Jaguar Unveils F-Type
Jaguar really isn’t messing about with their new range of cars. If you thought that Porsche had the sports car market to itself with the Boxster, think again; because Jaguar is here and they’re coming with the F-Type.
Jaguar really isn’t messing about with their new range of cars. If you thought that Porsche had the sports car market to itself with the Boxster, think again; because Jaguar is here and they’re coming with the F-Type. Unveiled with a camologage paintjob, the new F-Type will take on the aforementioned car finance Boxster for the sports car throne, but with such an evokotive name as the F-Type behind it, will Jaguar be able to pull it off?
Jag's brand director Adrian Hallmark said: "We showed the C-X16 concept in September 2011, and the reaction to it has been so positive that we've accelerated our development of an all-new Jaguar sports car.
"Its development is a vivid representation of the confidence and ambition of the Jaguar brand, and the desire amongst our engineers and design team to produce a world leader in a market segment that we have been absent from for too long. But no longer...the F-Type is coming."
Jaguar's design boss Ian Callum added his two cents: "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."
Exciting times, indeed.
