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.
Adrian Hallmark, Global Brand Director of Jaguar, will be performing his own ode to the new F-TYPE at a press conference tomorrow morning – from 07:00-07:15 BST (08:00-08:15 CEST/ local time), however his rendition will be in the form of a slide-show rather than the musical performance provided by Miss Del Rey.
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.

F-Type was the name used for the critically acclaimed compact 2-seat concept shown by Jaguar in 2000. It was Jaguar’s answer to the Porsche Boxster and seemed the ideal route for the Coventry brand. But much to everyone’s disappointment, the concept was shelved.
Jaguar’s C-X16 production concept will make its global debut at the Frankfurt Motor Show on September 13, reigniting the hopes and desires of fans who have been patiently waiting for an F-Type.
