Jaguar confirmed today that the first prototype example of the company’s new F-TYPE sports car is scheduled to make a public debut at the Goodwood Festival of Speed. The car, which will launch as a two-seater convertible, will show-off Jaguar’s know-how of an all-aluminum construction.
Power for the Jaguar F-TYPE sport scars will come from a supercharged V6 or V8 engine that is currently in development. The model will go on sale in mid-2013.
“Goodwood Festival of Speed is focused around the dynamic hill runs where the public can see, hear and smell the cars – this is why we have chosen it as the place to showcase an F-TYPE prototype,” said Adrian Hallmark, Global Brand Director, Jaguar Cars. “The development programme is progressing with vigour and we look forward to showing the world the F-TYPE in production form later this year.”
The Jaguar F-TYPE will be driven at Goodwood Hill by the brand’s head of vehicle integrity, Mike Cross.
