Jaguar announces the launch of the F-Type


Jaguar has confirmed that it will bring the production version of the C-X16 Concept. The British marquee has christened the model as the F-Type. 

The F-Type will initially be launched as a convertible, and shall be a strict two-seater.The F-Type will join Jaguar's existing range of cars – the XF, XJ and XK. Complete F-Type technical and range details will be announced later in 2012 and as we predicted it will go on sale in mid 2013.A range of petrol engines will be available – including a new powerplant family – which could be the supercharged 3.0-litre we had mentioned.

The F-Type's will be built at the Castle Bromwich plant. The convertible will come in first, followed by the coupe in 2014. One feature that won't be carried from the C-X16 will be the side opening tailgate. To improve the practicality of the sportscar, Jaguar decided to stick with the convetnional boot.

Ian Callum, Director of Design, said: "A true sports car needs to be pure in both its purpose and its form; to have the opportunity to produce such a car for Jaguar has been a privilege both for myself and for my team. The C-type, D-type and E-type Jaguars were all sports cars that held true to this principle in their era, and the F-TYPE will hold true to that same principle in its time, a time that is soon to arrive."
