Jaguar officially announced that the 2014 F-Type Coupe will be officially introduced this month, at the 2013 Los Angeles Auto Show as well as at the Tokyo Motor Show, on November 20. For many of you folks, the design of the new F-Type Coupe will not be a surprise as many of you saw the C-X16 Concept, unveiled back in September 2011 at the Frankfurt Motor Show.
Just like the F-Type Convertible, the Coupe is expected to receive the same engines. This means that the F-Type Coupe will get a 3.0-liter V6 engine with 340 PS, the F-Type S Coupe will get the same 3.0-liter V6 developing 380 PS, while the F-Type V8 S will get the 5.0-liter V8 capable to develop 495 PS and 625 Nm of torque.
The new F-Type Coupe will go on sale in Spring 2014. Ian Callum, Director of Design, Jaguar, said: "The excitement generated when we revealed the C-X16 concept was terrific; so to now be on the cusp of what I can assure you will be a drama-filled reveal event in Los Angeles for F-TYPE Coupé is a very significant moment."
"We've been overwhelmed by the positive reaction to F-TYPE Convertible, but for me the purity of creating a sports Coupé is a uniquely satisfying process - and I know that both visually and dynamically, F-TYPE Coupé raises the bar yet again."
Jaguar’s all-aluminium F-Type Coupé, the most capable performance-focused sports car ever from Jaguar, is available in three iterations: F-Type R, F-Type S and the F-Type.
Top-of-the-range F-Type R Coupé runs on Jaguar's 5.0-litre supercharged V8 engine in 550PS/680Nm tune, going from 0 to 60 mph in 4.0-seconds, and reaching a 186-mph top speed (electronically limited).
The F-Type S Coupé and F-Type Coupé run on Jaguar's 3.0-litre V6 supercharged gas engines in 380PS/460Nm and 340PS/450Nm forms, attaining 0-60mph in 4.8/5.1-seconds and top speeds of 171/161mph.
F-Type Coupé epitomises the uncompromising design vision of Jaguar’s extraordinary C-X16 concept introduced at the 2011 Frankfurt Motor Show, its vivid rear-facing stance is defined by three heartlines. The first two heartlines, like the F-Type Convertible, comprise the front and rear wings, and the third heartline from the flowing Coupé roof profile provides a continuous profile while accenting the visual artistry of the tapering sitting between the strong rear flanks.
