The online configurator for the new Jaguar F-Type is now live. Our Jaguar F-Type V8 S ended up costing £91,440.
The new Jaguar F-Type may only just have officially bowed in at the Paris Motor Show, but Jaguar already has the online configurator up and running (you can go and play with it here).
The F-Type configurator is a decent effort with just about everything speccable – and viewable as you spec it up – from colours and wheels to active exhaust and flat bottomed steering wheel.
What is interesting - although we admit the car we specced up was the F-Type V8 S which come with a decent spec in the cost – is that the entry-level F-Type with the 340PS V6 Supercharged engine doesn’t even get leather seats as standard – they’re an extra £3k for the Performance seats with Premium Leather facings and contrast stitching.
There’s a plethora of ‘Packs’ on offer for the F-Type too, with exterior stuff like the Black Pack (£995), Design Pack (£1500) and Parking Pack (£500) and interior stuff like the Seat Memory Pack (£1550), Extended Leather Pack (£880) and Interior Black Pack (£950).
The prices aren’t bargain basement, but they’re no more than they’d cost from any other premium maker. We didn’t go daft with ‘our’ F-Type V8 S and yet it still came to £91,440, and an entry level F-Type with the Premium Leather Interior, 20″ Blade Alloys, Meridiam Sound System and Active Sports exhausts and nothing else extra – despite temptation – came in at £68,275.
The Jaguar F-Type looks to be a great car, but its prices are distinctly ‘Premium’. Still, ‘Premium’ prices haven’t done sales of the Range Rover Evoque any harm.
