The Jaguar F-Type was first introduced to the Philippines in October 2013 at the Jaguar Lifestyle Centre in Bonifacio Global City. It was offered in one variant which is the F-TYPE V8 S Petrol.
The F-Type is known for its sharp and slender design, featuring Jaguar’s design philosophy of merging athleticism with sheer luxury. Its smooth and streamlined contours emphasize its muscular stance while promoting aerodynamics.

Staying true to the brand’s principle of creating striking, detailed designs, the F-Types side power vents feature the iconic Jaguar leaper engraved on the trims. Completing the look are 20-inch alloy wheels.
Inside the F-Type is a heavily driver-oriented cockpit designed with comfort in mind. It features intuitive and easy to reach controls convenient for fast-paced driving. The sports seats are fully adjustable and can adapt to any preference. Following the exterior’s styling, it features a sporty aesthetic with a slew of premium materials. The crafted and clutter-free interior is decked in leather, suede, and metal accents. Further refining the styling are subtle details such as the Jaguar leaper, are woven around F-Type’s cabin.
