Another leak becomes motor-show reality today, with Jaguar's F-TYPE Coupe making its debut simultaneously in Tokyo and Los Angeles.

Joining the Roadster that appeared on the international scene in 2012, the F-TYPE Coupe will land in Australian showrooms toward the end of next year.

Today's unveiling has been a long-time coming for Jaguar fans: while it revealed the C-X16 coupe concept in 2011, Jaguar chose to roll out the roadster before launching the hardtop cat.

In Coupe form, the F-TYPE drops the Roadster's V8 S trim, but adds the more heroic R model to replace it.

Producing a hefty 404kW - up from 365kW of the Roadster V8 S - the new F-TYPE R Coupe promises a 0-100km/h time of just 4.2 seconds.

Pouncing out of highway-cruising, it'll go from 80 to 120km/h in a mere 2.4 seconds, on its way to a top speed of 300km/h on the dot.

Of course, the Roadster's other engines fill out the rest of the Coupe range, with the 250kW supercharged V6 Coupe joined by the 280kW V8 S Coupe.

Those models promise 0-100km/h times of 5.3 and 4.9 seconds respectively (and respectably), with top speeds of 260 and 275km/h.

(The coupe has also been reported as the debut point for a new turbo four-cylinder model, although that has yet to eventuate.)

Elsewhere in the Coupe, you'll find a new and enhanced second-generation version of Jaguar's Electronic Active Differential, along with - at last - a torque vectoring system.

The Coupe's handling is also helped by its more rigid design, thanks in large part to its hardtop design, but also to a re-tuned suspension package.

Spring rates are up 4.3 percent at the front and 3.7 percent at the rear, and in the F-TYPE R, Jaguar has also recalibrated the Adaptive Dynamics system that manages the adaptive dampers.

Importantly, the F-TYPE Coupe also boasts a saving of around 21kg in unsprung weight, adding further to handling improvements.



The F-TYPE Coupe will hit Australia in the third quarter of 2014, with pricing and specs to be confirmed closer to launch.
