The new model year also arrives with a raft of changes for a subtle facelift, and there are also nifty features such as GoPro integration.
The changes are discrete enough to eschew the idea of a proper facelift – since you need to be a true connoisseur to see the differences, such as subtly modified front bumper or the addition of full-LED headlights – and also there’s that hood-mounted GoPro. It’s there because the British automaker has a partnership with the well-known action camera manufacturer. This means 2018 MY F-Type users can use an app called “ReRun,” which can show real-time footage via the GoPro camera mounted on the car – linking the smartphone to the camera and the car’s new version of the Touch Pro infotainment system through a USB port.
Jaguar is also delivering new lightweight and slimmer seats for better ergonomics and comfort and also shaving off more than 8 kg (17.7 lbs) – the new seats can be had in Sport and Performance versions, with both heating and cooling available and we can tell you they were made from pressure diecast magnesium alloy. Pricing for the new F-Type starts at £51,450 OTR in the United Kingdom.
Additionally, the 2018 model year also gets an F-Type 400 Sport Launch Edition packing the supercharged 3.0-liter V6 massaged for an additional 20 horsepower to deliver a grand total of 400 hp. This special series will get both RWD and AWD and the eight-speed Quickshift gearbox as well as a standard mechanical limited slip differential. The yellow and dark satin grey “400 Sport” badges can be had on the Yulong White, Santorini Black, or Indus Silver body.
