The New Jaguar F-TYPE - Bryan Benedict, Senior Manager of Product Design, Hot WheelsAutomoto TV
Purposeful, beautiful and timeless: the new Jaguar F-Type looks more dramatic than ever and embodies Jaguar design DNA in its purest form. The perfect proportions are instantly recognisable, but the new F-Type looks even more focused and assertive, and references the beautiful flowing forms from Jaguar's rich sports car heritage. Super-slim pixel LED headlights with subtly updated 'Calligraphy' J signature daytime running lights and sweeping direction indicators blend perfectly into the 'liquid metal' surfacing of the new clamshell bonnet. The new front bumpers and subtly enlarged grille deliver even more visual impact and presence. The rear haunches enhance the F-Type's inherently dramatic, purposeful form, and sweep downwards to the slender rear LED lights with 'Chicane' signature introduced by the all-electric Jaguar I-PACE Performance SUV. Inside, the driver-focused '1+1' cabin envelops the occupants with luxurious materials such as Sienna Tan Windsor Leather, Suedecloth, Alcantara, and satin-finish Noble Chrome, while Jaguar's craftsmanship is embodied in beautiful details such as monogram stitching on the seats and door trim. These touches blend seamlessly with the new 12.3-inch reconfigurable HD TFT instrument cluster and Touch Pro infotainment system. Form follows function, and one of a Jaguar's functions is to look beautiful. Evolved from its predecessor's World Car Design-winning form, the new F-Type's breath-taking looks are characterised by the super-slim Pixel LED headlights, which enhance the car's purposeful, confident stance.
