I am very keen on Jaguars. Who's with e in this? Well, this time I am going to tell you the story of this F-Type Convertible, which has received some special attention from the specialists at KW Automotive. Yes, this means better handling and driving dynamics (if that's possible) for this Jaguar. The classic design of the car has been inspired by the legendary models in company's line-up.
The engine range of this unique (in my opinion) car features two units, the 3.0 liter V6 with two output variants of 340HP (250 kW) and 380HP (280 kW), and the highly acclaimed 5.0-litre V8 boasting 495HP (364 kW) and 625Nm (463 lb-ft) of torque.
The 340HP V6 version accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h in 5.3 seconds and has a top speed of 260 km/h (161 mph), while the 380HP model covers this sprint in 4.9 seconds on its way to a Vmax of 275 km/h (171 mph). The V8 is even more capable, it reaches the 100 km/h in 4.3 seconds and its top speed is electronically limited at 300 km/h (186 mph).
These numbers basically showed KW Automotive specialists that the Jaguar needed better suspension. Therefore they have developed new coilover kits for the model which feature independent compression and rebound damping adjustment.
Precisely, for this Jaguar F-Type convertible they have added the stainless steel KW Variant 3 coilover suspension kit, which not only increases driving dynamics, but also allows for continuously adjustable lowering of up to 35 mm.
Height-adjustable spring kit is also an option hear. Unlike other conventional lowering springs, this KW kit allows individual lowering from 5 to 25 mm on the front axle and from 10 to 30 mm on the rear axle. So this means enough free spring travel available for the F-Type's sporty behavior.
