Renderings Reveal F-Type Coupe

Leaked

Apparent patent drawings reveal the finished form of the upcoming Jaguar F-Type coupe - and it looks nearly identical to the C-X16 concept. Nearly.

It’s no secret that Jaguar plans on introducing a coupe version of its new F-Type. After all, it previewed the production roadster with a fixed-roof concept called the C-X16. And when it was revealed at the Paris Auto Show last year, it looked pretty close to production-ready. Now a series of patent renderings – more detailed than we’re used to seeing – have leaked out online. The images show a car that’s all but completed impossible to differentiate from the concept, right down to the identical wheels and grille treatment.

Look closely enough, though, and you may notice just a few minor tweaks for production, including a relocated fuel-filler cap, side repeaters integrated into the reshaped mirror housings, and cut-outs for headlamp washers. Other than that, it’s a damn near match to the C-X16. Along with the coupe version, Jaguar is also expected to offer additional engines to accompany the 340- and 380-horsepower supercharged V6 and the 495hp V8. In addition to a prospective 600-horse version, Jaguar is tipped to slot in the 2.0-liter four found in the Land Rover Freelander, only we’d expect some forced induction to help push it beyond its stock 240hp output.
