Jaguar has given Britain’s favourite sportscar range a thorough spring cleaning, freshening up the F-Type’s looks, adding a special launch edition model available for one year only, and giving all variants an infotainment boost – including the debut of the new ReRun phone app for making your own driving videos.
The app works in conjunction with Jaguar’s superfast connectivity infotainment system, Touch Pro, which is now standard on all F-Types. ReRun enables real-time video from a GoPro camera to be overlaid with data from the car, including speed, throttle position, gear selection, braking force, g-force and steering wheel angle. The system is operated by mobile phone and offers an editing function. “We are looking forward to seeing the first customer videos online,” says Adam Silver from GoPro.
As well as the tech boost, all 22 derivatives in the new F-Type lineup – from £51,450 340bhp coupe to £110,000 575bhp SVR model – come in for a facelift that centres on new LED lights and bespoke front bumper designs for the different versions. Changes inside include new slimline seats that weigh 8kg less than before and new chrome trim.
