F-TYPE JAGUAR PROTOYPE MAKES PUBLIC DEBUT AT GOODWOOD
Whitley, UK. (June 21, 2012) - A development prototype example of Jaguar’s new sports car, the F-TYPE, is set to make its public debut at the Goodwood Festival of Speed.
Utilizing Jaguar's industry-leading knowledge of all-aluminum construction, the F-TYPE will launch as a convertible, and a strict two-seater with the focus uncompromisingly on delivering driver reward.
The F-TYPE will be driven up the famous Goodwood Hill by Jaguar’s Head of Vehicle Integrity, Mike Cross.
Powered by a mix of supercharged V6 and V8 engines, the F-TYPE is currently undergoing development. Taking on the most challenging roads, extremes of temperature and the harshest environments on the planet, the F-TYPE is being thoroughly tested ahead of its launch. The production car will be shown later in the year and will go on sale mid-2013.
Adrian Hallmark, Global Brand Director, Jaguar Cars commented; ‘Goodwood Festival of Speed is focused around the dynamic hill runs where the public can see, hear and smell the cars – this is why we have chosen it as the place to showcase an F-TYPE prototype. The development programme is progressing with vigor and we look forward to showing the world the F-TYPE in production form later this year.’
The Goodwood Festival of Speed is this year themed around ‘Young Guns – Born to Win’, celebrating drivers, riders, designers and engineers.
