Jaguar is set to show to the world its illustrious past and exciting future through the debut of its F-Type Design Study at the Goodwood Festival of Speed happening on July 11-14, 2013. The F-Type design study is based on the F-Type convertible and will be unleashed on the Goodwood Hill with Mike Cross, Chief Engineer, Vehicle Integrity behind the wheel.
Together with the F-Type design study, Jaguar will also unveil three new ‘R’ vehicles which can be viewed up close by the visitors of the Festival of Speed Supercar Paddock. First of the three ‘R’ vehicles is the new Jaguar XJR that has a 550 PS supercharged 5.0-liter V8 engine. Meanwhile, the Jaguar XKR-S GT will be driven by Sir Chris Hoy and Gran Turismo producer Kazunori Yamauchi in the supercar run. Lastly, the Jaguar XFR-S high performance saloon will also make its first public appearance during the festival.
In addition to the hill climb activities, visitors to the Goodwood Festival of Speed will be able to view a range of new Jaguar vehicles in the brand's eye-catching, two-storey pavillion, including the XFR-S performance saloon; the new XJR flagship and the recently-launched XF Sportbrake. The new F-TYPE sports car will also be on show, as will an example of an F-TYPE chassis which allows visitors to examine the all-aluminium structure in its high-tech, lightweight glory.
A stunning new art installation, inspired by Jaguar design, created by Royal College of Art students and unveiled during the recent Clerkenwell Design Week in London, will also be on display for the duration of the Goodwood Festival of Speed.
