Jaguar F-Type Revealed: 2012 Paris Motor Show Preview
Sep 19, 12:50 PM
After much anticipation and official spy photos, a picture of what is apparently the new Jaguar F-Type fully uncovered has finally hit the web, showing Jag’s return to two-seat sports cars in the flesh.
At its base, the car comes with a 380-hp 3.0-liter supercharged V6, but the F-Type R will offer a monstrous 5.0-litre V8 with 550 hp and 500 lb-ft of torque. Looking primarily to take on the Porsche 911, the F-Type uses a lightweight aluminum chassis and an eight-speed transmission to off the sportiest experience possible.
The car will originally be offered as only a two-seater convertible, although a coupe variant will likely be available some time after the cars mid-2013 on sale date. Although the F-Type had a public debut at the Goodwood Festival of Speed, next week’s 2012 Paris Motor Show is the first official showing of the car without camo.
