Jaguar F-TYPE At Goodwood Festival of Speed


Jaguar’s forthcoming F-TYPE sports car made its first public debut at Goodwood’s Festival of Speed last weekend. The car was driven up the famous Goodwood Hill by Mike Cross, Jaguar’s Head of Vehicle Integrity. This was the first time the F-TYPE which was a Supercharged V6 model ran with its hood down. Commenting on the F-TYPE, Mike said: “The F-TYPE 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!” Also commenting on the car was Adrian Hallmark, Global Brand Director, Jaguar Cars who said: “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.”
