Gaydon engineers are particularly proud of what they have so-far achieved with the F-Type, and a little snippet of what this car is going to achieve on the road has been revealed in Jaguar’s latest video. Former F1 driver and Sky pundit Martin Brundle reveals a little of the new car at the company’s test track, alongside celebrated chassis engineer, Mike Cross.
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.’
