JAGUAR: All systems go for F-Type
JAGUAR has confirmed that it will bring an all-new sports car to production called the F-TYPE.
Utilising all-aluminium construction, the F-TYPE will launch as a convertible, and a strict two-seater with the focus uncompromisingly on delivering driver reward.
A range of petrol engines will be available - including a new powerplant family - and all will deliver sports car performance.
F-TYPE’s rigorous development schedule has already moved to final on-road testing, with engineering prototypes now leaving Jaguar’s Castle Bromwich plant - the exact same plant at which the production cars will be built.
Jag’s design director Ian Callum said a true sports car needs to be pure in both its purpose and its form.
“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.”
