Jaguar launches the gorgeous F-Type in India

The Indian landscape just became a whole lot more beautiful, as Jaguar unleashed its gorgeous F-Type in our country today. Well, we might be exaggerating a bit here, but the F-Type is so good-looking that it makes you go weak on your knees. Just look at those incredibly sexy taillights and that curvaceous rear, if you don’t believe us. With the F-Type intended to be the spiritual successor of the legendary E-Type that is widely considered as ‘one of the most beautiful cars ever’, the designers at Jaguar had their work cut out. And boy, have they delivered!

Two variants of the F-Type have been launched in India, the V6 S and the V8 S. At INR 1.37 Crores for the V6 and INR 1.61 Crores for the V8 (Ex-showroom Mumbai), the F-Type is definitely pricey. But, with the Porsche 911 and Audi R8 as its chief competitors, the F-Type isn’t targeted at the regular Joe as well.

For its price, the F-Type comes with a host of technological advancements and features that justifies its positioning. Detailing is top-notch like, for instance, those pop-out door handles that juts out of the body only when they have to be used and the pop-up air-conditioner vents that rises from the dashboard once the ignition is turned on. Agreed, these are just electric motors that are doing nothing but increasing the kerb weight, but it is such detailing that makes you fall in love with the car. The Active Exhaust Note that gets louder at the touch of a button and a retractable soft-top are the other features that the F-Type owners can boast of.

The V6 S variant is powered by a supercharged 3.0-liter engine that puts out 375 bhp of power and 460 Nm of torque. This motor accelerates the F-Type from a 0 to 100 km/h in just 4.9 seconds and gives it a top speed of 275 km/h. The V8 S variant comes with a 5.0-liter supercharged engine that produces 488 bhp of power and 625 Nm of torque. 0 to 100 is reached in just 4.3 seconds and the top speed is limited to 300 km/h. Both the engines are mated to a 8-speed Quickshift automatic transmission.

But, with such a stunning design, are you even bothered about the specs? For once, let the specifications be damned! Go, buy the Jaguar F-Type just for its looks, if the asking price isn't a concern.
