While we await tomorrow’s Livestream broadcast from the Paris Motor Show – at 7:00am British Summer Time (8:00 CET) if you’re interested, we thought you’d like to see a full hi-res gallery of Jaguar’s new F-TYPE in all its splendour.
The F-Type will be launched as a strict two-seater – initially in convertible form, with a choice of three petrol engines – 335bhp and 375bhp versions of Jaguar’s all-new 3.0-litre supercharged V6, and a new derivative of its existing supercharged 5.0-litre V8 with more than 400bhp.
Pricing is believed to start from £55,000 with deliveries due to begin from mid 2013.
A man who knows better than most about the driving experience delivered by the F-TYPE is Mike Cross, Chief Engineer, Vehicle Integrity, Jaguar: “Fundamentally, a great sports car is one you’ll look forward to driving because it’s fun, and the F-TYPE definitely delivers on that score.
“We’ve worked hard to make sure that responses to steering, throttle and brakes are absolutely immediate, a task made far easier by the rigid aluminium structure at the car’s base. It’s precise and exciting, a car that you’ll want to drive for the sake of driving alone – and it sounds fantastic!”
We’ll have more details soon, and if you’re an early riser, check back at 7:00am tomorrow morning when we’ll be carrying the live broadcast direct from Jaguar Land Rover’s stand.
