Last week American singer songwriter Lana Del Rey performed her new track, ‘Burning Desire’, to an audience of VIP’s in the gardens of the 18th century Musée Rodin in Paris. It marked the beginning of a global programme to promote Jaguar’s new F-TYPE, the company’s first two-seater sports car since the iconic E-type was launched more than 50 years ago.
Without further ado, let’s get stuck in to the detail of the all-new F-TYPE. There will be three variants available at launch – F-TYPE, F-TYPE S and F-TYPE V8 S. Each is distinguished by the power output of its supercharged petrol engine with all engines featuring stop/start technology to maximise efficiency.
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.
You’ve got to hand it to Jaguar, despite last week’s leaked photo of the new F-TYPE, they’ve stuck resolutely to their launch schedule, releasing teaser videos (above) and reminding us that all will be revealed in Paris on Wednesday (26th).
It’s set to be one of the hottest cars of 2013, providing a direct challenge to Porsche’s 911 and Boxster. Now, after an image was leaked online, Jaguar has chosen to release the first official picture of the F-TYPE, showing three different specifications of its new compact roadster.
Jaguar’s newest model line, due to challenge Porsche’s 911 and Boxster, will be unveiled at next month’s Paris Motor Show on 27th September.
It’s motor show time, so Lotus have given us another riddle to solve – 3 new cars, 2 new options AND 1 special limited edition. Thankfully they’ve given us part of the answer, but they’re keeping 2 of the new models a secret until they’re revealed on 13 September in Frankfurt.
