2014 JAGUAR F-TYPE COUPE AUSTRALIA

Jaguar has confirmed that its hotly anticipated F-TYPE Coupe will make its production debut simultaneously at this month's Los Angeles and Tokyo motor shows, ahead of an early 2014 launch.

The new coupe's coming has been expected for some time, with the current F-TYPE roadster first appearing as the C-X16 coupe concept back in 2011.

In more recent months, spy photos and leaked patent images have all but assured fans that a new hardtop F-TYPE would soon appear.

Jaguar says the F-TYPE Coupe will be the "most dynamically capable and performance-focused production Jaguar ever", benefiting from a more rigid construction - and likely also from lessons learned with the droptop model.

“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," Jaguar design boss Ian Callum said. (See TMR's interview with Callum here.)

“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.”

As expected - and as with the current Roadster model - the Coupe is likely to come to market with few styling changes, maintaining much of the original C-X16 concept's look.

The F-Type Coupe's mechanical setup will mirror the Roadster, with powerful six- and eight-cylinder engine options and an eight-speed automatic transmission.

The Coupe is also rumoured to be the debut point for an entry-level 2.0 litre four-cylinder option, taking the 180kW engine currently featured in the Range Rover Evoque.

The F-TYPE Convertible range was unveiled at the Paris auto show in September 2012 and consists of three models, the 250kW V6-powered F-TYPE, the 280kW F-TYPE S, and the 365kW F-TYPE V8 S.
