The F-Type recently appeared in a public drive at the Goodwood Festival of Speed this June, but was camouflaged with multi-position F lettering all over the body.
The public will finally be able to see the F-Type in all its glory on 27 September. The car will be launched as a convertible, and will have a choice of three petrol engines, including 340PS and 380PS versions of its 3.0-litre supercharged V6.
A new derivative of its supercharged 5.0-litre V8 will also be available. The F-Type will be a rear-wheel drive with Stop/Start technology and eight-speed transmission.
Adrian Hallmark, Global Brand Director of Jaguar Cars commented: “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.”
The new Jaguar was created in a virtual world environment by the manufacturer’s engineers in a bid to create a car that gives the ultimate sports car driving experience.
Says Ian Hoban, Jaguar’s Vehicle Line Director: “When you are working on a Jaguar sports car the expectations of the world are huge. We’re really pleased how the attributes have translated from the virtual simulation work we’ve done into the physical world.
“Now, we’re refining and adding those last few percentage points – that true element of honing which the Jaguar test team are delivering – which will turn a great sports car into an exceptional one.”
Buyers can get a brand new Jaguar from Perrys Jaguar dealership in Huddersfield.
