The beast is back. Resurrecting the myth, Jaguar launched the F-type, which is modeled on the legend D-type. Sporting a classic Jaguar design of a long hood with a short tail, the F-types can cruise to 100 kmph in just 4.7 seconds. The interiors are lavish and feel special but the hard suspensions and long hood that blocks front view are minor flaws

As the legend D-type Jaguar completes its diamond jubilee;Jaguar has come up with a beast that will revive the myth. D-type was the best-of-its-kind car, known for unsurpassed asymmetric design and an impeccable dynamic efficiency, the car also pioneered sporting disc brakes; resurrecting the myth, the company has launched the beast, Jaguar F-type.

The gauge cluster is a traditional design with excellent visibility

The great grandson of D-type rolls out the fixed roof variant of the company’s first real sports car design in over four decades. F-type was made after decades of the launch of E-type and the effort indeed is visible. In a single line, the F-type is an ideal sports car of this generation.

The automobile sports classic design of Jaguar, a long hood with a short tail. Under the long hood, is a powerful 3.0L supercharged V-6 engine, capable of producing 380 horsepower and 339 pound-feet of torque. Conjointly with the eight speed Quickshift ZF transmission, including a sport mode, the automobile swifts to a speed of 100 kmph in just 4.7 seconds. The fascinating part is perhaps the noise and snarl the engine makes, it sounds rough while on manual mode and is smooth on sport mode. If you were to test the threshold of F-type, it speeds to a terminal of 275 kmph, like a tornado. Drifting to transmission, if you were to turn auto transmission on, you would notice early shifts in speeds. However, the lever near the stylish steering wheel is preferably the best for transmission.

The aerodynamic design of the vehicle, well known since the D-type, is impeccable. Not missing on the material, the F-type has a body mostly made of aluminum and yes, it makes the car lighter and increases the efficiency. The vehicle is designed cleverly and doesn’t need broilers. To be stable at high speeds, a part of the boot rises up as you cross 60 mph and gives a 120 kgs down-force to the car, adding to the stability.

While you are speeding the vehicle, the water-cooled intercooler reduces the temperature of the intake air. The intercooler here plays a crucial role as it increases the efficiency and power.

The interiors are lavish and feel special. What’s good about technology is the use of bronzed buttons, different moods of lightings and the electric seats. While most of the cars keep it technically too complex, Jaguar sustains to keep it simple. Though the vehicle is equipped with manual settings changes for suspension, gearbox. There is nothing complex.

An extravaganza in the vehicle is the rearview mirror sensors. It’s good to see them folding in sensing traffic and vehicles approaching. Smart vehicle!

With a stylish, lightweight automobile and a powerful engine alongside intelligent aerodynamics, F-type Jaguar is a perfect one and worth the cost. Jaguar though took long to come up with the F-type after the E-type, it is completely bang on and the efforts are evident with its performance and style.

However, everything has minor flaws. What’s wrong with the vehicle is its hard suspension. With a car like that, there is no need for such hard suspensions. No one would prefer a real hard drive, be it on a country-side road, city or the racing track. Though the long hood gives a sporty look, the design is faulty, as it blocks the front view.
