    Re: Jaguar F-Type total leak

    KresoF1:

    Other good thing is that F type will actually replace XK. Jaguar decision to make new car smaller is a wise one IMO.


    Thanks for the clarification. Still surprising that they keep both models available for a certain time.

    I'm wondering why the breaks are not ventilated? 


    They are certainly ventilated, just not cross-drilled.

    Ok, thats what I meant. Haven't seen this on any recent sports car

    Re: Jaguar F-Type total leak

    A beautiful car, well done Jaguar.  After all these years a true replacement for the legendary E Type. blush

    Re: Jaguar F-Type total leak

    Does look gorgeous but as a keen driver would you buy it over a Boxster S, or is it aimed at a different market?  Am thinking the latter!

    Well done Jaguar!

    Well done Jaguar!

    I think its real competitors are going the be the Vantage, Z4, and SL


    Re: Jaguar F-Type total leak

    Going to have a 'interesting' decision to make...

    I put a 'letter of intent' in in 2000 when the first F-Type concept was shown, but they didn't make it and I bought my first Porsche. I then wrote again in 2005ish when they showed another. I was contacted last year by Jaguar based on those letters and was offered an early car, so I gave them a holding deposit and flew out to Frankfurt to see the concept there.

    Going to have to decide soon whether to continue or not, probably without driving the car. The V8 sounds fantastic and performance (on paper) looks great, but at almost £90k specced up, and given Jags love of depreciation it might be too rich. The V6S is meant to be the sweet spot in the range according to 'those in the know' but still works out £15k more than a similarly specced Boxster S with similar performance - I know this is meant to be in a different sector, but wondering if the market will see it... oh well, not a bad quandry to be in.... and still keeping the Spyder what ever I decide :)

     


    Re: Jaguar F-Type total leak

    Go for it Rich - you know you want to!  From what I've seen here and on the Jaguar website the F Type looks absolutely stunning externally, not quite so sure about the interior - but for sure the V8 must be the one to go for, in Italian Racing Red metallic with black wheels. blush

    For the traditionalists yes, and a very good choice too - with beige leather. SmileyBoth colours would have to be with black soft top.

    Re: Jaguar F-Type total leak

    I would have the BRG with a white or beige hood and beige leather inside. The Rosso Corsa would have to have a black hood and black leather interior though.
