First Drive: Jaguar's New F-Type Sports Car (Video) - The Hollywood Reporter


The highly anticipated F-type marks Jaguar's return to the two-seat sports car category that the carmaker defined with the iconic E-type, introduced in 1961, a favorite of Steve McQueen and Hollywood royalty throughout the 1960s. (Jay Leno owns a mint 1963 XKE.)
The F-type honors the E-type's legacy while boasting a muscular profile that subtly quotes Jaguar design director Ian Callum's designs for the XK and XJ models, which revived the brand after a protracted slump.
Look for the F-type, which goes on sale this month priced from $69,000-$92,000 depending on trim level and engine (the base model comes with a 340 horsepower 3.0 liter supercharged V6) to give Porsche's Boxster, BMW's Z4 and Mercedes-Benz's SLK sports cars some serious competition for the coolest cat in the Hollywood jungle.
