The range-topping F-TYPE V8S will reach 100 km/h in 4.3 seconds and has a top speed of 300 km/h. The 380PS V6 F-TYPE S will reach 100 km/h in 4.9 seconds and has a top speed of 275 km/h.
Rohit Suri, Vice President, Jaguar & Land Rover India, said: “The Jaguar F-TYPE is our all-new, two seater sports car and we believe it will be a game changer for the Indian sports car market. With its stunning design and driver focused engineering, this car will further enhance the appeal of our brand and I am confident that it will arouse senses and stir emotions like no other car in India”.
Prices for the Jaguar F-TYPE S are INR 1.37 Crore and for the range topping F-TYPE V8S are INR 1.61 Crore. (Ex-showroom Mumbai, pre- Octroi). Jaguar India has registered sales growth of 68% in the first quarter of this fiscal year. This growth has been helped by the locally assembled Jaguar XF 2.2 litre diesel, which was launched earlier this calendar year.
