Jaguar F-Type Paris Motor Show

As we edge closer to the Paris Motor Show, more information seems to be seeping out of the web. The newest addition to the Jaguar family, the F-Type has been revealed in all its glory on a spy photographer’s page on Facebook. The F-Type draws inspiration heavily from the C-X16 concept. The F-Type will be powered by Jaguar’s latest 3.0-litre V6 S/C engine, in its 380PS form.The F-TYPE will join Jaguar’s existing range of cars – the XF saloon and Sportbrake, XJ saloon and XK coupe/convertible.

The 3.0 V6 S/C produces almost 127PS per litre – the highest specific output of any Jaguar engine. The 3.0 V6 also makes 460Nm of maximum torque.The 3.0 V6 S/C will be available with Jaguar’s Intelligent Stop-Start system.

It is worth a mention that the same 3.0 litre supercharged V6 is also available in the 340PS/450Nm guise in the XF and the XJ.

The F-Type is expected to go on sale in mid 2013.
