Jaguar has just revealed the very sexy coupe companion to the F-Type convertible. In addition to a fixed roof, the F-Type coupe introduces torque vectoring and carbon ceramic disc brakes to the F-Type range.
All F-Type coupes are fitted with supercharged petrol engines, slimline LED tail-lights and a boot that’s been engineered to consume two whole golf bags, which really goes to show you who the true target market is. Equipment available throughout the F-Type coupe range includes dual-zone climate control air con, electronic parking brake, automatic engine stop/start, rear spoiler with driver adjustable height control, cruise control and speed limiter, electric seat adjustment with memory, sat nav, and a top-shelf Meridian sound system.
The range topping F-Type R is fitted with both an active electric rear differential and torque vectoring to help get all the power to the ground and improve cornering. An option on the F-Type S and R coupe is a new ceramic braking package, which is said to not only dramatically improving stopping ability, but also shave around 21kg of weight from the car.
The new F-Type coupe range go on sale in Australia from the third quarter of 2014. Australia specs and pricing have yet to be confirmed.
