Jaguar F-Type marks the company's return to the sports car market

After its short appearance on Goodwood's Festival of Speed last June, the Jaguar F-Type is set to make its global debut in production form at the Paris Motor Show on September 27th.

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 it will mark the company’s return to the sports car market, a market it originally helped to create.”


The F-Type, Jaguar’s all-new aluminium two-seater convertible sports car, will come with three engine variants, each mated to an 8-speed transmission which drives power to the rear wheels. The F-Type comes in 340hp and 380hp versions that is produced by a supercharged 3.0-liter V6 engine, and the top of the line supercharged 5.0-liter V8 engine.

“As its sporting forebears did in their era, the F-TYPE will break new ground by delivering stunning sports car performance while vividly demonstrating Jaguar’s cutting-edge engineering technologies and world-class design excellence. The next step in Jaguar’s sporting bloodline is about to become reality.”
