The F-Type production car will look like the C-X16 concept that was revealed at the 2011 Frankfurt Motor Show. Automobile Mag reports that the hybrid F-Type is “going to be fabulous.” Jaguar worked to maintain a pure, disciplined design that fits in with the car’s sporting nature. It will be launch as a roadster, with a coupe to follow at a later date. We will see the F-Type in production before the end of 2012, and it is expected to go on sale by the summer of 2013.
The 0-to-60-mph time is expected to be below five seconds and a top speed is over 180 mph. Jaguar says the F-Type, which will have an all-aluminum monocoque made in the U.K., will have a powertrain similar to the concept. The C-X16 used a a supercharged 3.0-liter V-6 engine and 94-hp electric motor.
Jaguar North America brand vice president David Pryor said that he expects America to be the largest market for the car with about 40 percent of all F-Types to be sold there. As a true sports car and the F-Type is expected to be an extremely strong seller.
The average Jaguar buyer is in their 50s, however, the buyer of the F-Type is expected to be younger due to the lower price point. The F-Type is a real car for real people. It is much less expensive and more readily available than the C-X75.
