Although the British didn’t provided many details about the new model, the press release, in which some teaser images appear, shows that Jaguar F-Type will have only two seats and will come under the bonnet with a potent petrol engine range, consequently a new family of turbocharged units. According to the specialized press in U.K., the most powerful engine will be a V6 Turbo, around 380 horsepower.

The new Jaguar F-Type will be positioned in the auto-market between Porsche 911 Convertible and Porsche Boxster, and will try to attract customers from both areas.

“A true sports car must be pure as design and shape. It was a privilege for me and my team to have the opportunity to produce this type of car. C-Type, D-Type and E-Type were sports cars that have remained faithful to the principles of the era in which they were born, and F-Type will be true to the principles of its era, one that is due to arrive,” said Ian Callum, Jaguar Design Director.

More information and official photos of the new Jaguar F-Type will be published by the British manufacturer in the second half of this year, before the official debut at Paris Motor Show 2012 in September.
