will make its public debut at the Paris Motor Show on September 27, Jaguar said in an official announcement today. The fully aluminum, two-seat sports car will be available with three engines: two tunes of Jaguar's new 3.0-liter supercharged V6 with either 340ps or 380ps and a supercharged 5.0-liter V8. All versions of the car will be rear-wheel drive with an eight-speed automatic transmission with stop/start tech. 

"As its sporting forebears did in their era, the F-TYPE will break new ground by delivering stunning sports car performance while vividly demonstrating Jaguar's cutting-edge engineering technologies and world-class design excellence. The next step in Jaguar's sporting bloodline is about to become reality," said Adrian Hallmark, Global Brand Director of Jaguar Cars.

Jaguar has done a fantastic job of getting the word out about the F-Type. It has put out videos and images of the camouflaged cars and drove it up the hill at Goodwood. 

"When you are working on a Jaguar sports car the expectations of the world are huge. We're really pleased how the attributes have translated from the virtual simulation work we've done into the physical world," said Ian Hoban, Jaguar's Vehicle Line Director.
