Jaguar F-Type gets new design and tech

2021 Jaguar F-Type: The Villainous Brit Gets a New Face, Digital Gauge Cluster

The 450hp V8 buyer gets to choose between rear-wheel-drive and four-wheel-drive systems, while the 2.0-litre customer is offered rear-wheel drive only.

In a reorganisation at the top of the F-Type's three-tier range, the 575hp performance versions of the coupé and convertible are available with only all-wheel drive and the plushest, sportiest R specification - which also gets a complete rethink of spring and damper settings.

After months of teasing the vehicle, Jaguar has finally pulled the wraps off the 2020 F-Type facelift globally.

As part of the collaboration, Hot Wheels built a 1:64 scale version of the sports vehicle complete with a familiar black and white camouflage wrap. Inside the cabin, the materials used are rich and new details include monogram stitch patterns in the seats and door trims, Jaguar Leaper motifs in the headrests, and subtle "Jaguar Est.1935" markings on the centre console finisher, glovebox release button surround, and seatbelt guides. First launched in 2012, the F-Type made quite an impact with its focused driving dynamics and talkative exhaust.

Australia says treatment endured by its citizen in Chinas detention camp unacceptable
Australia's foreign minister on Monday said the treatment of a writer detained in China was "unacceptable", after reports emerged of torture and daily interrogation.

Since taking the reins from long-time Jaguar design director Ian Callum earlier this year, Julian Thompson's first job is to redesign the F-Type.

The exterior changes are most noticeable at the front of the F-Type, with sleeker headlights giving the nose of the vehicle a more aggressive appearance. Jaguar claims that the 2020 F-Type can clock triple-digit-speed from a standstill in just 3.5 seconds. There are new super-slim LED headlights with updated "Calligraphy" signature J daytime running lights, which are purposely created to give the vehicle a wider stance. The lower-powered V8 can turn a 4.4sec 0-100kph time and hit 285kph, while the 2.0-litre's 0-100kph time is a respectable 5.4sec and its top speed is 250kph. It features a Dorchester Grey exterior design pack as well as Gloss Technical Grey 20-inch alloy wheels with a diamond-turned finish. It now produces 575-horsepower and 516 pound-feet of torque, an increase of 25 horsepower and around 14 torques than the previous V8. The latter helped to enable the tiny F-Type to hit scale speeds of up to 300 miles per hour (483 km/h). The V8 also comes with a "quiet mode" exhaust feature so as not to disturb your neighbors when starting the auto.

Interestingly, it seems the range for South Africa will no longer include manual gearboxes, with all SA-spec variants set to adopt the eight-speed "Quickshift" automatic transmission as standard. You can manually shift gears by either fiddling with the gear selector or the steering-mounted paddle shifters. However, we're expecting base prices to creep a bit higher than the previous F-Type's $61,000 base price.
