Engine & Performance
The F-Type comes with a turbo-charged 3.0 liter engine with 380hp or the low powered 340 horsepower. Both versions are fully equipped with a stop/start system for maximum fuel efficiency for certain on-road conditions.
The V6 engines combine direct fuel injections, high compression and dual independent variable cam-timing to deliver impeccable efficiency and performance.
The engine boasts a spray-guided direct injection system that delivers precise quantities of fuel into the combustion chamber using high pressure creating a perfect scenario for efficient combustion and homogenous air-fuel mixture.
Another feature that sets the F-Type miles ahead of its competitors is its closely spaced automatic transmission which make the task of keeping the engine well within its maximum power band a lot easier.
As far as exterior design is concerned, the F-Type's assertive design language is in a class of its own. It features two "heartline" themes with the main one beginning in the blade cutting the shark like gills on either face of the grille.
Its muscular elegance leads the eye along the front fender which is clearly emphasized by a sinuous headlamp design.
Every aspect of its interior creates something that is physically exciting. Its cabin structure reflects a focus on the driver. All essential controls are logically located naturally and easy to reach that allow maximum focus on the road.
There's a TFT LCD window just next to the speedometer that provides the driver with additional information.
