The spiritual successor to the Jaguar E-Type will make its public debut at the Los Angeles Auto Show on November 20.T
The brand new all-aluminium Jaguar F-TYPE Coupé follows on from the acclaimed C-X16 concept, and Ian Callum, Jaguar’s Scottish Director of Design, is pretty excited that the final road car version has managed to stay pretty true to the original concept design. The new car will therefore complement the existing 2013 ‘World Car Design of the Year’ award-winning F-TYPE Convertible range.
Ian said: “The excitement generated when we revealed the C-X16 concept was terrific; so to now be on the cusp of what I can assure you will be a drama-filled reveal event in Los Angeles for F-TYPE Coupé is a very significant moment.”
“We’ve been overwhelmed by the positive reaction to F-TYPE Convertible, but for me the purity of creating a sports Coupé is a uniquely satisfying process – and I know that both visually and dynamically, F-TYPE Coupé raises the bar yet again.”
But can it possibly match the sheer elegance and poise of the original E-Type? We’ll find out in 2 weeks time.
