If you’re a fan of the new Jaguar F-Type, or simply want to see what this exciting new sports car will look like in the flesh, you might want to pay a visit to this year’s Goodwood Festival of Speed in southern England. A development prototype of the new sports car will make its public debut at the annual gathering.

Using all-aluminum construction, the F- Type will launch as a two-seater convertible in the summer of 2013, promising a rewarding drive. Powered by a supercharged V6 or V8 engine, the F- Type is currently undergoing development at places like the company’s Nürburgring test facility, as well as the most challenging roads, extreme temperature and harshest environments ahead of its launch.

The F-TYPE will be driven up the famous Goodwood hillclimb by Jaguar’s Head of Vehicle Integrity, Mike Cross.

Adrian Hallmark from Jaguar explained: “The Goodwood Festival of Speed is focused on the dynamic hillclimb where the public can see, hear and smell the cars – this is why we chose it as the place to showcase an F-Type prototype.”
