The new 2016 model year Jaguar F-TYPE R all-wheel drive (AWD) range plus Jaguar F Type Six-speed manual transmission option for rear-wheel drive Jaguar F Type supercharged V6 models goes on sale from Spring 2015
• F-TYPE, Jaguar’s definitive full-size sports car, receives new powertrain and driveline options to broaden the range from six to 14 models
• Torque on demand Jaguar F Type all-wheel drive (AWD) extends the F-TYPE’s performance and dynamic capability on all road surfaces and in all conditions
• In AWD form, the 550PS Jaguar F-TYPE R Coupé will accelerate from 0-60mph in 3.9 seconds, with a limited top speed of 186mph
• Jaguar F Type R Intelligent Driveline Dynamics (IDD) control strategy developed in-house to exploit maximum performance potential of AWD traction while retaining rear-wheel drive character
• AWD Jaguar F-TYPE models gain a unique bonnet design featuring a deeper power bulge and distinctive new vents
• Jaguar F Type Six-speed manual transmission option for rear-wheel drive supercharged V6 models delivers the purest sports car driving experience
• Jaguar’s 550PS supercharged V8 comes to the Jaguar F-TYPE R Convertible – available in both rear- and all-wheel drive configurations
• Electric Power Assisted Steering enables even greater precision and feel and reduces Jaguar F Type CO2 emissions by up to 4g/km on the EU combined cycle
• Torque Vectoring by Braking improves agility and – standard on Jaguar F Type R derivatives – is now available on V6 models
• Sport Design Packs for Jaguar F Type Coupé and Jaguar F Type Convertible models enhance exterior styling and enable greater personalisation

• The new 2016 model year Jaguar F Type range goes on sale from Spring 2015
The enhancements broaden the Jaguar F Type range to 14 models, from the new 340PS Jaguar F Type Coupé and Jaguar F Type Convertible with the Jaguar F Type supercharged V6 driving the rear wheels through a manual gearbox, to the 550PS Jaguar F Type R Coupé and Convertible with the supercharged Jaguar F Type V8, Jaguar F Type AWD and Jaguar F Type eight-speed Quickshift transmission. Transmitting the V8’s 680Nm to the road though all four wheels helps the Jaguar F Type R 0 to 60mph in just 3.9 seconds on the way to a Jaguar F Type R top speed of 186mph. Integrating AWD required only subtle changes to the F-TYPE’s acclaimed styling – a prerequisite which Jaguar’s design and engineering teams worked side by side to achieve – and the enhancements give AWD F-TYPEs even more presence.
The Jaguar F Type aluminium clamshell bonnet gains a deeper central power bulge. Either side are distinctive new vents, positioned further apart and further forward than those of rear-wheel drive F-TYPEs. AWD V6 models also feature unique 19-inch Volution alloy wheels in either silver or diamond-turned Technical Grey.
From behind the wheel drivers will quickly notice the extra dimension that Jaguar F Type AWD adds to performance, handling and road holding in all conditions – and especially on slippery road surfaces.
The Jaguar F Type AWD system features Intelligent Driveline Dynamics (IDD), a control system designed and developed in-house to exploit the maximum benefits of AWD without any compromise to Jaguar dynamics DNA. IDD is networked to the powertrain, rear differential and centre coupling and Dynamic Stability Control (DSC) system to provide optimum torque distribution.
Bloodhound SSC is a supersonic land vehicle currently in development. Its goal is to attain a 1,000 miles per hour (1,609 km/h) world land speed record. The team aims to break the land speed record with the pencil-shaped car, powered by a jet engine and a rocket designed to reach 1,000 miles per hour (1,609 km/h) together with a petrol engine auxiliary power unit. It is being developed and built with the intention of breaking the land speed record by 33%, the largest ever margin.
Runway testing of up to 200 miles per hour (320 km/h) is scheduled to take place early 2015. Bloodhound SSC will then be tested on the Hakskeen Pan in the Mier area of the Northern Cape, South Africa where a track 12 miles (19 km) long, 2 miles (3.2 km) wide has been cleared
