Thursday September 27 will see the grand unveiling of the exciting new Jaguar F-Type at the Paris Auto Show.
The rear-wheel drive Convertible will be available as three models, including two versions with 340 and 380hp versions of the new 3.0L V6 supercharged engine, as well as another with the 5.0L V8 supercharged unit.
A sports car must reflect its intentions in every aspect. So while it looks fast, the Chief Engineer for Vehicle Integrity at Jaguar, Mike Cross made sure it was equally as dynamic to drive.
“Fundamentally, a great sports car is one you’ll look forward to driving because it’s fun, and the F-Type definitely delivers on that score. We’ve worked hard to make sure that responses to steering, throttle and brakes are absolutely immediate, a task made far easier by the rigid aluminum structure at the car’s base. It’s precise and exciting, a car that you’ll want to drive for the sake of driving alone – and it sounds fantastic!”
