The Jaguar F-Type

Jaguar F-Type

Jaguar has confirmed that their new sports car will be called the F-TYPE, which naturally follows on from the iconic C-TYPE, D-TYPE and E-TYPE line-up.

The Jaguar F-TYPE is based on the C-X16 concept car shown to the public in September 2011 and will enter production later this year – with the first cars being delivered in mid 2013.

It will be built at Jaguar’s Castle Bromwich plant, where the engineering prototypes have been built and are undergoing finial road-testing and evaluation.

The all-aluminium Jaguar F-TYPE will be launched as a convertible, and a strict two-seater with the focus uncompromisingly on delivering driver reward. A range of petrol engines will be available – including a new engine line-up.

We will of course bring you a full assessment of the Jaguar F-TYPE which we expected to have a price of around 50,000, when we know more details later in the year – Jaguar’s future looks very promising especially with the introduction the XF Sportbrake.

This car is one of our first views of the F-type V8, equipped with the same 5.0-litre lump you’ll find in an XF, XJ or XK. Note the quad pipes, a pair of exhausts nestling on either side of the rear valance with a deep recessed diffuser effect gap in the middle.

The twin-exhaust F-types, as revealed publicly by Jaguar in their own ‘studio spyshots’, with a centre-exit layout is the new 3.0-litre V6.

The F-type roadster arrives first in spring/summer 2013, followed by an F-type coupe roughly a year later.

It’s a new kind of Jaguar sports car to slot between the Porsche Cayman/Boxster duo and the 911, according to Jaguar. Cue a 55,000 estimated price point and the choice of a new 3.0-litre V6 in 340 or 375bhp tune, or a 5.0-litre V8 (no power outputs have been announced yet).
