Spy Shots: Jaguar F-Type Coupe



Gallery:
http://www.autoblog.com/photos/jagua...photo-5870820/

The automotive world has been hot on fire with the Jaguar F-Type of late. We're still recovering from the excitement of driving Jaguar's new sports car for the first time, and recently we had a predictive look at a coupe version. As it turns out, those 'patent sketches' were just a warm up for the real deal F-Type Coupe, as this brand new set of spy images proves out.

Word from our shooter is that security around the F coupe was and is really tight. The photographer had to hide in the cargo area of his clandestine SUV, just to catch these few, not-perfectly-clear images (that odd color your see is window tint). Still, the photos are good enough to see that the rakish silhouette of the hardtop is going to do justice to the convertible. In fact, the new top seems to flow quite perfectly into the car's rear haunches.

Expect that the F-Type Coupe will share an engine lineup with the roadster, meaning both a naturally aspirated and a supercharged V6, as well as a V8 option. Hot R and R-S versions of the Jaguar coupe are a virtual lock, too, though how far down the product pipeline they are is unclear.

holy hell yes!! As if the Supercharged V6 and V8 weren't enough, a R and R-S and R-S GT would be insane. This Vert and now Coupe really puts the XK in a pickle, but hey it'll go upstream with more luxury and more power. Finding it's company alongside the Granturismo and DB9

If the writer of that Autoblog article got a bloody clue, they'd realize that I already pointed out to them that those were the images from patents filed for the IAA 2011 C-X16 Concept on August 17, 2011. The patents for the 2014 F-Type roadster were barely filed on June 14, 2012, so PRODUCTION coupe's patent images have not been released as its design patent hasn't been filed yet by JLR. Journalists could do better in not misleading the public. Anyway, it's rather surprising to see them already running. I almost didn't have faith in Jaguar to follow through.

I fell in love when I saw the commercials on TV for the F type. Couldn't believe it was a Jag.

Agreed.

A hard top definitely helps for me (because I would personally NEVER BUY A SOFT TOP CONVERTIBLE)

Still, I would've wanted for a RETRACTABLE HARD TOP (like what Mazda has or what Mercedes Benz makes)........but if they can't make it, then that's perfectly fine.

But yeah, it definitely opens the doors imho =)

R and R-S GT versions here we come
