The Jaguar F-Type range is about to be expanded. In addition to the V6 and V8 models in roadster and coupe form the company has confirmed that its two-seat sportster will also benefit from an all-wheel drive system – which will debut at the Los Angeles Motor Show next month.
By employing an all-wheel drive system, the F-Type R Coupe will be 0,2 seconds faster than its rear-wheel drive sibling – the company claims a 3,9 second 0-100 km/h sprint. Top speed will remain an electronically limited 300 km/h.
The announcement comes as part of Jaguar’s new partnership with the Bloodhound Project, which is aiming to blitz the current land speed record (1 227 km/h) with a 1 609 km/h (1 000 mph) target with the Bloodhound Supersonic car.
The all-wheel drive F-Type will be revealed Stateside on 19 November, where Jaguar also plans to announce that it will expand the model range with eight new F-Type variants from 2015 – which will include four-cylinder models, manual gearbox options and SVR range-toppers.
