    Paris 2012: Jaguar F-Type

    Jaguar F-Type Revealed: 2012 Paris Motor Show Preview

    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.

    The front end came out bland. It's a shame going from the gorgeous XJ front end to this. Other than that, not bad, but I expected more.

I've talked to someone about this on another site that confirmed it Navigator isn't even being bench-marked at Cadillac too low for them.

    JLR has only benefitted from the need to not compete with Aston Martin, and they may have one of the most appealing lineups of any of the luxury car makers.
    I want a car so violent that the mere thought of full throttle would cause a heart attack. That actually going wide open throttle in would result in nothing less than instant death!

    I don't know that I would say bland, but the front end vaguely reminds me of the MB SL.

    Looks like the XKR-S from the front which IMHO is not a good thing.

    Agreed. I like the direction their design language is going.

    Beautiful, but isn't this supposed to take on the Boxster and not the 911?

    I think the styling of the front end is a little coarse for a Jaguar, but it's just my opinion.

    I don't mind it. The front, of course, has to allow for the fitment of number plates which limits what you can do.
