F-TYPE Jaguar wins Best in Show honor for Paris debut

The all-new Jaguar F-TYPE  two-seater sports car has been named  the 2012 Autoweek Editors' Choice Award for Best in Show at the Paris motor show.   "Sleek, sexy and powerful, the F-TYPE becomes a new halo for Jaguar," Autoweek's
Digital Editor Andrew Stoy said. "Put the top down, fire up the engine - especially the supercharged 5.0-litre V8 - and all suddenly becomes right with the world. It's a car tocovet for anyone with a love of sports cars."

  The new Jaguar F-TYPE represents a return to the company's heart: a two seater convertible sports car focused on performance, agility and driver involvement. The F-TYPE is a continuation of a sporting bloodline that stretches back more than 75 years and encompasses some of the most beautiful, thrilling and desirable sports cars ever built.

    "The all-new Jaguar F-TYPE, our first new two seater sports car in 50 years, is incredibly important as it returns Jaguar to the heart of the sports car market and creates a new emotional fulcrum for the entire brand," said Andy Goss, President Jaguar Land Rover North America. "We appreciate Autoweek's recognition of the F-TYPE's design and performance credentials and its significance for our company, and car enthusiasts everywhere."

 The new F-Type is Powered respectively by 340hp and 380hp versions of Jaguar's new 3.0-litre V6 supercharged engine and a new derivative of its 5.0-litre V8 supercharged unit, each F-TYPE is engineered for pure dynamic driving reward and stunning performance and is due in showrooms next summer.
