Jaguar dealers from across the United Kingdom will take delivery of their first Jaguar F-TYPE sports cars at a ceremonial handover event slated on April 18, 2013. The ceremonial handover event will be held at the Ricoh Arena, located in the town of Coventry, and will see 59 Jaguar dealers from across the UK receive the keys to their F-TYPE demonstrators.

They will then set off in a spectacular convoy along the A444. The 59 Jaguar F-TYPEs will be arranged in the shape of the letter F in the car park before the handover. The F-TYPE's spiritual successor, the last Jaguar E-type produced, will be displayed outside the Ricoh Arena's north entrance and will also lead the procession out.

The Jaguar F-TYPE sports car, which is designed and engineered in Coventry and produced Jaguar’s plant in Castle Bromwich, is considered as one of the most highly-anticipated cars in 2013.The carmaker regards the F-TYPE as the ultimate expression of Jaguar sports car DNA, thanks to its lightweight all-aluminum architecture, spectacular design and finely tuned driving dynamics.

Interested buyers could acquire a Jaguar F-TYPE 340 PS V6 model for a starting price of £58,520. The Jaguar F-TYPE 380hp V6S has a starting price of £67,520 while the Jaguar 495hp F-TYPE V8S has a base tag of £79,985.

Jeremy Hicks, Managing Director of Jaguar UK, remarked that ever since the carmaker unveiled the F-TYPE at the Paris Motor Show in September 2012, enthusiasts from across the country have been eagerly waiting for the new sports car. After the handover, they could now acquire their own Jaguar F-TYPEs.
