Finally on August 10th 2012, Jaguar decided to reveal the date of its launch of two-seater F-type sports car into the world. The body of the car has been made from pure aluminium and the covers will be thrown off the car at the Paris Motors Show which is slated to be held on 27th September. The car will go into production stage following the show and Jaguar is pretty optimistic regarding the response that the car would generate from the enthusiasts.
Adrian Hallmark, who happens to be the Global Brand Director of Jaguar Cars, will be the one to kick off the launchand gave a statement saying that Jaguar F-Type will mark the re-entry of Jaguar into the sports car sector where the presence of the company had lately been marked as dormant in comparison to its compatriots. Jaguar was one of the prime companies which took the sports car industry ahead and then backed out of the league as it wanted to focus more on the concept of luxury sedans. Now the company feels that it is time to dig up the past and venture into the sports car industry once again with the Jaguar F-type launch which has already generated a lot of hype in the industry and amongst Jaguar enthusiasts. Jaguar F-type is all set to showcase the latest ventures of Jaguar as well as the advancements made by them in the field of advanced automobile engineering which in turn would give a high level of performance to the functionality of the car altogether.
Thus Jaguar F-type promises to give cut-throat competition to its counterparts of Ferrari, Lamborghini, Aston Martin and Maserati. Jaguar had been working on the ergonomics of the car since a long time as they knew that since they were about to venture into the sports-car industry again, so they needed to have a trump card for that. The design of the car has also been done in such a manner so as to ensure that the car is aerodynamically viable to push away any resistance that comes from air when the car is in motion. Jaguar plans to roll out F-Type in three variants all of which will run on petrol solely. The car will be a convertible and engines would range from 340-380 PS having 3.0 Litre supercharged V6 or 5.0 Litre V8 engine which is already there on the roads. All the three models will be running on an 8-speed transmission technology. Adding to this, there would be a start/stop technology which will be operative in all the three variants.
It took a lot of research and around 300TB of data to come up to a final model of the car with a design that was changed umpteen times during the course of manufacturing of the car. Thus, this much amount of time surely would force the enthusiasts to expect a lot from Jaguar which it launches the masterpiece.
