An aural sample of Jaguar’s new F-TYPE

So now we know what Jaguar’s all-new Castle Bromwich-built sports car will be called.

The F-TYPE will launch as a convertible two-seater and will go on sale in 2013. Expect few visual changes from the C-X16 concept unveiled at Frankfurt last year when the all-aluminium drop-top debuts in production-ready form later this year.

Jaguar’s Director of Design, Ian Callum, said, “A true sports car needs to be pure in both its purpose and its form; to have the opportunity to produce such a car for Jaguar has been a privilege both for myself and for my team. The C-type, D-type and E-type Jaguars were all sports cars that held true to this principle in their era, and the F-TYPE will hold true to that same principle in its time, a time that is soon to arrive”.

You can read more about the car at Jaguar’s F-TYPE micro-site, or watch the video below for an aural taster of what’s to come. It sounds rather good…
