Jaguar_F-Type_Paris_2012_7

Jaguar has launched the F-Type in India, priced at an insane Rs. 1.37 crore for the V6 S and Rs. 1.61 crore for the V8 S (no base V6 on offer). ¬†Jaguar has almost confused Indians with the F-Type’s pricing as the 2-seater sportscar costs more than the XK in the country.

To put it into perspective, check out the Indian pricing of the F-Type and its competitors in US Dollar (converted as per today’s exchange rate 1$ = Rs. 59.80/-). The prices are in ascending order and on-road Mumbai, inclusive of registration and insurance charges.

    A little insane.

    Its somewhere between the Boxster and Carrera here in Australia
    Boxster: $100,000
    F-Type: $140,000
    911: $205,000

    Surprising they get the Ferrari 458 so cheap – its over $700,000 in Australia. Likewise with the Aston Martin V8 Vantage – Priced low compared to its competitors (and not far off AU pricing).

    I thought the Indians got ripped off but boy, do Aussies get screwed or what

    Wow, I just spent the last hour playing with the Canadian configurator and the V8S, equipped with the most expensive options tops out at $119,622.00 $US

    The local dealer still has none in stock, but we’re going to try for a test drive once inventory arrives.

    Show up in the wife’s Bimmer, and we may get a shot at a test drive. Show up in my decade old Ranger, and we’ll be escorted off the lot!

    V6 S is more than a AM V8 Vantage? Good luck with that. Our local dealers have a couple and while the V8 S is a fun car with a raucous soundtrack, it’s barely pushing past $100K with options (nipping at a base 911 Cab, which is appropriate I feel). I can’t believe they would attempt to convince customers that it bests a R8 5.2 roadster.

    Uh, shouldn’t the new model cost more? Seems we get our rides for less in the good old USA.

    Jaguar has the F-type based priced at $69,000 to $92,000… plus options.

    F-Type > $69,000

    F-Type-’S’ > $81,000

    F-Type V8 ‘S’ > $92,000

    I don’t understand this car. Why didn’t they just make the XK smaller?

    Maybe JLR India is trying to make the F-type its “halo” model in India or maybe India is getting a very limited supply of the F-type so they think they can get away with the “upcharge.”

    How about breaking down these prices for those of us in the bleachers? What does the actual car cost, vs. the taxes and fees and whatever? I am assuming that a HUGE portion of those prices is tax, I can’t imagine JLR is making multiples of the profit they make on the car elsewhere. And relatively speaking, how is the exchange rate to the dollar? Assume rather bad at the moment, as the dollar is quite weak worldwide.

    I realize we get cars a lot cheaper than many places in the states, but our prices include NOTHING beyond the actual price of the car. In my state you can add another 7.5% tax, plus several hundred minimum in fees, another couple hundred for registration, and another bunch of cash for insurance that varies wildly by who you are and where you live.

      I think its entirely possible they’re making profits in the 100% and higher region.

      In Australia, the manufacturer RRP for the F-Type is $120,500.
      Dealer fees $5,000 (hundreds of dollars is a bargain, BMW/Merc/Audi are ~$3000).
      Luxury Car Tax (30% of everything over $60,000) is another $20,000.
      Insurance and other taxes – $7260.

      So as you can see, even the base model before tax is already much more than your V8 after on-roads and taxes.

      I think its a combination of high taxes and manufacturers ripping people with some money off.

      The prices I mentioned are inclusive of taxes, insurance, registration, etc. It’s the final price you pay. Every car of the same price bracket is charged a similar amount. That is why, I have given other car prices are reference.

    No taxes in Oregon, sticker plus shipping, plus options, is the cost.
