New Jaguar F-TYPE at the Lord Mayors Show

The new Jaguar F-TYPE will be driven by Jaguar Academy of Sport Ambassador Jessica Ennis in this year’s Lord Mayor’s Show on November 10th

The new Jaguar F-TYPE will be driven by Jaguar Academy of Sport Ambassador Jessica Ennis in this year’s Lord Mayor’s Show on November 10th; it will debut alongside two famous Jaguar E-Types. Jessica Ennis will be available for pictures and will comment about her role in the Lord Mayor’s Show, her involvement with Jaguar and the all-new F-TYPE.

The new Jaguar F-TYPE is a two seater sports car; it is a front engined, rear wheel drive convertible. The exterior of the F-TYPE features a new interpretation of the bold angular Jaguar grille from which flows the muscular clamshell bonnet with its signature ‘power bulge’. The all important heartline begins its journey in the blade dissecting the shark-like gills on either side of the grille before leading the eye to the top of the front wing, emphasised by the bi-xenon headlamp and integral LED daytime running lights, into the door and towards the rear of the car where it gracefully disappears.

Three variants will be available at launch; the F-TYPE, F-TYPE S and F-TYPE V8 S. Each is distinguished by the power output of its supercharged petrol engine with all engines featuring stop/start technology to maximise efficiency. The all new F-TYPE’s interior features a driver-focused philosophy, with engaging controls encased in dramatic architecture. Unique technical grains tailor the trim materials, further differentiating the dual-cockpit cabin.

Mike Cross, Chief Engineer, Vehicle Integrity, Jaguar said “Fundamentally, a great sports car is one you’ll look forward to driving because it’s fun, and the F-TYPE definitely delivers on that score. We’ve worked hard to make sure that responses to steering, throttle and brakes are absolutely immediate, a task made far easier by the rigid aluminium structure at the car’s base. It’s precise and exciting, a car that you’ll want to drive for the sake of driving alone and it sounds fantastic!” Prices for the new F-TYPE start at £58,500.
