This makes a very logical progression with post-war Jaguar sports cars beginning with the C-Type, then the D-Type followed by the wildly popular E-Type. This new car, which is to be released in 2013, also has styling similarities which makes it a worthy successor to the E.
Adrian Hallmark, Global Brand Director of Jaguar confirmed at the New York Auto Show that the F-Type will be in production, and yes, based on the stunning C-X16.
The F-Type will join Jaguar’s existing range - the XF sedan and Sportbrake, XJ sedan and XK coupe/convertible.
Full specifications are not confirmed, but it is claimed that the new car will have a top speed approaching 300 km/h and have a zero to 100 km/h under five seconds, making it a definite supercar.
Jaguar released their own camouflaged spy photos with the “F” design, though it does look rather like the Fendi handbag livery!
