Jaguar's new F-Type unveiled

Jaguar has revealed the all-new F-Type at an event in the gardens of the Musée Rodin Museum in Paris and it's a stunner from all angles.

Jaguar says that the two-seater, convertible sports car represents a return to the company‘s heartland, focusing on performance, agility and driver involvement and that it is a continuation of a sporting bloodline stretching back more than 75 years.

Adrian Hallmark, Global Brand Director, Jaguar commented: “Jaguar is a founder member of the sports car segment with a rich sporting bloodline stretching over 75 years, and in the F-Type we‘ve reignited that flame. The F-Type isn‘t designed to be like anyone else‘s sports car. It‘s a Jaguar sports car – ultra-precise, powerful, sensual and, most of all, it feels alive.”

With an aluminium chassis and suspension components, much of the engineering emphasis has been placed firmly in the handling department. However the brand new 3.0-litre V6, developed from Jaguar’s 5.0-litre V8 (available in a choice 340PS or 380PS outputs) will assure rapid performance.

Jaguar is claiming a 0-60mph time of 4.8 seconds (0-100km/h in 4.9 seconds) and a top speed of 171mph.

The F-TYPE will be available OTR for £58,500, the F-TYPE S for £67,500 and the F-TYPE V8 S for £79,950
