F-TYPE COLLECTS BBC TOPGEAR MAGAZINE 'CONVERTIBLE OF THE YEAR' AWARD

2013 honours continue as the Jaguar F-TYPE celebrates the 'Convertible of the Year' accolade from the world's biggest automotive title, BBC TopGear.

Jaguar F-TYPE celebrates a host of prestigious new honours this month, with the most recent 'Convertible of the Year' accolade announced today by the world's biggest automotive title, BBC TopGear.

The F-TYPE has collected awards from all corners of the globe since the launch of the convertible model in the summer, and this latest accolade from BBC TopGear comes just a couple of weeks after the dramatic world debut presentation of the F-TYPE Coupé in Los Angeles.

TopGear magazine editor at large, Jason Barlow, describes the F-TYPE: "On the right road, with the roof down and the blood pumping, driving the V8S is more of an adrenalin rush than an automotive experience. Like bungee jumping over an active volcano."

The stunning F-TYPE has also been named Stuff magazine 'Car of the Year' 2013. The F-TYPE is highly praised by the editorial team at the publication: "F-TYPE has the ability of an all-out supercar, the elegant looks of a classic E-type, yet comfortable enough to take on a coast to coast road trip."

Stuff magazine also shortlisted the McLaren P1, Tesla Model S, Mercedes S-Class, BMW i3 and Renault Zoe for its coveted Car of the Year award.

A panel of experts from FHM, including cars' editor Conor McNicolas and deputy editor Dan Jude, named the F-TYPE 'Drop Top of the Year' 2013 in the magazine's inaugural Car Of The Year awards.

FHM deputy editor Dan Jude said: "FHM is proud to announce the Jaguar F-Type as the Drop Top of the Year 2013. It's a car that we've looked forward to for a very long time, and against all odds it managed to surpass all expectations. A truly magnificent automobile."

At the Recombu Awards 2013 the F-TYPE claimed the 'Best Performance Car' honour, selected as overall winner by a team of ten experienced in-house writers and freelance contributors, after being shortlisted alongside the Porsche 911 Carrera S and Toyota GT86.

Jeremy Hicks, Managing Director, Jaguar Land Rover UK, said: "The new F-TYPE is the ultimate expression of Jaguar sports car DNA. Our talented network of UK dealers and the first customers for F-TYPE have been delighted with their experience with the car.

"The F-TYPE won the World Car of the Year Design category award at its launch. To now receive these awards from major media in our home market is a source of immense pride for everyone at the company."
