The snarling Jaguar sports car that debuted roughly six months ago in L.A. will hit dealers in a little over a month.
Globally, F-Type coupe deliveries are expected to begin next month. U.S. customers, on the other hand, will wind up waiting a little bit longer to buy the newest British badboy sports car. Just like the convertible model that marked Jaguar’s re-entry into the sports car segment, the hardtop will offer a range of supercharged engines, but for thousands less in all but the range-topping R model.
The base and mid-range powetrains still rely on supercharged six-cylinder engines making 340 hp in the base car and 380 in the tuned-up S model starting at $65,000 and $77,000 respectively. But the V8 version is where things really get interesting. Jaguar took the R model – only offered as a coupe – a step further by packaging it with the 550 hp version of its supercharged eight cylinder engine. That version of the car starts at $99,000, which is a price increase over the most expensive convertible.
