The Jaguar F-Type, which had been in development since – at least – 2006 under the codename X152, is a car that Jaguar engineers and marketeers would like to have launched years ago. Arguably, customers have been clamouring for it since the death of the E-type back in 1975, and it’s one of the first new projects that Ratan Tata signed-off when he took over Jaguar Land Rover in 2008.

Keith Adams Until last week, I was rather like the film buff who’d never seen Star Wars. My main claim to fame is that, as a British car journalist with a special interest in our own car industry, I’d never driven a Jaguar F-Type. Was I the only one? I think so. Oh, don’t get me […]
Mike Humble A wannabe E-type or a modern day XJ-S were just some of the comments that were banded around in my earshot when sampling the top of the range Jaguar F-Type Coupe. As you may remember, we experienced the 3.0 supercharged “S” back in the summer and came away feeling impressed and proud to […]
Mike Humble Oh, to be in the English Countryside in Summertime… the clack of leather meeting willow on the village green, birds singing and the distant cries of Plain Bob from the Parish Church. Of all my favourite spots in blighty, of which there are plenty, East Anglia has to be my spiritual home. This […]

It’s probably the most anticipated sports car launch of 2013 and easily one of the most scooped – but, despite this, Jaguar has still managed to pull of a couple of surprises. The addition of the F-Type R Coupe, as well as […]
Keith Adams The long-awaited and far from unexpected Jaguar F-Type Coupe will make its global debut on at a Los Angeles VIP customer and media event on 19 November.
