The New 2013 Jaguar F-Type is Almost Here

The new 2013 Jaguar F-Type is a new convertible sports car, exclusively available as a convertible with a hard-top coupe model set to arrive in the near future this is the most exciting Jaguar since the E-Type. And it’s hard not to draw comparisons with the iconic E-Type Jaguar, the looks are reminiscent of the legendary sports car but will the performance match up as well.

The Jaguar F-Type has the looks to rival most convertible sports cars and will definitely turn heads. Enthusiasts may be disappointed a hard-top coupe version won’t be available until possibly another year. The modern body and eagle eyed head lights give the Jaguar a distinctive look but comparisons will always be drawn to the ever popular E-Type.

The performance is meant to rival the Porsche Boxster with two engines available a 3.0-litre V6 supercharged petrol unit and a 5.0-litre V8 both stating 0-60mph in less than 5 seconds. Acceleration and weight distribution have been focused on which allows for better performance and also better fuel economy with the V6 model giving a return of 30mpg. However this is driving economically though and with a V6 or V8 under the bonnet it would be hard to keep disciplined.

Extras can be added to the convertible with the possibility of the price soaring to £92,000. When launched both standard and ‘S’ specification will be available. Jaguar’s standard multimedia system will be available with leather sports seats and a luxury interior that is the very least expected with a Jaguar model.

A quote from Jaguars Vehicle Line Director, Ian Hoban stated: “The engineering development of the F-TYPE has focused on delivering a heightened level of dynamic driving reward. We are excited about our progress to date and are looking forward to soon being able to demonstrate what we have achieved.” Hopefully the car lives up to his word when the Jaguar F-Type becomes available in spring 2013 at selected car dealerships.
