.8-inch rear rotors, the largest collection of brakes Jaguar ever fitted as standard to a production car. Both the V6 models can be spec’d with bigger shoes to the usual portfolio of stylish Jaguar wheels.
