Jaguar announces F-Type Coupe pricing

Jaguar New Zealand has announced that the pricing for the F-Type Coupé will be lower than the Convertible equivalent which is currently on sale in dealerships nationally.

The F-Type Coupé will be priced from $125,000, the F-Type S Coupé will be priced from $140,000 and the F-Type R Coupé will be priced from $185,000

The Coupé range complements the existing 2013 World Car Design award-winning F-Type Convertibles and the first vehicles are expected in New Zealand around July 2014

“The F-Type Convertible has been a game changer for the Jaguar brand in New Zealand and it’s obvious to see why it won the 2013 World Car Design of the Year Award” says Jaguar New Zealand brand manager Paul Ricketts. “We expect the Coupé will continue this momentum that the Convertible has started, as we already have a number of deposits from New Zealand customers for the Coupé.”

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 (electronically limited). This same engine is also found in the new Jaguar performance sedans the XFR-S and the XJR which are due to arrive in New Zealand in April.

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 0-100k/h in 4.9/5.3-seconds and top speeds of 275/260km/h.

Jaguar’s expertise in aluminium technology has enabled the design vision for the Coupé to be delivered in a lightweight yet extremely strong bodyshell. Torsional rigidity for all Coupé variants is 33,000 Nm/degree – greater than any previous production Jaguar – this rigidity providing the basis for excellent dynamic attributes.

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, eliminating the requirement for multiple panels and cosmetic joints. The roof panel itself is available in either aluminium or panoramic glass form. A deployable rear spoiler sits within the tapered shut-line of the Coupé, while slim, wrap-around LED lamps flank a beautifully engineered tailgate, with optional powered open/close functionality.

Every F-Type Coupé model utilises Jaguar’s eight-speed close-ratio Quickshift transmission which is optimised for sporting performance, with full manual sequential control from the central SportShift selector or steering wheel-mounted paddles.
