Rally-prep Jaguar F-Type is the sportscar we should all want

Rally-prep Jaguar F-Type is the sportscar we should all want

Jaguar, as a part of its 70th anniversary celebrations, has built two special F-Type convertibles, making thoroughbred rally cars out of the chic convertible supercars. With an open roof, a roll-over cage, a raised suspension that can take any kind of battering you can think of and the power going to the right set of wheels, this car has us dreamy eyed like a kid in a candy store.

The rally-prepped F-Types have been built as a tribute to Jaguar’s motorsport heritage that was marked by the XK120 which made its debut in 1948. And these cars have been built to FIA-specifications prescribed for rally cars. It is powered by the 2.0-litre turbocharged petrol that develops a shade under 300bhp of power and is the rear-wheel drive bliss all enthusiasts would want around a dirt track.

The F-Type is a perfectly balanced road car and has been raised 40mm with custom-built rally suspension for its off-road duties. Even the fancy alloys have made way for the motorsport-spec wheels and chunky tyres while the exposed roll-cage is pure in-your-face bravado. While the interiors have been stripped of the unnecessary comforters, it gets racing bucket seats with six-point harnesses adhering to the FIA regulations. The light pod on the hood, the carbon-fibre tipped hydraulic hand-brake and a fancy paint job completes the rally-car look.

Sadly, there seems to be no word of these F-Types competing over a race weekend. But if you are wealthy enough, you could certainly have one commissioned from the Special Vehicle Operations division. Garage goals eh?
