Jaguar say that development of the new F-Type two-seater roadster is going along nicely, after the car dropped its top and made its official public debut at the Goodwood Festival of Speed in Britain.
A supercharged V6 model was driven up the Goodwood hill by Jaguar's Head of Vehicle Integrity, Mike Cross, who said that the car “will deliver a driver-focused sports car experience, and camouflaged prototypes like this one are currently being tested all over the world. The development programme is right on schedule, and coming here today to showcase just a little of the dynamic precision, noise, speed and excitement that the production F-TYPE will exhibit is very satisfying. The reaction of the crowd has been fantastic - I'd like to keep running it up the hill all day!"

The 3.0-liter supercharged V6 will be offered with either 340 or 380 horsepower. There will also be a supercharged V8 in the F-Type R, delivering in excess of 500 horsepower.

Said Adrian Hallmark, Global Brand Director, Jaguar Cars: "When we announced the F-TYPE's development at New York in April of this year, we were delighted with the positive reaction from the press and public alike. The F-TYPE will be a true sports car, so to be able to give the fans here at Goodwood a first-hand flavour of the sight and sound of Jaguar's exciting future is a great privilege."
