Jaguar F-Type debuts at the Paris Motor Show 2012.

The F-Type, Jaguar’s all-new sports car, will make its public debut this week at the Paris Auto Show.

A front-engined, rear-wheel drive convertible, three models of F-Type will be available. Powered respectively by 340PS and 380PS versions of Jaguar’s new 3.0-litre V6 supercharged petrol engine and a new derivative of its 5.0-litre V8 supercharged unit, each F-Type has apparently been engineered for pure dynamic driving reward and stunning performance.

 A man who knows better than most the driving experience that the F-Type will deliver is Mike Cross, Chief Engineer, Vehicle Integrity, Jaguar: “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 aluminium 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.”

We wait with bated breath to see the first pictures later in the week.
