Jaguar F-Type announced

Jaguar has confirmed that its latest two-seater sports car will be called F-Type - previously known as C-X16. The F-Type is going into production, and will be available from the mid-2013.

During the press conference at the New York motor show, Adrian Hallmark - Jaguar Cars Global Brand Director - commented that development work on the new car has been accelerated due to the huge amount of positive feedback recieved after the C-X16 concept was shown.

Images of a heavily-disguised roadster have been released - as well as a video - and the company has confirmed that the F-Type will initially be launched as a roadster, with the coupe coming later. Although no specific details have yet emerged about the engine or possible hybrid drivetrain, Jaguar has confirmed that a 'range of petrol engines' will be available.

Ian Callum, Director of Design, said: 'A true sports car needs to be pure in both its purpose and its form; to have the opportunity to produce such a car for Jaguar has been a privilege both for myself and for my team. The C-type, D-type and E-type Jaguars were all sports cars that held true to this principle in their era, and the F-TYPE will hold true to that same principle in its time, a time that is soon to arrive.'
