Ceremonial handover of Jaguar F-Type slated on April 18

Article by Anita Panait, on April 17, 2013

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.

Every single detail of a sports vehicle, dimensionally, enables us to generate something that is graphically enticing; instinctive as well as substantial. The sports vehicle design is synonymous with ambition, covering the passengers and mechanicals in the most exhilarating, alluring, and hedonistic package available with no unwanted surfaces or embellishment. A part of the design should narrate a story and this is why every single line in the F-Type has a beginning, a course, and a resolution. If you undertake every line personally and get as artistically precise as possible, and get the sizes correctly, it will endure the test of time.

The headlights flow vertically instead of horizontally, which guides the eye effortlessly up and along the fender crease. Technology has smoothed out the design language of the Jaguar F-Type; the close-packed xenon unit needs just one projector, while the J-Blade LED running lights further highlight the layout of the heartline running through the lamp.

The grille bends slightly forward to generate a hint of motion when the car is motionless. The lower edge of the clamshell hood makes the top of the side vent. The mesh in the grille and side vents is a hexagonal style that yields an illustrious field of depth.

The concealed, automatically deploying door handles aids with the purity of its design. The handles stay flush with the door panel until actuated by either unlocking the car with the key fob or tapping a touch-sensitive surface of the handle. Their instinctive deployment allows a mechanical “handshake,” requesting the driver and passenger to come in. Once the car commences movement, the handles withdraw to create a continuous aerodynamic surface.
