The F-Type R coupé gets a 5.0-litre V8 supercharged engine that produces 550 PS and 680 Nm of torque, capable of going from 0-60 mph (0-96 km/h) in 4.0 seconds and an electronically limited top-speed of 186 mph (297.6 km/h).

Completing the range, the F-Type S coupé and F-Type coupé produce 380 PS and 340 PS respectively. A 3.0-litre supercharged V6 does the duty on these models, and achieves the 0-60 mph in 4.8 and 5.1 seconds respectively, with top-speeds of 171 mph (273 km/h) and 161 mph (257 km/h).

An all-new Carbon Ceramic Matrix braking system, coupled with a torque vectoring by braking system gives optimum handling in the F-Type R coupé. All variants get an eight-speed Quickshift transmission with full manual sequential control via steering wheel-mounted paddles or the central SportShift lever.

The F-TYPE Coupé’s body side is made from a single piece aluminium pressing, probably the most extreme cold-formed aluminium body side in the automotive industry, claims Jaguar.

Further details are available in the press release below.
