Jaguar announces allnew UKbuilt sports car

Today, Jaguar announced that it will build an all-new sports car at its Castle Bromwich facility in the West Midlands. Based on the C-X16 concept shown in September 2011, the new car will be called the F-TYPE, and will be unveiled in production form later this year, before going on sale in 2013.Utilising Jaguar’s detailed knowledge of all-aluminium construction, the F-TYPE will launch as a convertible, and a strict two-seater with the focus on delivering driver reward. A range of petrol engines will be available – including a new powerplant family.Ian Hoban, Jaguar’s Vehicle Line Director said, “The engineering development of the F-TYPE has focused on delivering a heightened level of dynamic driving reward. We are excited about our progress to date and are looking forward to soon being able to demonstrate what we have achieved”.Ian Callum, Director of Design, said, “A true sports car needs to be pure in both its purpose and its form; to have the opportunity to produce such a car for Jaguar has been a privilege both for myself and for my team. 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 in its time, a time that is soon to arrive”.The F-TYPE will join Jaguar’s existing range of cars – the XF saloon and Sportbrake, XJ saloon and XK coupe/convertible. Full F-TYPE technical and range details will be announced later in 2012. It will go on sale in mid-2013.Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window) read more
