Jaguar South Africa has announced pricing for the recently facelifted F-Type, with the local range set to comprise eight variants at launch.

The SA line-up has been rationalised from some 24 derivatives to just eight, with all manual models falling away (eight-speed automatic transmissions thus ship standard). The 250 kW P340-badged variants have also been cut, as have the SVR flagships.

The range kicks off with the P300 in R-Dynamic trim, offered in both coupé (from R1 188 140) and convertible (from R1 186 240) guise. These variants employ a turbocharged 2,0-litre, four-cylinder petrol engine offering the rear axle an unchanged 221 kW and 400 N.m.

Next up is the P380 R-Dynamic (priced from R1 451 000 for the coupé and R1 449 200 for the soft-top), with its supercharged 3,0-litre V6 directing 280 kW and 460 N.m to the rear wheels. Then there’s the all-paw version of the P380, available in "First Edition" form and likewise in coupé (R1 590 712) and convertible (R1 584 512) body styles.

At the summit of the range you’ll find the all-wheel-drive F-Type R (R2 325 049 for the coupé and R2 323 449 for the soft-top), complete with a supercharged 5,0-litre V8 offering 423 kW and 700 N.m (up from the 405 kW and 680 N.m generated by the pre-facelift model). That’s enough, says the automaker, for a sprint to 100 km/h in 3,7 seconds (down four-tenths) and an electronically limited top speed of 300 km/h.

The R-badged F-Type employs what Jaguar calls a “comprehensively uprated chassis” with wider, 20-inch wheels and new adaptive dampers, springs, anti-roll bars and stiffer rear knuckles and ball joints. The transmission, too, has been “recalibrated” for snappier shifts.
