NEW YORK, N.Y., (April 4, 2012) – It was an evening dedicated to the future and heritage of great sports cars in New York City Wednesday night at Jaguar’s exclusive reception to celebrate the exciting announcement of a new Jaguar sport car to be added to its current product line-up, the F-TYPE. Grammy-winning musician and producer Wyclef Jean, comedian and actor Tracy Morgan and actor Michael Williams, were on hand and shared their personal Jaguar stories and memories.
Guests attending the event, held at STK in New York’s Meatpacking District, were treated to the unveiling of a Jaguar XKR redesigned by renowned graffiti artist Kaves. Other exceptional Jaguar vehicles were on display, including silver C-Type and D-Type Jaguars, representing the classic British brand’s long-time commitment to creating some of the best automobiles in both luxury and performance capabilities.
"In a world of mass market luxury, Jaguar cars stand out for the seductive effect of their design, their rich luxury interiors and their arresting performance," said David Pryor, Brand Vice President, Jaguar North America. "We're very excited to soon be adding the F-TYPE to our incredible product line-up.”
Earlier in the day at the New York International Auto Show, Jaguar formally announced that an all-new sports car will enter production; the Jaguar F-TYPE. A true two-seat sports car, the Jaguar F-TYPE will launch as a convertible becoming the fourth model in the current line of innovative and seductive cars, along with the XF sports sedan, the XJ luxury sedan and the XK coupe/convertible.
Jaguar also debuted its 2013 Jaguar XK and the 2013 Jaguar XK Portfolio Pack at the New York International Auto Show to consumers and media.
