Originally unveiled at the Paris Motor Show back in September 2012 the Jaguar F-TYPE soon became Jaguars flagship sports car.
To acknowledge its original creation and to promote models such as the Project 7, AWD, Manual and SVR versions the F-Type Enthusiasts Club (F-TypeEC) was formed in May 2014.
So whether you own a V6, V8, S, R, AWD, Manual, SVR, Project 7, 400 Sport, coupe or convertible we simply cater for all. We bring together an international community of F-TYPE owners and enthusiasts and allow them to enjoy their car(s) and club membership to the full.
On Saturday 24th June 2017 we held our clubs first ever Open Day & Charity Event at our club HQ in Northfleet, Kent. Twenty-five cars attended the event. The day gave members the opportunity to look around the office and its surroundings and to enjoy a great family day out meeting other members and their cars. More importantly the whole day helped raise charity money for the Darent Valley Cancer Fighting Fund.
With food and drink laid on all day as well as club merchandise on show and a number of other craft stands selling items such as jewellery, handbags, scarves, framed prints etc there was lots to see and do.
Although money is still coming it appears we have raised somewhere around £1,800 for the charity so a big thank you to everyone who came along and supported this event.
A special thanks goes out to all the companies who kindly donated some great prizes for the on-line auction and our raffle and to our Guest Speaker Peter Leake who gave a couple of superb presentations on the Jaguar Le Mans racing years. Thanks also to THE EAST KENT CHORUS QUARTET, a local group who sing in the Barbershop style who provided some very joyful afternoon entertainment.

Jaguar have released pictures and details of the new and exclusive 400 SPORT launch edition. Offered worldwide but for one model year only, the 400 SPORT features an uprated version of the supercharged 3.0-litre V6 with maximum power increased from 380PS to 400PS.
Customers will be able to choose between rear- and all-wheel drive to suit their preferred driving style, and all models benefit from the eight-speed Quickshift transmission and mechanical limited-slip differential.
Distinctive Yellow and Dark Satin Grey 400 SPORT badges on the front and rear hint at the 400PS beneath the clamshell bonnet and perfectly complement the choice of Indus Silver, Santorini Black or Yulong White paint. The car's perfect proportions are enhanced with the Sport Design Pack comprising a more prominent front splitter, extended side sills and rear diffuser finished in sleek Dark Satin Grey.
The extra power is complemented by an uprated chassis comprising Super Performance braking system featuring 380mm front and 376mm rear discs and black calipers with 400 SPORT logo, 20-inch wheels with unique Dark Grey Satin finish and the Configurable Dynamics system which allows drivers to select individual settings for the throttle, transmission, steering and dampers.
The cabin benefits from the same attention to detail. Yellow contrast stitching is used throughout the premium leather interior, and the 400 SPORT logo is embroidered into the headrests of the slimline Performance seats with 12-way adjustment. Additional 400 SPORT branding is applied to the flat-bottomed steering wheel, black brushed aluminium centre console finisher and the sill treadplates. Anodised aluminium gearshift paddles are another highlight of the driver-focused cockpit.
Jaguar is broadening the appeal of the new F-TYPE with the introduction of the state-of-the-art four-cylinder Ingenium petrol engine. The award winning F-TYPE family now spans from the entry-level four-cylinder model to Jaguar’s 200mph all-weather supercar – the F-TYPE SVR.
The pairing of Jaguar’s all-aluminium two-seat sports car with the advanced 300PS 2.0-litre turbocharged powerplant delivers Jaguar sports car DNA with enhanced agility and improved efficiency and affordability. This is a true F-TYPE, with its own unique character.
The new model retains the performance expected from the F-TYPE, and can accelerate from 0-60mph in only 5.4 seconds and achieve a top speed of 155mph. The turbocharged engine’s high maximum torque of 400Nm, generated from just 1,500rpm, together with the eight-speed Quickshift transmission, delivers exceptional response throughout the rev range.
Not only is the 300PS Ingenium engine the most powerful four-cylinder unit ever offered in a production Jaguar, it also generates the highest specific power output of any engine in the F-TYPE range: 150PS per litre. It also makes this the most efficient F-TYPE in the range, with a 16 per cent improvement in fuel economy over the 340PS V6, together with CO2 emissions of just 163g/km on the European combined cycle.
Our club HQ is located within a high spec office accommodation within the Old Rectory in Northfleet, Kent.

Equipped with all the latest technology it provides a very welcoming Reception area, first class meeting room and a comfortable breakout area. The great thing as well is that it also offers free car parking to all visitors.
