Jaguar’s all-new two-seat sportscar, the F-Type, will make its global debut in production form at the Paris motor show in September, 2012. The F-type was first previewed as the C-X16 concept at the Frankfurt motor show last September.
The F-Type will be launched as a convertible with a choice of three petrol engines – a 335bhp and a 375bhp version of Jaguar’s all-new 3.0-litre supercharged V6, as well as a new derivative of its existing supercharged 5.0-litre V8. These engines will come mated to an eight-speed transmission.
Adrian Hallmark, global brand director, Jaguar Cars, said, “The unveiling of the F-Type in Paris will be a truly significant day in Jaguar’s history as it will mark the company’s return to the sportscar market, a market it originally helped to create. As its sporting forebears did in their era, the F-Type will break new ground by delivering stunning sportscar performance, while vividly demonstrating Jaguar’s cutting-edge engineering technologies and world-class design excellence. The next step in Jaguar’s sporting bloodline is about to become reality.”
