British maker Jaguar has officially announced the production of its new F-Type, based on the C-X16 concept coupe shown at last year’s Frankfurt motor show.
“We showed the C-X16 concept in September 2011, and the reaction to it has been so positive that we’ve accelerated our development of an all-new Jaguar sports car. That car will be called the Jaguar F-TYPE, and it will be unveiled in production form later this year. The core appeal of Jaguar’s cars is their sporting heart, and that heart will beat stronger than ever before in the F-TYPE. Its development is a vivid representation of the confidence and ambition of the Jaguar brand, and the desire amongst our engineers and design team to produce a world-leader in a market segment that we have been absent from for too long. But no longer, the F-TYPE is coming.” Adrian Hallmark, Global Brand Director, Jaguar Cars, confirmed.
The new Jaguar F-type two-seater convertible will be built in Birmingham. Pricing and complete specifications will be revealed later this year, and will go on sale in mid-2013.
