MELBOURNE – Feb 25, 2014: Jaguar Australia is delighted to announce the new F-TYPE Coupe will have a recommended retail price starting from $119,900 (excluding all on road costs).

The all-aluminium F-TYPE Coupe, Jaguar’s most dynamically capable, performance-focused sports car is due to arrive in Australian dealerships in July this year. The F-TYPE Coupe will be available in three variants - F-TYPE, F-TYPE S, and the new range-topping F-TYPE R.

The range-topping F-TYPE R Coupé represents the pinnacle of the F-TYPE range. The F-TYPE R Coupé is powered by Jaguar's 5.0-litre Supercharged V8 engine in 404kW/680Nm tune, delivering acceleration to 100km/h in 4.2-seconds, and a top speed of 300km/h.

The F-TYPE S Coupé and F-TYPE Coupé are powered by Jaguar's 3.0-litre V6 Supercharged petrol engines in 280kW/460Nm and 250kW/450Nm forms respectively, giving 0-100km/h in 4.9/5.3-seconds and top speeds of 275/260km/h.

The F-TYPE Coupé embodies the uncompromised design vision of the stunning Jaguar C-X16 concept sports coupé that debuted at the 2011 Frankfurt Motor Show, its dramatic cabin-rearward stance being defined by three heartlines. The first two heartlines - shared with F-TYPE Convertible - form the muscular front and rear wings, the third heartline being the sweeping Coupé roof profile which provides an unbroken silhouette while emphasising the visual drama of the tapered cabin sitting between powerful rear haunches.

"The F-TYPE Coupé provides its driver with a unique sports car experience. It combines seductive design with cutting-edge technology and performance which is truly breathtaking. Engaging, precise, intuitive and alive - it is the definitive sports Coupé."
