Living up to the proud heritage
Jaguar Cars, Inc., the exclusive distributor of the Jaguar automobile brand in the Philippines, today launched the all new F-Type roadster at the Jaguar Lifestyle Centre at Bonifacio Global City, Taguig.
The new Jaguar F-Type represents a return to the company’s heart: a two-seat, convertible sports car focused on performance, agility and driver involvement.
“The ownership of a Jaguar has never been a stronger statement globally. Its performance is all about the aspects of engineering and technological excellence,” said Mr. Wellington Soong, Chair and President of Jaguar Cars, Inc. “This is also a tribute to Sir William Lyon’s ‘Poetry in Motion’.”
Jaguar Philippines is bringing in the F-Type S with the supercharged V8 engined that develops 495 PS. A true two-seat sports car, the all-new Jaguar F-TYPE is equipped with a modern, lightweight soft top that, when lowered, serves as its own tonneau cover. The top can be fully raised or lowered in just 12 seconds at a speed of up to 30 mph. Its multi-layer construction includes a Thinsulate lining for optimal thermal and sound-insulating properties.
At the launch, the Jaguar F-Type was joined by its iconic predecessor, the Jaguar E-Type from the 1960s.
Interested clients can view the F-Type at the Jaguar Lifestyle Center in BGC.
