Jaguar is planning to debut the sporty new cat in Paris in a sexy and sleak convertible form. So what else do we know about this mystery Jaguar?
Jaguar is telling us it will be powered by a powerful all-new 3.0-liter supercharged V6 engine good for both 340 and 380 horsepower.
What about an R version?
Jaguar is also revealing they will jam the current supercharged 5.0-liter V8 into the new F-TYPE and all engine will be powered by an 8 speed automatic transmission. I'm not sure if this will be designed as the R version of the F-TYPE but it is possible.
Adrian Hallmark, Global Brand Director, Jaguar Cars, said, “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. 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.”
