(MENAFN - Muscat Daily) The new F-Type Coup is the most dynamically capable, performance- focused, production Jaguar ever. ''The F-TYPE Coup provides its driver with a unique sports car experience. It combines seductive design with cutting- edge technology and performance which is truly breathtaking. 

Engaging, precise, intuitive and alive “ it is the definitive sports coup,'' said Phil Popham, group marketing director, Jaguar Land Rover The all-aluminium F-Type- Coup “ the most dynamically capable, performance-focused sports car that Jaguar has ever produced “ is available in three versions “ F-F-Type R, F-FType S and the F-F-Type. The range-topping F-Type R Coup is powered by Jaguar's 5lt supercharged V8 engine in 550PS/680Nm tune, delivering acceleration to 60mph in 4.1 seconds, and a top speed of 186mph (electronically limited).

The F-Type S Coup and FType Coup are powered by Jaguar's 3lt V6 supercharged petrol engines in 380PS/460Nm and 340PS/450Nm forms respectively, giving 0-60mph in 4.8/5.1-seconds and top speeds of 171/161mph. The F-Type Coup embodies the uncompromised design vision of the stunning Jaguar CX16 concept sports Coup that debuted at the 2011 Frankfurt Motor Show, its dramatic cabinrearward stance being defined by three heartlines.

The first two heartlines “ shared with F-Type Convertible “ form the muscular front and rear wings, the third heartline being the sweeping Coup roof profile which provides an unbroken silhouette while emphasising the visual drama of the tapered cabin sitting between powerful rear haunches. Jaguar's expertise in aluminium technology has enabled the design vision for the F-Type Coup to be delivered in a lightweight yet extremely strong bodyshell.

Torsional rigidity for all F-Type Coup variants is 33,000Nm/degree “ greater than in any previous production Jaguar “ this rigidity providing the basis for excellent dynamic attributes. The F-Type Coup's body side is made from a single piece aluminium pressing, probably the most extreme cold-formed aluminium body side in the automotive industry, eliminating the requirement for multiple panels and cosmetic joints. The roof panel itself is available in either aluminium or panoramic glass form.

A deployable rear spoiler sits within the tapered shut-line of the F-Type Coup, while slim, wrap-around LED lamps flank a beautifully engineered tailgate, with optional powered open/close functionality. To deliver assured, progressive handling in line with its 550PS output, the range-topping F-Type R Coup features a bespoke suspension set-up and new dynamic technologies.

These include a second-generation Electronic Active Differential (EAD) and “ for the first time on a Jaguar “ Torque Vectoring by braking, these systems working in parallel to provide immediacy of response and exploitable handling. The EAD system automatically redistributes engine torque between the rear wheels to ensure excellent on-the-limit control, while Torque Vectoring by braking intelligently applies precisely metered braking force to the inner wheels as necessary during cornering to enhance agility. Sports suspension with Adaptive Dynamics damping and Configurable Dynamic Mode further enhance the FTYPE R's immediacy of response, providing an exhilarating and involving driving experience.

F-TYPE R and F-Type S Coup models also have the option of Carbon Ceramic Matrix (CCM) brakes which offer absolute consistency of performance and excellent fade resistance, as well as a total unsprung-weight saving of 21kg. Every F-Type Coup model utilises Jaguar's eight-speed close-ratio Quickshift transmission which is optimised for sporting performance, with full manual sequential control from the central SportShift selector or steering wheel-mounted paddles.

The F-Type Coup range complements the existing threecar F-Type Convertible model line-up; the V6-engined F-Type (340PS) and F-Type S (380PS), and the 495PS F-Type V8 S. ''With F-Type Coup, the Jaguar engineering team has exceeded our considerable target of building a car that delivers even more driver reward than the acclaimed F-Type Convertible. Engineering an exceptionally rigid all-aluminium Coup body structure was the key to achieving this, as it's the fundamental basis for enhanced dynamic attributes.

The result is that the F-Type Coup is the most dynamically capable and involving Jaguar we've ever built, '' said, Ian Hoban, vehicle line director, Jaguar. Visual appeal is fundamental to Jaguar and, as such, the FType Coup is immediately recognisable, building on the design of the stunning C-X16 concept sports Coup and the F-Type convertible “ winner of the 2013 World Car Design of the Year award.

''Creating a sports Coup is the purest of design tasks, and also the most challenging; get it right and aesthetically the result will be as dynamic as the car should be rewarding to drive. In F-Type Coup, I believe we've got it right. The purity of the CX16 concept has been retained without compromise; the FTYPE Coup's long bonnet, low roofline and tapering cabin inspires me every time I see it,'' Ian Callum, director of design, Jaguar The F-Type Coup visual message is defined by three key heartlines', that visual message beginning with the formidable grille.

It is from the twin shark gill' openings that sit either side of the grille that the essential first heartline “ which mirrors the design of the F-Type Convertible “ flows and begins to take shape. Running up through the headlamp, and accentuated by the LED J blade' daylight running lamps, the line then arcs up over the front wheelarch before dropping elegantly as it runs through the door, washing out into the muscular rear haunch.

The Coup's second heartline, also shared with the Convertible, begins at the rear edge of the door, swelling outwards and upwards to create a visually strong wheelarch, emphasising the car's rear-wheel drive layout, before dropping vertically through the tail lamp. The third heartline forms the Coup's dramatic, cabin-rearward, sweeping roof profile. Providing an unbroken silhouette, it highlights the visual drama of the tapered cabin nestled between the powerful rear haunches.

The distinctive side window graphic, finished as standard in bright aluminium, accentuates both the compactness of the car and the roof profile. Jaguar's expertise in aluminium vehicle architecture has been essential in enabling both the F-TYPE Coup's uncompromised design aesthetic, while delivering the fundamental dynamic attributes “ essential to any sports car “ of low mass and an extremely rigid body. Measuring 33,000 Nm/degree, the FTYPE Coup
