Jaguar has confirmed to unveil the production ready version of the new F-Type sports car at the 2012 Paris Motor Show, in September. Earlier this year, the Tata owned luxury brand confirmed development of an all-new sports car christen F-Type; successor to the legendary Jaguar E-Type. The pre-production version of the two-seater convertible, made its public debut at the Goodwood Festival of Speed – unfortunately in full camouflage. The wait is now over with announcement from JLR that the final product will break-cover in Paris, on 27 September.
The Jaguar F-Type is a two seat, soft-top convertible sports car with engine feeding power to the rear wheels. The car will be launched with a choice of three engines: 340PS and 380PS versions of Jaguar’s all-new 3.0-litre supercharged V6, and a new derivative of its existing supercharged 5.0-litre V8. The power will be transferred through an eight-speed transmission and will be equipped with Stop/Start technology.
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 sports car 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 sports car 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.”
