Jaguar F-Type Priced from $69,000 in the U.S., configurator launched image

Jaguar has announced United States pricing of its new sports car, the 2013 F-Type convertible.

The starting price in the U.S. will be $69,000 (plus a $875 destination fee). The price corresponds to the entry-level model, fitted with a supercharged 3.0-liter V6 engine that delivers 340 horsepower. The engine is mated to an eight-speed ZF automatic gearbox.

Those who want more will have to settle for a $81,000 F-Type S, which has the same 3.0-liter engine but is tuned to develop 380 horsepower. It also has an active exhaust system, a mechanical limited-slip differential, bigger brakes and launch control. The F-Type S sprints from 0 to 60 mph in 4.8 seconds, (0.3 seconds quicker than the standard F-Type), while top speed is also increased by 10 mph to 171 mph (275 km/h).

Those who absolutely want the quickest F-Type and don’t care about money can opt for the top of the range V8 model. It costs $92,000 plus delivery, but it will sprint from 0 to 60 mph in just 4.2 seconds and reach a top speed 182 mph (300 km/h).
