JAGUAR F-TYPE COUPE: DYNAMICALLY CORRECT!

Stunning all-aluminum sports coupe raises the bar and challenges the status quo.
“Creating a sports coupe is the purest of design tasks and also the most challenging; get it right and aesthetically the result will be as dynamic as the car should be rewarding to drive. In the F-TYPE Coupe, I believe we’ve got it right,” said Ian Callum, Director of Design, Jaguar.

“The dramatic debut of the 550 horsepower F-TYPE R Coupe in Los Angeles today – possibly the most dynamic reveal of a car ever – underlines its performance credentials.” Jaguar’s Design Director is also a serious car guy, owning both sports cars and a Ford hot rod.

The all-aluminum production F-TYPE Coupe delivers an uncompromised design vision of the Jaguar C-X16 Concept and complements the current F-TYPE Convertible, winner of the 2013 ‘World Car Design of the Year’ award. The F-TYPE Coupe range adds to the existing three-car F-TYPE Convertible model lineup: the V6-engined F-TYPE (340hp) and F-TYPE S (380hp), and the F-TYPE V8 S (495hp), which launched last year.

Jaguar’s all-new F-TYPE Coupe also features ample trunk space, easily accommodating two sets of golf clubs, and is available with a power-assisted tailgate. The F-TYPE R Coupe, headlines the new F-TYPE Coupe lineup with a 550 horsepower 5-liter supercharged V8 engine, enabling acceleration from 0-60 mph in 4.0 seconds, and a computer-limited top speed of 186 mph.
The F-TYPE Coupe will go on sale in spring of 2014.
