Jaguar has taken the wraps off the the revised 2021 YM F-Type sports car. The 2021 model gets a new design that Jag says is purer, more sculpted, and assertive. The ride has a new bonnet, enlarged grille, and unique front bumper design while its new super-slim LED headlights make it look more beautiful than ever and embodies Jaguar design DNA in its purest form.
According to Jaguar, the new headlights are paired with “Calligraphy” signature J daytime running lights with slender LED tail lamps. The car can be had with a range of engines, including a four-cylinder, six-cylinder, and eight-cylinder engines. All are paired up with an 8-speed transmission with paddle shifters.
The turbo four-cylinder 2l engine makes 221kW with a single, central, quadrilateral exhaust finisher. The supercharged 3l V6 produces 280kW and has two large round tailpipes. The 5l R gets a supercharged V8 that has 423kW and quad, outboard exhausts.
The car also gets a reconfigurable, HD 12.3-inch TFT instrument cluster, Touch Pro infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto as standard. The system can be updated OTA for new features down the road. Buyers can choose from a pair of Meridian sound systems.
Customers also have the choice of the exclusive F-TYPE First Edition. Based on the R-Dynamic models, the First Edition is offered for one model year only, and has refinements such as the Exterior Design Pack in contemporary Dorchester Grey and five-spoke, 20-inch wheels in Gloss Technical Grey with contrast Diamond-Turned finish, complementing the choice of Santorini Black, Eiger Grey or Fuji White paint.
Jaguar is offering 16 new colours in the SVO Premium Paint Palette in gloss or satin finishes. The F-TYPE range will be introduced to sub-Sahara Africa sometime this year. Exact date TBC.
