2013 Jaguar F-type Roadster – Spyshots

These are the latest and first unofficial spy shots of the Jaguar F Type V6 prowling around the B-Roads in the Midlands UK.

Jaguar plans to launch the roadster in early 2013, priced around the £45,000, followed by an F-type coupe about a year later.

The F-type will be the first model to use the all new 3.0-litre V6 Supercharged petrol engine.

The new quad cam 3.0 litre V6 petrol engine is derived from Jaguar’s existing 5.0-litre V8 taking away 2 combustion chambers, variable valve timing and aluminium construction of the eight. It also includes stop-start and drives through an eight-speed ZF automatic.

The exact capacity of the F-type’s new V6 is 2.9l which will be force fed by the the Roots-type twin-vortex supercharger, giving it an impressive 375bhp and 339lb ft lb of torque.

This will propel the car 0-60 in under 4.5 seconds and propel itself to around 180mph.
