We have new video of the Jaguar F-Type ahead of its reveal in a week’s time at the 2012 Paris Motor Show.
Yesterday was a bit of a blip on Jaguar’s plans for a controlled reveal of their new sports car, with the undisguised Jaguar F-Type photo breaking loose and on to the interwebs.
Jaguar then did pragmatic thing and released that rogue image of three F-Types officially (rather than twisting arms to take it down as sister company Land Rover did with the first photo of the 2013 Range Rover) so we could see the F-Type in decent detail. But just the one photo.
Now we get what will probably be the last teaser video of the F-Type with a new VT of camouflaged F-Types strutting their stuff on track and feedback from Jaguar’s test drivers and Jaguar’s Chief Engineer – Mike Cross – who said:
Fundamentally, a great sports car is one you’ll look forward to driving because it’s fun, and the F-TYPE definitely delivers on that score. We’ve worked hard to make sure that responses to steering, throttle and brakes are absolutely immediate, a task made far easier by the rigid aluminium structure at the car’s base. It’s precise and exciting, a car that you’ll want to drive for the sake of driving alone – and it sounds fantastic!”
Which all sounds hugely promising. Jaguar are also promising that the V8 Supercharged engine will be a ‘New derivative’ of the powerful supercharged lump that already nestles beneath the bonnet of Jaguar’s (and Land Rover’s) most powerful cars.
The new Jaguar F-Type Roadster will be officially revealed at Jaguar’s press conference at the Paris Motor Show on 27th September at 7.00am, although we’ll have all the details – and photos – the night before.
