2015 Jaguar F-Type Coupe gets all-wheel-drive option
Jaguar have just announced the F-Type Coupe will come in all-wheel drive as well from next year. It will make its official debut at the 2014 LA Auto Show this month.
Jaguar claims the AWD F-Type Coupe R, which has a 550 hp 5.0-litre supercharged engine, can do the 0-100 kph run in 4.1 seconds, which is slightly faster than the the rear-wheel drive version. Top speed is electronically limited to 300 kph.
The model range of the F-Type Coupe is also said to expand from 6 to 14 variants next year Jaguar confirms.
Jaguar also announced its collaboration with the British World Land Speed Record Team. The technological partnership between Jaguar and The Bloodhound Project aims to establish a land speed record of more than 1,609 kph in 2016 to beat the current record of 1,227 kph established back in 1997 by Andy Green in a Thrust SSC, who will also be driving the Bloodhound Supersonic car.
There is no confirmation yet if the AWD Jaguar F-Type Coupe will be available in the UAE, Saudi Arabia and other GCC countries.
