2013 Jaguar F-Type starts from $69,000 (US)

 2013 Jaguar F-Type starts from $69,000 (US)
2013 Jaguar F-Type

Considerably cheaper than it is in UK.

After making its public debut at the 2012 Paris Motor Show, Jaguar has decided to put a price tag on the F-Type which will be available in the United States starting at $69,000, not taking into consideration the $875 destination and charging fee. There’s also an online configurator available for those that want to start building their own F-Type.

This price available in the United States is considerably lower in comparison to what UK buyers will have to pay as over there it will cost 58,500 pounds ($94,400 or 73,200 euros), making it more expensive than the V8-powered version sold in the U.S.

That $69,000 price is for the base model fitted with the supercharged V6 3.0-liter engine with 335 hp (250 kW), while the F-Type S with 375 hp (280 kW) will set you back $81,000. For $92,000 you can get the F-Type V8 S flagship variant that provides 488 hp (364 kW). None of these prices include the handling and destination fee.

Guys look at the specs again. This Monster is a 911-killer that is priced 20% less than the equivalently specced and performing 911. Look at the specs of a Boxster and it doesnt hold a flame to this. Read this excerpt "The Aston is, in most cases, the most expensive car in this group. The cheapest Aston Martin V8 Vantage Roadster will set you back £96,274. The version with the Sportshift automatic transmission goes for £101,273. The flagship V8 Vantage S is pricier still – Aston Martin charging a further £10,000 for a tiny boost in horsepower and torque. It may be increasingly common on city streets but the people riding around in them have deep pockets. The cheapest Porsche 911 Carrera Cabriolet can be bought for a fairly reasonable £79,947. The slightly faster Carrera S Cabriolet, meanwhile, goes for £89,740, which is still cheaper than the lowliest Aston. You could bag yourself a four-wheel-drive Carrera 4 S, which offers superior grip and traction, and still have change left over for a small family hatchback for the cash needed to buy an Vantage. The Jaguar puts both its rivals to shame where price is concerned. The entry-level car, which isn't exactly slow, let's remember, costs a mere £58,500 – £20,000 less than its nearest rival. The mid-range F-Type S goes for £67,500 and the top cat F-Type V8 S retails for just under £80,000, the same price as an entry-level 911 Carrera. And it's faster." This reminds me of the original E type which when launched in Geneva in 1961 put to shame all its supercar rivals which costed more than twice of the E types sticker. Even Enzo ferrari came up and called it "The most beautiful car ever made."

I wouldn't necessarily go as far as calling this a 911 killer, since first off all; Carrera weights considerably less than F-type. And it packs more horsepower without even a need for superchargers which will probably end up costing you more money in the long run since it makes you engine more complicated. Plus 911 has a proven pedigree of being a great handling sports car, what kind of pedigree does this model have compared to 911?!

you can't compare a grand touring roadster to a sports car

wouw calling any jag any porsche "killer" needs some balls, especially today, when the 991 carrera s model (which is far beyond the fastest 911) does the nurburgring faster than the present 997 911 Turbo. So: slowest 911 probably faster than fastest F type. In this case, it is completely normal to have a higher price with the 911 and the sales would be the proof that the car is worth it.

I would never even consider this next to a 911. To my ears it is a bit like comparing the Jaguar with a Saturn Sky Red Line. All three are great sports cars but each one is a world apart from the next one.

Anon23, get your hand off it. If you're willing to make some assumptions based on non existent evidence, then I have something you might be interested. Have you heard of cold fusion?......

Correct me if i'm wrong but don't usually listed prices for cars in the UK and most of the EU already include the 20% vat? So it's more like 75,520$US, a whole 6520$ more. But of course taxes in the US are an average of 7.14% so it would still come in at 73,926.60$ with tax, excluding dealer fees and delivery which would be another 3000$ roughly and you're at 77,000$ give or take a few $. Seems like the biggest difference is the tax.

I think Tata has lost it's mind...that $69,000 should be for the top end model not the entry level. I was looking forward to this car but the price and the miata-on-steriods looks has left me cold...for that price I want an Alfa Romeo entry level coupe. The Alfa will come with carbon fibre and look like a sexy-miata-on-steriods.

first of all, the article is ablut the price of the F type in the US. So you can't buy an alfa because the only one you can buy in here is the 8C. Secondly, you can't compare a Jag with an alfa. Almost the lowest cost jag is more expensive than the highest cost alfa (exception of 8C also). and thirdly, $69,000 for a 488hp newly designed cabrio jag would make people to on the queu.

No, according to the article that's $69,000 for a supercharged V6 that produces only 335hp. If you want 488hp V8, you gotta pay premium of $23,000 more.

Yes Dbaskov that's my point, autoficianado says that 69k should be for the top model which is the one having 488hp. 69k for a newly designed cabrio jag f type would make people wait at the queu..

Considering the dodge viper is $97k makes this seem good value. Its a premium product so was always going to cost around this figure. It's roughly inline with what a Porsche booster ( it's main rival) would cost. Now all they need is a 240 Bhp 2Ltr inline four turbo ( probably a ecoboost) to start the range at roughly 50 to 55k. Only thing confusing me is why they have a f-type v8 S and not a f-type v8 R

Running the range from $70k-100k USD is a huge missed opportunity here. It should exist from $45k-$85k USD. That gives it enough space to compete with the high end of the "compact roadster" market as well as the premium end. They should have been aiming for Z4 and SLK with the range centred around $70k, rather than starting there.

I'm also baffled as to why the V8 S/C model is not the 'R'!
