JAGUAR DEBUTS 2016 F-TYPE R COUPE FEATURING INSTINCTIVE ALL-WHEEL-DRIVE

◾Jaguar transforms the F-TYPE R Coupe wîth the addition of standard All-Wheel-Drive
◾Full details of the 2016 F-TYPE model range will be announced at the 2014 Los Angeles International Auto Show on November 19
◾AWD reveal marks the start of a Jaguar partnership wîth Bloodhound SSC, a British Land Speed Record team aiming to exceed 1,000 mph

(SOÚTH AFRICA) – November 5, 2014 – Today, in the South African desert on Hakskeen Pan, Jaguar unveiled the new 2016 F-TYPE R Coupe featuring all-wheel-drive technology, a first for the F-TYPE line-up. Expanding its dynamic capability of reaching 60 mph in 3.9 seconds wîth a limited top-speed of 186 mph1, standard Instinctive All-Wheel-Drive® and Intelligent Driveline Dynamics will provide F-TYPE R drivers wîth improved traction and confidence in a variety of road conditions2.

The addition of all-wheel-drive is one of a number of performance enhancements to the award-winning Jaguar F-TYPE model range which will grow from six to 12 derivatives in the 2016 model year – the full model range will debut at the 2014 Los Angeles International Auto Show on November 19.

'Our target wîth engineering the all-wheel-drive F-TYPE was to maintain the engaging rear-drive character that's so important to Jaguar sports cars, yet offer even greater dynamic capability.' – Ian Hoban, Vehicle Line Director, Jaguar

The reveal also marks the start of a technical partnership between Jaguar and Bloodhound SSC. With the ultimate aim of raising the world land speed record to above 1,000 mph, Jaguar assisted the Bloodhound SSC team in successfully completing a vital communications test at the Hakskeen Pan in the Northern Cape of South Africa.

Vital Stats

8-speed Automatic
On the relatively soft surface of the Hakskeen Pan, the stability of the F-TYPE R AWD Coupe was demonstrated as it was driven flat-out by Bloodhound SSC chairman and former world land speed record holder, Richard Noble.


Fitted wîth the same radio equipment as the Bloodhound SSC, the F-TYPE was driven at top speed towards a jet flown at 500 mph and just above 50-ft above the ground. The combined closing speed of almost 700 mph enabled the successful test of the system that will allow communications between the ground crew and Andy Green in the Bloodhound SSC, which will run for the first time on the Hakskeen Pan just twelve months from now. Andy Green currently holds the supersonic land speed record of 763.035 mph which he set in the Thrust SSC in 1997 in the Ú.S.

Full details of the new 2016 model year F-TYPE model range will be announced at the 2014 Los Angeles International Auto Show on November 19. The Jaguar Land Rover press conference will take place at 2:40 pm PST (22:40 GMT). Andy Green will be available at the press conference to confirm the full extent of the technical collaboration between Jaguar and the Bloodhound SSC program.

Designed by Ian Callum, the F-Type is a modern rendition of the classic long bonnet shape immortalized by the 1960's E-Type. (Although some have said that the car may resemble the chunkier style of the C-Type).

While three different engine options are available in this new Jaguar model: two different - 3.0 liter V6s and a 5.0 liter V8 that is in the F-Type R. All three F-Types powertrains are supercharged with liquid-to-air intercooling allowing very impressive numbers. For the V6 engines, either 340 hp or 380 hp versions are available. For the V8, power is 550 hp delivering blistering acceleration. The V6's produce 0-60 mph times of 5.3 seconds to 4.9 seconds depending on speciation level and the V8 comes in with a 0-60 mph time of 3.9 seconds, with a top speed of 186 mph.

The Jaguar F-Type is the car some Jaguar enthusiasts have been waiting 40 years to buy: the successor to the legendary Jaguar F-Type. Designed by Ian Callum, the F-Type is a modern rendition of the classic long bonnet shape immortalized by the 1960's E-Type. (Although some have said that the car may resemble the chunkier style of the C-Type.)

This F-Type R is no fat-cat tourer to whoosh down the highway typical of Jaguar chassis tuning of the past. This vehicle is lean and ready for a vicious run through the twisties on your favorite back road.
