The Jaguar F-TYPE is the first two-seater sports car from luxury car manufacturers Jaguar, since the iconic E-type was first launched 50 years ago. Jaguar has just released an intriguing movies trailer featuring the new F-Type. The short feature film in association with Ridley Scott Associates will be released later this spring and stars Golden Globe and Emmy Award winning actor, Damian Lewis. Casper Delaney, Producer, Ridley Scott Associates was quoted, “After weeks and months of working on the script and developing the film with Jaguar, it’s fantastic to see it come to life.” Lana Del Rey, who recently won a BRIT award for Best International Female, wrote the title song “Burning Desire” that was inspired by the Jaguar F-TYPE.

The new F-TYPE sports car is a front-engined, rear-wheel drive convertible that’s been engineered to deliver a pure dynamic driving experience and incredible performance. The F-TYPE is constructed using high strength aluminum architecture. There will be three different car models available – F-TYPE (with 3-liter supercharged V6, 340hp engine), F-TYPE S (with 3-liter supercharged V6, 380hp engine)and the F-TYPE V8 S (with 5-liter V8, 495hp supercharged engine).

Of course, speed is a popular trademark of any Jaguar luxury car and the F-TYPE will surely not disappoint. The most powerful model, the V8S, will reach 60mph in 4.2 seconds and has a top speed of 186mph. The 380Hp F-TYPE S V6 can reach 60mph in 4.8 seconds and 171mph.
