The 2013 Jaguar F-TYPE is available in three models including the 340-hp F-TYPE, the 380-hp F-TYPE S and the 495-hp F-TYPE V8 S. The lightweight sports car tips the scale starting at 3,521 pounds. The first two models are powered by a 3.0 liter supercharged V6 while the F-TYPE V8 S carries a 5.0 liter supercharged V8. All are equipped with the new Intelligent Stop/Start system to enhance fuel economy under certain driving conditions. All engines drive through an 8-speed ‘Quickshift’ automatic transmission, with a center console-mounted SportShift gear selector and steering wheel-mounted paddles.
0 to 60 mph comes in 5.1 seconds for the F-TYPE, 4.8 for the S model and 4.2 for the V8 S. The V8 S has a top track speed of 186 mph. Available Configurable Dynamics program allows the driver to tailor a number of the dynamic features to personal taste and includes displays for lap timer and G-meter functions
For those that are concerned about the speed of the top, Jaguar says that the convertible top folds in 12 seconds at speeds up to 30 mph.
The Jaguar F-TYPE is scheduled to arrive in U.S. market in summer 2013.

Jaguar's designs been killing it lately and now you don't have to worry about them breaking down all the time. I'm probably in the minority here but I think dropping the top takes away from the design. I think cars look a lot better when the top isn't down...

Agreed. This is the first sports car Jaguar has made in a long time. Their focus has been on luxury
