Some month’s ago we gave you the very first photos of the new Jaguar F-Type Coupe, and today we can show you the clearest batch of photos taken at the Nürburgring where the F-Type Coupe took some quick laps before it disappeared again.
Just like the F-Type Roadster we expect the Coupe to be available in two V6 versions and one V8 for a start. But as we hear through the grapevine there might be some R and R-S versions of the F-Type in the pipeline in the future.
We expect the Power to be delivered from the current three engines – A 3.0 V6 340PS, 3.0 V6 380PS and 5.0 V8 495PS. Each features a Roots-type twin vortex supercharger mounted on the ‘V’ of the engine to maintain its compact dimensions.
Jaguar is a leader in Supercharged induction technology – it provides a linear delivery of performance and high levels of torque at all engine speeds, minimizing the gap between the driver’s demand for power and the engine’s response.
We expect improvements with the F-TYPE’s lightweight aluminum body structure with additional torsional rigidity from the coupe configuration, which should reduce the weight substantially which will reduce the 0-62mph times across the range.
All at the time the rumor mill is hinting at a more extreme version of the current F-Type dubbed the F-Type R-S.
We expect the Jaguar F-Type Coupe to hit the market in 2014 with an entry level model expected to be around 55,000 Sterling.
