Limited edition cars are a blessing and a curse. On the one hand, they tend to give extra pep and some exclusivity to a known engine. On the other hand, they are not there forever, so you can not get the same quality in the same package. Jaguar decided it was time for the 2018 Jaguar F-Type to receive the “special” treatment, so to accompany its recent facelift, a new one-year model appeared – the F-Type 400 Sport.
It may not seem old, but the 2018 Jaguar F-Type is entering its fifth model year, which usually means it’s time to go under the knife for a pinch. Obviously, Jaguar’s design chief, Ian Callum, could not find much to change on his Rembrandt, so the handsome two-seater comes out with a fasciabatically restored front, the two external air intakes have been replaced and new headlights have been added. LED with adaptive function available. Although the design can be modified a little, we do not complain Jaguar has given more substantial type F updates with new technologies as well as new model variants, including (gasp!) Turbocharged four-cylinder engine.
No model revision can be complete without new technology, and the 2018 Jaguar F-Type is no exception, even though its biggest new feature is ReRun. ReRun essentially integrates data from the car into GoPro videos (although GoPro hardware is not included). GoPro footage can now be overlaid with an instrumentation graph that displays information such as speed, selected gear, throttle position, steering wheel angle, lateral and longitudinal acceleration, and force. braking.
In other new techniques, there is a new standard infotainment system: Touch Pro. It features an 8.0-inch haptic touchscreen, a customizable home screen, a pinch-and-pinch zoom feature, and a 4G LTE data connection. The new features of the navigation system include the ability to send an ETA to selected contacts, the ability to calculate whether the car has enough fuel to reach a defined destination, and the automatic download of routes from a connected smartphone.
2018 Jaguar F-Type F-2018 four-cylinder, V-6, R-Dynamic, 400 Sport, R and SVR models are expected to arrive at US dealers in the spring. Base prices start at $ 60,895 for the four-cylinder coupe and reach $ 125,995 for the SVR convertible.
