Jaguar has extended its support as an Innovation Partner to Team Sky by designing, engineering and building a bespoke F-Type R Coupe high performance support vehicle for the team to use during Stage 20 of the race. 

This one-off vehicle was designed by Special Vehicle Operations division and features a bespoke racking solution carrying two of the Team Sky's Pinarello Bolide TT bikes. In addition, we see the ProCycling team livery while other graphic design features specific to Team Sky have been implemented throughout the cabin.

"Jaguar has supplied high performance support vehicles to Team Sky since its first season in 2010. The development of this F-Type Coupe is the latest example of our shared belief to push the boundaries and provide technologically innovative solutions, both on and off the bike.  The visual impact of the F-Type Coupe during Stage 20 will also of course bring added attention to Team Sky and our unique partnership", said Mark Cameron, JLR Global Brand Experience Director.

In addition, Jaguar offers a separate electric supply in the trunk offering power to the amplifiers, radios, microphones as well as horns and televisions supporting communications between the team’s sports director and the rider.

Under the hood, the one-off Jaguar F-Type R Coupe features the same supercharged V8 5.0 liter unit rated at 550 horsepower and 680 Nm peak of torque.
