Jaguar has confirmed that its production ready F-Type two-seater sports convertible will make its debut at the Paris Motor Show on September 27.
The new rear-wheel drive model will be launched as a convertible with a choice of three petrol engines: 338bhp and 378bhp versions of Jaguar’s new 3.0-litre supercharged V6, and a new derivative of its existing supercharged 5.0-litre V8.
All will drive the rear wheels through an eight-speed transmission and will be equipped with stop/start technology.
“The unveiling of the F-Type in Paris will be a truly significant day in Jaguar’s history as it will mark the company’s return to the sports car market, a market it originally helped to create,” Adrian Hallmark, global brand director, Jaguar Cars, said.
“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.”
