F-TYPE S and V8 S models are fitted wîth Jaguar's Adaptive Dynamics system that actively controls vertical body movement, roll and pitch rates. The system continuously monitors driver inputs and the attitude of the F-TYPE on the road, adjusting damper rates accordingly up to 500 times a second to optimise stability and agility. The presence of the Adaptive Dynamics system also allows the F-TYPE S and V8 S to offer a Dynamic Mode wîth greater functionality for even more focused driving, as in these models it also offers enhanced body control through firmer damping rates.
A Configurable Dynamics option is another first for a Jaguar. This allows the driver to select which elements of the Dynamic Mode are required so, for instance, the steering weight and throttle response can be sharpened while allowing the ride to remain unchanged.
Configurable Dynamics also adds functionality to the central touchscreen aimed at track use of the car. The system allows drivers to record lap and split times and will provide information on throttle and brake inputs and even G-forces generated.
This is some serious features that Jaguar has incorporated in to the new F Type to make it more of a driver's car rather than just focusing on style and beauty.
