With just five days to go until the new Jaguar F-TYPE sports cars is given its public debut at the Paris Auto Show on September 27, for those who can’t wait, here is some footage of the Jaguar in high-speed testing.
What we do know is that there will be three models of F-TYPE, powered respectively by 340PS and 380PS versions of Jaguar’s new 3.0-litre V6 supercharged petrol engine and a new derivative of its 5.0-litre V8 supercharged unit.
Mike Cross, Chief Engineer, Vehicle Integrity at Jaguar said: “Fundamentally, a great sports car is one you’ll look forward to driving because it’s fun, and the F-TYPE definitely delivers on that score.
“We’ve worked hard to make sure that responses to steering, throttle and brakes are absolutely immediate, a task made far easier by the rigid aluminium structure at the car’s base. It’s precise and exciting, a car that you’ll want to drive for the sake of driving alone – and it sounds fantastic!”
