The much-anticipated Jaguar F-Type has made its Australian debut in Sydney, under the watchful eye of designer Ian Callum and Jaguar's Global Operations Director Phil Popham.

Callum gave a short speech about his new creation, saying that while the convertible it is inspired by the E-Type, it's no copy.

He did however note that the narrow tail-lights were inspired by the E's iconic rear-end, and spoke of how the classic roadster has inspired him personally. (Click here for TMR's interview with Callum.)

Jaguar has made much of being a "founder member" of the sports-car club in recent months. The sentiment was echoed by Callum as he recounted the legacy of William Lyons and the SS 90 and 100 of the 1930s, right through to the 1961 E-Type.

The F-Type will be available in Australia with three supercharged engines - two V6s in 250kW and 280kW trim and a V8 kicking out 365kW and 625Nm of twist.

The 'slowest' F-Type rockets to 100km/h in 5.1 seconds while the V8 dispatches th for a 4.2 second time.

All will come with the eight-speed automatic, no manual transmission is planned.

The F-Type's aluminium chassis is claimed to be 30 percent stiffer than anything else offered by Jaguar, which bodes well for the handling.

Australian pricing and availability is not yet announced but with the car's release not far away, it won't be too much longer.
