The Jaguar F-Type R Coupé has made its public debut in Los Angeles at Raleigh Studios.
The first glimpse the assembled 500 media, celebrities and customers at the exclusive reveal event saw of F-TYPE R Coupé was of it accelerating towards them before it passed under their grandstand into a hidden tunnel at full throttle.
Ian Callum, Director of Design, Jaguar 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 550PS F-TYPE R Coupé inLos Angeles this evening – possibly the most dynamic reveal of a car ever – underlines its performance credentials.”
The F-Type Coupé model line-up is headlined by theF-Type R Coupé. The R Coupe is powered by a 550PS/680Nm 5.0-litre V8 supercharged engine which enables it to accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in 4.0-seconds, and hit a top speed of 186mph (limited).
