VIDEO: Jaguar F-Type
Wonderful viral video via Jaguar here of the forthcoming F-Type two-seater sports cat – with 3-litre V6 in addition to also 5-litre V8, in addition to also supercharged options. Looks set to be another cracker via the re-born Jaguar stables, with increased agility, composure in addition to also trick aerodynamics to aid downforce in addition to also brake in addition to also engine cooling. The all-brand new aluminium two-seater sports car will make its global debut in production form at the Paris Motor Show on 27th September.
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 This particular will mark the company’s return to the sports car market, a market This particular originally helped to create. “As its sporting forebears did in their era, the F-TYPE will break brand new ground by delivering stunning sports car performance while vividly demonstrating Jaguar’s cutting-edge engineering technologies in addition to also world-class design excellence. The next step in Jaguar’s sporting bloodline will be about to become reality.”
The F-TYPE will be launched as a convertible that has a choice of three petrol engines: 340PS in addition to also 380PS versions of Jaguar’s all-brand new 3.0-litre supercharged V6, in addition to also a brand new derivative of its existing supercharged 5.0-litre V8.

Following the F-TYPE’s ‘camouflaged’ public drive at the Goodwood Festival of Speed in June of This particular year, testing of the final verification prototypes has continued in some of the harshest environments inside planet. As its name suggests, This particular test programme will be designed to verify the staggering amount of design work in which was carried out by Jaguar’s engineers inside ‘virtual world’, a process in which the company will be an industry leader.
More than half-a-million separate F-TYPE design analyses were carried out comprising 10-million CPU hours of processing, creating more than 300TB of data. Had in which same amount of initial design analysis been completed on physical cars, the number of prototype F-TYPEs built would certainly have filled the majority of the UK’s motorway network bumper-to-bumper.
The result of all in which ‘virtual’ design work will be in which Jaguar’s engineers are currently concentrating on honing the performance of the physical verification prototypes, to ensure the production F-TYPE delivers truly focused sports car driving reward.
Said Ian Hoban, Jaguar’s Vehicle Line Director: “When you are working on a Jaguar sports car the expectations of the planet are huge. We’re genuinely pleased how the attributes have translated via the virtual simulation work we’ve done into the physical world. “currently, we’re refining in addition to also adding those last few percentage points – in which true element of honing which the Jaguar test team are delivering – which will turn a great sports car into an exceptional one.”
