The 564 lb chassis, made of aluminum, qualifies as the lightest one produced by Jaguar. We have a spoiler at the back which would deploy at speeds higher than 60 Mph delivering a downward force of 264lb to ensure that the car stays close to the road. We’ve got retractable door handles to ensure smooth airflow. What else could you ask from your car? Going from 0-60Mph in 4.2 seconds and a maximum speed of 186 Mph, the supercharged cylinders are being dubbed as F-type V8 S. The transmission is a smart eight speed transmission. Why the smart transmission? It analyses how the driver drives and selects according a shifting model from the 25 presets available to it. Some variables considered by the system include; how the driver accelerates or brakes, how he takes turns and at what speed. Suspension is adaptive; chassis motion is measured at an astonishing 100 times per second and the steering inputs are taken at 500 times per second. The result is a suspension able to re-adjust and calibrate itself while keeping the ride smooth and car leveled.
Furthermore, the Jaguar F type allows for the users to create custom profiles as per their driving habits. For example, one could adjust how stiff the steering should be or the suspension, what would be the shifting sensitivity and how would engine respond. This all and much more is what the Jaguar F type has to offer and is expected to live up the legend that its predecessors started! Even surpass it perhaps, who knows!
