2013 Jaguar F Type Active Exhaust System

Both the V6 and V8 S models are fitted as standard wth an Active Exhaust system (which is optional on the 340PS model). This takes the aural excitement delivered by the F-TYPE to new levels, utilising a number of electronically controlled bypass valves in the rear section of the exhaust which open under hard acceleration to enhance sound quality, effectively altering the exhaust gas routing into a free-flowing straight-through arrangement.

Carefully developed though more than 85 iterations, the Active Exhaust offers an authentic, rich sound, developing to a howling crescendo as the upper limits of the rev range are reached. In addition to the bypass valves opening under load they can be instructed to open full-time by selecting Dynamic Mode using the Jaguar Drive Controller - which also optimises throttle response, gearchange, teering and suspension systems - or via an optional override button.

In order to ensure the driver gains maximum benefit from the system, the acoustic tuning in the rear of the car allows more of the exhaust noise to be heard in the cabin. An Intake Feedback System allows the driver to also experience what is occurring within the intake manifold, which is particularly exciting when combined wth the scream of the supercharger spooling up to speed.
