Jaguar's all-new F-Type roadster has made its official debut at last, unveiled at this week's Paris Motor Show.

The new convertible's international arrival follows months of teasers, spy photos and, in the past week, a flood of leaked press shots.

If you listen to Jaguar, the F-Type heralds a new dawn for the British marque, bringing new engines, a new platform, and best-in-class dynamics.

It will take a full road-test to confirm Jaguar's claims, but the new cat's factory figures hold plenty of promise.

Three versions of the new roadster will be offered, opening with the basic F-Type, graduating to the F-Type S and the range-topping V8 S.

 

Engines And Features

Power in the F-Type and F-Type S grades is delivered by the same brand-new supercharged 3.0 litre V6, producing 250kW in the base model and 280kW in the S.

The entry F-Type promises a 0-100km/h time of 5.1 seconds, while the up-spec F-Type S cuts that time to a blistering 4.8 seconds.

Jag claims a top speed of 260km/h in the base model, and 275km/h in the S.

Moving up to the supercharged 5.0 litre V8, power is rated at a very hefty 365kW and 625Nm, offering the quickest 0-100km/h time of 4.2 seconds. Top speed, appropriately, is a big 300km/h.

All three versions are equipped with an eight-speed Quickshift automatic transmission, with no manual on offer.

Underneath, you'll find aluminium double wishbones at both ends, and a super-fast steering rack.

S models also get an 'Active Exhaust' and the option of a 'Configurable Dynamics program that adds a lap timer and a G-meter display.

The new Jag benefits from an aluminium chassis, with claimed rigidity gains 30 percent higher over other Jag models.

The F-Type offers a driver-focused cabin - an arrangement that Jaguar calls "1+1" - setting the pilot's seat apart from the passenger pew with a broad centre console and a large (and likely very necessary) hand grip.

"The Jaguar engineering team focused on delivering greater dynamic driving reward than ever before," Jaguar's Ian Hoban said.

"To make that a reality, every engineer has had very tough targets to hit: every one of those targets has been met and, in many cases, exceeded, making the F-TYPE a car that delivers precisely the key sporting attributes that we intended.”

Watch for TMR's review in the coming year.
