Jaguar has confirmed that its new manual-equipped F-Type models will hit Australia in July, kicking off with a $119,470 price tag.
Those row-your-own offerings won’t be the first updated F-Types off the boat, however, with a number of updated auto-equipped models due in April.
Among those updates will be the addition of all-wheel-drive, which will be offered with April-delivered versions of the Coupe and Convertible from $172,470.
Jaguar’s Switchable Active Sports Exhaust will also join the raft of updates due in April, while V6 S and R models have been upgraded to include a reversing camera and front parking sensors as standard kit.
V6 variants can now also be had with the Torque Vectoring By Braking system that was previously only available with R models.
Also joining the Australian range is the 404kW ‘R’ version of the Convertible range, previously headlined by the now retired 364kW ‘V8 S’.
The all-wheel-drive and six-speed manual models were revealed in November last year, joining the existing rear-wheel-drive and eight-speed Quickshift auto models that first hit the global stage as a roadster back in 2012.
Australian buyers first got their hands on the roadster in late 2013, before the coupe arrived in July last year.
News of the coming manual, all-wheel-drive and R Convertible models rounds out the F-Type range, expanding the local line-up from six to a full dozen.
Jaguar has worked a pricing shuffle into the bargain, however, with the convertible now kicking off at $143,170 - up from $138,645.
Likewise, the absence of the V8 S means that stepping into a V8-powered Convertible - the new R grade - attracts a $43,725 premium.
The Coupe model has not gone without an increase since its recent Australian launch either, with prices for the rear-wheel-drive auto models increasing by between $5040 and $7840.
