Jaguar will send its new XFR-S, XJR and XKR-S GT models to this year's Goodwood Festival of Speed, along with a new “design study” of its F-Type convertible sports car.

Fans will be able to see the XKR-S GT in action for the first time, driven by six-time Olympic champion Sir Chris Hoy, while Jaguar Chief Engineer Mike Cross will tackle the hill climb in the F-Type, based on the C-X16 concept.

The other new Jaguar R models will be on show in the Supercar Paddock, and examples of the XJR-9, XJ13, D-Type and XK 120 will all be on show in the Heritage Heroes.

News of the F-Type design study appearing at Goodwood broke in late June, with Jaguar Brand Director Adrian Hallmark reminding us that the car we’ll see there won’t be the finished product.

"Goodwood Festival of Speed is focused around the dynamic hill runs where the public can see, hear and smell the cars – this is why we have chosen it as the place to showcase an F-Type prototype," Mr Hallmark said.

"The development programme is progressing with vigour and we look forward to showing the world the F-Type in production form later this year."

Jaguar has confirmed a supercharged 5.0 litre V8 (possibly with 365kW) and a 280kW supercharged 3.0 litre V6 as engine options for the F-Type.

The big cat has also confirmed pricing for the F-Type roadster due in Australia in September, with the base 250kW V6 starting from $139,000 plus on-road costs.
