The 2013 Jaguar F-Type

Build your 2013 Jaguar F-Type online now with preliminary pricing

Jaguar has launched the online configurator for the all new 2013 F-Type with three available trimlines and an incredible level of customization inside and out – including the base pricing for each of the three models but devoid of the option pricing as you build your dream Jag droptop.

When you first open the 2013 Jaguar F -Type build site, you are prompted to pick between the three available trimlines – the F-Type, the F-Type S and the F-Type V8 S. The base F-Type starts at $69,000 and features a supercharged 3.0L V6 packing 340 horsepower while the F-Type S uses the same engine but offers 380 horsepower and a starting price of $81,000. The top of the line Jaguar F-Type V8 S is powered by the 495 horsepower supercharged 5.0L V8 with the most powerful of the three new droptop Jag’s carrying a starting price of $92,000. All three models are equipped with an 8-speed QuickShift automatic transmission controlled by the console mounted shifter or the steering wheel mounted paddles and the prices above do not include the $875 destination fee.

Once you have selected which trimline of the 2013 Jaguar F-Type in the new build page, you are taken to a new screen where you can customize the exterior. The F-Type allows the shopper to pick from 13 different exterior colors (available in all three trims), 4 different convertible top colors (all four colors are not available with every exterior color) and a choice of wheels with base model and S buyers picking between five different wheel options while V8 S buyers get four options. The standard F-Type comes with 18” polished wheels along with an optional 19 and 20 inch wheels. The F-Type S comes with standard 19” polished wheels along with the same four sets of optional rims from the base model and the V8 S comes with standard 20” polished wheels along with an option of those same wheels in black along with the two different option 20” wheels offered with the base and S models. Finally, the exterior design area allows those buyers who are looking at the S and V8 S packages to select from either black or red brake calipers while entry level buyers do not have the option of the bright red stoppers.

As you can see in the image on the right, my ideal 2013 Jaguar F-Type would be a V8 S trimline in British Racing Green Metallic with a black top, black cyclone wheels (standard are polished cyclone wheels) and red brake calipers. There are a handful of great exterior color options but something just feels “right” about this new Jag in the vintage green racing hue.
