TopGear.com.ph Philippine Car News - Jaguar to produce all-new sports car in F-Type

Jaguar has confirmed that it is currently developing an all-new sports car, thanks to the public's reaction to the C-X16 concept that was displayed at the Frankfurt Motor Show in September 2011.

"The reaction to it (C-X16 concept) has been so positive that we've accelerated our development of an all-new Jaguar sports car," said Jaguar Cars global brand director Adrian Hallmark. "That car will be called the F-Type, and it will be unveiled in production form later this year."

The F-Type will be made entirely out of aluminum and be strictly offered as a two-seater convertible "with the focus uncompromisingly on delivering driver reward." Other than that, the only information Jaguar would reveal of the F-Type is that it will be offered with a range of gasoline-powered engines and that the engineering prototypes are now undergoing final on-road tests.

"The engineering development of the F-Type has focused on delivering a heightened level of dynamic driving reward. We are excited about our progress to date and are looking forward to soon being able to demonstrate what we have achieved," said Ian Hoban, Jaguar vehicle-line director. 

Complete technical and range details of the Jaguar F-Type will be revealed later this year before it goes on sale in the middle of 2013.
