ALL-NEW F-TYPE R COUPÉ REVEALED AT HIGH-SPEED DURING EXCLUSIVE LOS ANGELES VIP EVENT

Jaguar celebrated its innovation in design and technology with a highly theatrical and dramatic reveal at Raleigh Studios in Playa Vista, California. The first glimpse the assembled media, celebrities and customers at the exclusive event saw of F-TYPE R Coupé was of it accelerating towards them before it passed under their grandstand at full throttle.

The evening captured the hearts of British and international fans of the brand, including Simon Cowell, Miranda Kerr, Nicholas Hoult, Joe Manganiello, Kelly Osbourne, David Gandy, Yasmin Mills, Jodie Kidd, singer-songwriter Andra Day and, host of CarCast, Adam Carolla, as they celebrated Jaguar's heritage and the arrival of its all-new sports coupé.

The celebration was led by Jaguar's Director of Design, Ian Callum, who said: "Creating a sports coupé is the purest of design tasks and also the most challenging; get it right and aesthetically the result will be as dynamic as the car should be rewarding to drive. In F-TYPE Coupé, I believe we've got it right.

"The dramatic debut of the 404kW F-TYPE R Coupé in Los Angeles this evening - possibly the most dynamic reveal of a car ever - underlines its performance credentials."

The all-aluminium Jaguar F-TYPE Coupé model line-up is headlined by the F-TYPE R Coupé, its 404kW/680Nm 5.0-litre supercharged V8 engine enabling acceleration from 0-100 km/h in 4.2 seconds, and a top speed of 300 km/h (limited). F-TYPE S Coupé and F-TYPE Coupé models complete the range, powered respectively by 280kW and 250kW versions of Jaguar's 3.0-litre supercharged V6 engine, giving 0-100 km/h in 4.9/5.3 seconds and top speeds of 275/260 km/h.

The F-TYPE Coupé range complements the existing 2013 'World Car Design of the Year' award-winning F-TYPE Convertible model line-up of V6-engined F-TYPE (250kW) and F-TYPE S (280kW), and the F-TYPE V8 S (364kW).

F-TYPE Coupé deliveries to Australia will commence in 2014 on a date that is still to be confirmed.
