The new Jaguar F-Type 400 Sport

Jaguar has updated the whole of the F-Type range for 2017, as well as introducing two new variants, the 400 Sport and R-Dynamic.

The range receives a host of new technology and is now much sleeker in appearance. The range has full LED headlights, a wireless GoPro camera, new bumper design, updated interior styling and lightweight seats.

The first new model, the F-Type 400 Sport, is a special launch edition that will be on sale for only a year. The 400 Sport is the star of the new line-up, featuring a 3.0-litre supercharged V6 tweaked to produce 395bhp. The powertrain is linked to an eight-speed Quickshift automatic transmission.

The chassis has also been uprated with Jaguar’s Super performance braking system and Configurable Dynamic system. The new systems give the car larger brakes and allows for the driver to configure a range of different settings for the transmission, dampers and steering. The launch edition car will be available in a choice of rear-wheel drive or all-wheel drive.

The 400 Sport is fitted with Jaguars Sport Design Pack, featuring a large rear diffuser, chin splitter and new side skirts. Special 400 Sport badges adorn the exterior and 20 inch satin grey alloy wheels. The interior receives unique contrast stitching. The special edition will be available in a choice of Coupe or convertible in a choice of 3 colours: silver, black or white.

Jaguar’s new R-Dynamic 340 variant will replace the old F-Type S. The new model sits above the standard F-Type and is powered a 3.0-litre V6 petrol engine producing a choice of 335bhp or 375bhp. The R-Dynamic is available with rear-wheel drive and all-wheel drive combinations dependant on the gearbox. The new model also receives 19 inch alloys and gloss black highlights on the rear-diffuser, front splitter and side sills.

Pricing for the new range starts at £51,450 for the standard F-Type Coupe, £55,150 for the R-Dynamic and £70,115 for the special 400 Sport Launch edition. Deliveries are expected to start in spring 2017.
