Ridin’ In Style With Leruo Mophuting
Type, a noun referring to a category of people or things having common characteristics. If you are the “type” that likes the adrenaline rush that comes from power coupled with excessive speed, yet still savour the “man and machine connection”, or the ilk that desires to drive cars so that everyone knows how much you can afford, then 2018 jaguar F-Type could be the car for you. Pardon the pun.
From first glance, you will certainly appreciate the beauty of this machine and its well defined lines that accentuate its bold and aggressive stance, which I might add nicely complement the spritely coupe chassis. The lithe F-Type comes with a choice of 19 or 20 inch wheels, LED headlights (with daytime running lights), a chrome-plated, dual centre exhaust, which all accessorise it’s bold racing credentials. The F-type is Jaguar’s only two-door car, and also the sportiest and quickest vehicle in the British automaker’s range.
The 8 speed automatic coupe is available in a choice of a 2.0 litre turbocharged four cylinder engine (that gives out a hefty 296 horsepower) or one of three supercharged V6 (that boosts all the way up to 340 horsepower),which is lightning fast, and just as responsive with razor sharp handling around bends and curvy roads thanks to the new driver assist safety feature. Jaguar also upped the ante by adding other safety features to the F-Type including Autonomous Emergency braking, lane keep assist, traffic sign recognition and the driver condition monitor that can detect if the driver is tired.
True to form, the exceptional finish of the interior is the icing on the cake. It boasts 12 way power adjustable leather race car like seats that are really comfortable (even in long distances), hidden automatic air vents (that pop up when needed) and a regal, leather trimmed dash, accentuated with black-brushed aluminium that wraps around an easy to use 8 inch InControl Touch Pro infotainment system. This version features a faster processor with a GoPro connectivity feature called ReRun (an App that can record data from the cars acceleration, gear selection and braking position that can be downloaded onto your Smartphone.) A navigation system that has a pin-and-snap map zooming capability sets you off nicely on your journey.
The 2018 Jaguar F-Type has certainly made a mark as one of the most stunning cars in its range, delivering both styling and impressive performance. It oozes appeal and commands a respect worthy enough to be heralded by Jaguar’s signature growl and an exhaust pop that is sure to turn heads because in this coupe, you are everyone’s type.
