The all-new and long-awaited Jaguar F-Type will kick off in Australia with a range of three variants starting from $139,000 plus on-road costs.

Three variants of the F-Type convertible sports car will be available in Australia – F-Type, F-Type S and F-Type V8 S.

They are powered by Jaguar’s new 3.0-litre V6 supercharged petrol engine in 250kW and 280kW tunes and its 5.0-litre V8 Supercharged petrol unit that produces 364kW of power.

Stepping up to the more powerful F-Type V6 S attracts a $32,400 premium over the entry-level F-Type, to be priced from $171,400, while the range-topping F-Type V8 S starts at $202,300.

All F-Types come with free scheduled servicing for three years or 100,000km.

The V6-powered base model F-Type accelerates from 0-100km/h in 5.3 seconds, has a top speed of 260km/h and CO2 emissions of 209g/km.

    Better pricing than I expected, to be honest. I guess there was a bit of pressure from the XK at the upper end.

    I the end people will pick this for the looks or something a tiny bit different. The Boxster S is going to be the finer driving machine but it’s not as sexy. A bit like going a V8 Vantage over a Carrera S.

    • Phil

      Yeah, looks like they’ve picked their targets. Base model looks set squarely against the Boxster S with PDK on price, the S is pretty much up against the SLK55 and the V8S sitting where there’s really nothing comparable for the money. 3 years free servicing is a good deal-sweetener. Putting aside the price in foreign markets, it’s mostly where I expected it to be.

    • Zaccy16

      i agree, this is a fantastic looking car, i would actually buy a v8 vantage over a 911 like i would by one of these over a cayman if i was using my heart but at the end i would probably chicken out and get the porsche!

  • Marka

    Why are Jag’s still so expensive here! They could(and IMO should) price them much more aggressively and take a massive amount of market share.

    Awesome looking car though

      Funny you say that. I always bleat about the US prices and I know there are arguments for and against, but consider this: In the US an XF 2 litre turbo is about $45K. In Oz, same car about $80K. Not so bad, but wait – in the US the 6 cyl supercharged XF is only about $5000 more, less than $50K. In Oz is it $40K more, at about $120K. Even being maths challenged, like me, that is a whopping 8 times the price difference. It is just absolutely insane. Then the XFR is $83K in the US, about $40K more than the 2 litre. In Oz, $180K, so $100K more than the 2 litre, but curiously only 2 1/2 times the price difference of the US models, instead of 8 times. One might think that the pricing has nothing to do with taxes, it is just how much they can gouge having regard to the competition. If the 6 cyl supercharged was $100K, they would walk out the door.

        You are right Peter. Obviously it’s a gouge. Starting prices are unjustifiably high, and the jumps from model to model are outrageous. There of course will be those that get on here that have some form of relationship with the company (no what I mean) that try and say it’s right, but common sense and numbers world wide show otherwise.

        • Mike

          price gouging plan and simple, it appears the australian consumer can afford and is prepared to pay these prices so companies chargethese prices.ofcourse they r gona blame shipping costs, economies of scale etc. what about when the manoro built in australia was shipped to the us rebaged as a pontiac gto n sold for HALF the price…they didnt sell a great amount either so there was no large volume to justify the lower price.. Its just that the yanks rnt prepared to pay 70k for a holdenbut we are

      • Marka

        Spot on Peter. Jag Aust clearly have a massive margin on there product here

        What’s even more disappointing with the price of teh F Type is that this car was initially touted as a Boxter competitor, which has a starting price of 100K. They haven’t even tried to price it competitively to it

        • Peter

          Yeah, though there was a thought it would be closer to a 911 in price. But my irritation isnt with the dealers, they have to live with it and I’m sure they would love it if the prices were lower. Anyway, my local guys couldnt be better to deal with, especially when they are motivated to get rid of a demo, and I really get fussed over when the car is in for servicing etc. They even laugh at my jokes

      • racrepus

        It’s funny. Nearly all manufacturers do it, then they wonder why they sell so few compared to other similar sized markets.

  • Norm

    It’s all about the red one

  • Shak

    God that black one at the end…It is absolutely stunning.

    • Zaccy16

      i agree, its a fantastic looking car inside and out, black is a fnatastic colour for a car!

  • marc

    sensational

  • Gigi

    Is it worth importing one from overseas?
