Jaguar Confirms F-Type Paris Debut

Video / Comments

The all-new aluminum two-seater sports car will debut in production form at the Paris Motor Show in September.

Jaguar has put us through the ringer with the new F-Type, revealing it first as the C-X16 concept at 2011's Frankfurt Auto Show, later announcing the roadster's official name before releasing a barrage of teaser shots and videos of the car in camouflage form. It even made a flesh-and-bones appearance at the Goodwood Festival of Speed last month. The wait, however, is almost over, as Jaguar today announced that the new F-Type will officially debut in production form at the Paris Motor Show next month.

"The unveiling of the F-Type in Paris will be a truly significant day in Jaguar's history," said Jaguar exec Adrian Hallmark, "as it will mark the company's return to the sports car market, a market it originally helped to create."

"As its sporting forebears did in their era, the F-Type will break new ground by delivering stunning sports car performance while vividly demonstrating Jaguar's cutting-edge engineering technologies and world-class design excellence. The next step in Jaguar's sporting bloodline is about to become reality." Initially to be launched as a convertible, the F-Type will come with three gasoline engines: 340- and 380-horsepower variants of the all-new 3.0-liter supercharged V6, and a new derivative of the supercharged 5.0-liter V8, the output of which is being kept under wraps until Paris.
