Each engine is equipped with an active exhaust system, which is switchable either as an option or as standard. Customers who choose either the 450PS or 575PS supercharged V8 benefit from the new Quiet Start function, which ensures a more subtle, refined sound – the electrically-actuated bypass valves in the rear silencer remain closed until they automatically open up under load, releasing the signature roar fundamental to the F-TYPE driving experience. If desired, Quiet Start can be over-ridden by selecting Dynamic Mode or by pressing the switchable exhaust button before starting the engine.
The distinctive crackle and pop on the overrun synonymous with F-TYPE, remains, with sounds meticulously tuned to suit the distinctive character of each model. Highly efficient, close-coupled particulate filters make them even cleaner and ensure that every F-TYPE meets the most stringent emissions regulations worldwide.
Taking all of the learning accrued from the development of the limited-edition 200mph Jaguar XE SV Project 8, the Quickshift transmissions in the new F-TYPE R and the 450PS V8 models have been meticulously recalibrated for a more engaging driving experience. The new F-TYPE R specifically offers even faster, crisper gear changes when the driver commands shifts manually via the steering wheel-mounted paddles or the SportShift gear selector. Both upshifts and downshifts are more immediate and give an even more connected and responsive feel.
New to the range is the 450PS supercharged V8. Unique to F-TYPE, this 5.0-litre engine has been developed to offer exploitable, useable and rewarding performance – its maximum torque of 580Nm being generated from just 2,500rpm.
It is offered with a choice of all-wheel drive and – for purists – rear-wheel drive, and each drivetrain is completed with an electronic active differential to further optimise traction. Whichever configuration the customer chooses, they will be able to experience acceleration from 0-60mph in just 4.4 seconds, and a maximum speed of 177mph.
