Jaguar F-Type Convertible Specs
Before we talk about Gadot’s Jaguar F-Type Convertible, let’sfirst talk about the car itself. The Jaguar F-Type is a two-door, two-seatersports car manufactured in Britain by Jaguar Land Rover. The F-Type debuted in2013 as the successor to the E-type and the replacement for the XK grandtourer. The car was initially debuted as a two-door soft-top convertible with atwo-door fastback coupe option. Today, it’s been refreshed several times withradically redesigned features from the front end and engine to drivetrainoptions.
The Jaguar F-Type was introduced in 2000 with a 3.0-liter V6 engine from the S-Type saloon. It was designed to compete against the Porsche Boxster and later was reintroduced in Sundance, London in 2013 as a convertible. Regardless of the redesign, it made waves in the industry as Jaguar’s first sports car in over 50 years. And Jaguar certainly didn’t disappoint.
The F-Type features a lightweight aluminum frame with a frontengine and rear-wheel drive making it truly feel like a sports car. There arethree models available ranging from $69,000 to $100,000 depending on engineoption with the 340-horsepower V6 engine running on the low end while the495-horsepower 5.0-liter supercharged V8 engine will set you back $100,000. Thisis of course what Gadot drives!
The F-Type offers a Quickshift automatic transmission with acenter-console mounted gear selector, which confused many sports carenthusiasts looking for a manual transmission. Regardless, the car didn’tdisappoint with a top speed of 195 miles per hour. The F-Type with a V6 enginecan go from 0 to 62 miles per hour in 5.7 seconds while the F-Type with a V-8engine makes the acceleration in 4.8 seconds flat. Talk about sheerexhilaration behind the wheel!
Today, the F-Type is still in production and recently underwent anentire facelift in 2021. The redesign was revealed in December 2019 with theF-Type featuring a redesigned front-end as well as a new engine and drivetrainoptions.
