As expected, Jaguar brought to the 2012 LA Auto Show the F-Type Black Pack, a special package designed for its latest convertible that promises to make the car even more impressive. According to the press release, the Black Pack is available with Firesand, Ultimate Black, Polaris White, Italian Racing Red, Rhodium Silver and Satellite Grey body colours and just like its name says it, the vehicle features gloss black finishes on items such as the front grille surround, side power vents and roll hoops.
Inside, the Black Pack offers a flat-bottomed Sports steering wheel with black trim finisher, gloss black vent surrounds, new gloss black door switch surrounds and new gloss black instrument cluster dial rings.
Under the hood, the vehicle offers a choice of two engines, a V6 or a more powerful V8. The 3.0-liter V6 engine delivers 340 PS and pushes the F-Type from 0 to 60 mph (96 km/h) in 5.1 seconds (100 km/h in 5.2 seconds), all the way to a top speed electronically limited to 161mph (260km/h), while emitting just 209g/km of CO2.
The V6 engine can deliver 380 PS on the F-Type S model and sprints from 0 to 60 mpg (96 km/h) in 4.8 seconds (100 km/h in 4.9 seconds), while the top speed is electronically limited to 171mph (275km/h).
The mighty 5.0-liter V8 engine found on the F-Type V8 S model delivers 495 PS and 625 Nm of torque. With these numbers, the car accelerates from 0 to 60 mph (96 km/h) in 4.2 seconds (100 km/h in 4.3 seconds) and has a top speed electronically limited to 186mph (300km/h).
