Jaguar F-Type Announced

Jaguar has officially confirmed the expansion of their model lineup with an all new sports car called the F-Type.

The announcement was made by Adrian Hallmark, Global Brand Director, Jaguar Cars at the 2012 New York Auto Show, who said "We showed the C-X16 concept in September 2011, and the reaction to it has been so positive that we've accelerated our development of an all-new Jaguar sports car"  

"That car will be called the F-TYPE, and it will be unveiled in production form later this year. The core appeal of Jaguar's cars is their sporting heart, and that heart will beat stronger than ever beforein the F-TYPE. Its development is a vivid representation of the confidence and ambition of the Jaguar brand, and the desire amongst our engineers and design team to produce a world-leader in a market segment that we have been absent from for too long. But no longer – the F-TYPE is coming."

The F-Type is a two-seater convertible using an all-aluminium construction, which will extract power from a range of petrol engines that will include a new powerplant family.

The company promises that the F-Type will deliver stunning sports car performance, with Ian Hoban, Jaguar's Vehicle Line Director stating that "The engineering development of the F-TYPE has focused on delivering a heightened level of dynamic driving reward. We are excited about our progress to date and are looking forward to soon being able to demonstrate what we have achieved."

Ian Callum, Director of Design, said: "A true sports car needs to be pure in both its purpose and its form; to have the opportunity to produce such a car for Jaguar has been a privilege both for myself and for my team. The C-type, D-type and E-type Jaguars were all sports cars that held true to this principle in their era, and the F-TYPE will hold true to that same principle in its time, a time that is soon to arrive."

Technical and range details referring to the new F-Type will be announced later in 2012, while the car is expected to go on sale in mid 2013.
