F-Type Jaguar prototype makes public debut at Goodwood
A development prototype example of Jaguar’s new sports car, the F-TYPE, is set to make its public debut at the Goodwood Festival of Speed.
Utilising Jaguar's industry-leading knowledge of all-aluminium construction, the F-TYPE will launch as a two-seater convertible with the focus uncompromisingly on delivering driver reward.
The F-TYPE will be driven up the famous Goodwood Hill by Jaguar’s Head of Vehicle Integrity, Mike Cross.
Powered by a supercharged V6 or V8 engine, the F-TYPE is currently undergoing development prior to going on sale mid-2013. Taking on the most challenging roads, extremes of temperature and the harshest environments, the F-TYPE is being thoroughly tested ahead of its launch.
Adrian Hallmark, Global Brand Director, Jaguar Cars commented; ‘Goodwood Festival of Speed is focused around the dynamic hill runs where the public can see, hear and smell the cars – this is why we have chosen it as the place to showcase an F-TYPE prototype. The development programme is progressing with vigour and we look forward to showing the world the F-TYPE in production form later this year.’
The Goodwood Festival of Speed is this year themed around ‘Young Guns – Born to Win’, celebrating drivers, riders, designers and engineers.
