Jaguar F-Type X152

Production: 2013 - present

Production Type: Mass Production

The F-Type X152 is a series of grand tourers, It is the so-called "spiritual successor" to the famous E-Type. The car's JLR D6a platform is based on a shortened version of the XK's platform.  The F-Type name was first used on a pair of completely unrelated concepts as far back as 1982, when Jaguar realised that the XJ-S had grown too large in size and weight to be classed as a proper successor to the E-Type. Then, two new projects, codenamed the XJ41 (Coupé) and XJ42 (Convertible) got to an advanced state of development by 1988, however the project was cancelled when Ford Motor Company took over Jaguar in 1989. The XJ41/XJ42 studies ultimately evolved into the Aston Martin DB7 and the Jaguar XK8 which were launched in 1994 and 1996 respectively.
