Santa Barbara Jaguar fans are thrilled that Autobytel has named the 2014 Jaguar F-Type as Convertible of the Year and the overall winner of Car of the Year. Easily winning the convertible of the year with its beautiful design and pleasing power, the arrival of the F-Type coupe won additional votes from the editors making it a standout beyond just the convertible category. Editors loved the beauty of the F-Type and over and over again were impressed by the sound of the V8 exhaust system – simply put “the F-Type V8 will put a smile on your face.”

The beauty of the 2014 Jaguar F-Type goes beyond skin deep delivering a startling performance. Available in three levels of specification:

  • F-Type: 3.0L V6, 340 Horsepower and 332 Pound-Feet of Torque
  •  F-Type S: 3.0L Supercharged V6, 380 Horsepower and 339 Pound-Feet of Torque
  • F-Type S V8: 5.0L Supercharged V8, 495 Horsepower and 460 Pound-Feet of Torque

The F-Type is capable of leaping to 60-mph in just 5.1 seconds and the V8 S can sprint there in just 4.2 seconds. The Dynamic Launch mode makes it easier to sprint to the finish line, asking only that the driver stomp on the throttle to achieve a perfect leap off the line. The driver is able to enjoy the moment, while the computer inside the transmission and active differential do all the work balancing traction with forward momentum.

“The Jaguar F-TYPE sports Coupe features pure design including an intriguing design, dynamic sport handling, and luxurious design features,” shares Jaguar Santa Barbara General Sales Manager, Scott Westbrook.  “It is truly a one-of-a-kind vehicle and a great addition to the Jaguar F-TYPE collection.”

The F-Type’s cabin is completely driver oriented and coddles the driver and passenger with a long list of high end features and comforts. The well laid out center console includes a navigation system and a touchscreen interface.  Heated steering wheel and supportive leather sport seats offer additional comforts. Motorized air vents emerge from the dash to offer ventilation when needed, and disappear when the desired temperature has been reached to keep the driver’s view unobstructed.

The F-TYPE Coupe will go on sale in North America in spring of 2014.  Interested drivers can learn more about this exciting release at Jaguar Santa Barbara.
