Jaguar F-Type Coupe officially unveiled – video and live images inside [updated] image

The Jaguar F-Type Coupe has been officially unveiled and it will set you back for at least 51,235 for the base entry-level version.

Following the teaser images and the spy shots, the Jaguar F-Type Coupe is finally here and it will become available to its future customers in the same base and S version as the drop-top variant, taking its power from a 3.0 liter V6 supercharged unit, producing 340 HP and 450 Nm of torque, in the entry-level variant, and 380 HP and 460 Nm of torque, in the S trim. The cheapest variant can accelerate from 0 to 60 mph (96 km/h) in 5.1 seconds and it can reach a top speed of 161 mph (259 km/h) while the F-Type Coupe S can accelerate in 4.9s to 60 mph before reaching a top speed of 171 mph (275 km/h).

Besides these two versions, the Jaguar F-Type Coupe will also get the new R variant, which is taking its power from a 5.0 liter supercharged engine, “borrowed” from the XKR-S and XFR-S vehicles. The unit is producing a total output of 550 HP (404 kW) and it has a peak torque of 680 Nm (501 lb-ft). The 0 to 60 mph (96 km/h) sprint in the Jaguar F-Type Coupe R will take just 4 seconds and its top speed has been electronically limited to 186 mph (300 km/h).

Jaguar says that the S and the R trim levels are now getting optional features such as the carbon ceramic matrix brakes, which are actually 21 kg (46 lbs) lighter than the standard brakes, and all three variants get the 8-speed Quickshift transmission, with full manual sequential mode, available through the steering wheel mounted paddle shifters or the central SportShift selector.

The exterior design of the brand new Jaguar F-Type Coupe is looking basically the same as the one of the C-X16 Concept and the only difference between it and the F-Type Roadster is the fixed roof. The cheapest version of the F-Type Coupe will set you back for 51,235 GBP, in the UK, while the mid-spec F-Type S will be priced from 60,235 GBP. Order the top of the line F-Type R and you will have to pay at least 85,000 GBP. Sales of the sports car will begin in March, 2014.
