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.Published 5 April 2012
