Jaguar has released a new promotional video of the 2013 F-Type undergoing testing at Nardo and the Nürburgring.
Set to debut at the Paris Motor Show, the roadster is heavily influenced by the C-X16 concept and features LED-infused headlights, a ventilated hood and an aggressive front fascia.
Power will be provided by a supercharged 3.0-liter V6 engine that has outputs of 340 PS (250 kW / 335 hp) and 450 Nm (332 lb-ft) of torque as well as 380 PS (279 kW / 375 hp) and 460 Nm (339 lb-ft) of torque. There will also be a "new derivative" of the company's supercharged 5.0-liter V8 engine that promises to deliver "stunning performance."
According to Jaguar's chief engineer Mike Cross, "Fundamentally, a great sports car is one you'll look forward to driving because it's fun, and the F-Type definitely delivers on that score. We've worked hard to make sure that responses to steering, throttle and brakes are absolutely immediate, a task made far easier by the rigid aluminum structure at the car's base. It's precise and exciting, a car that you'll want to drive for the sake of driving alone - and it sounds fantastic!"
