if you just glance the front on shots, it does look like a California. The back is really moody though, really like that rear.

As Aston's biggest fanboy... this is not good news for Aston!

Looks fabulous, love the roadster cloud9

I wasn't convinced by the first press shots the other day, but now.... That car has WANT written all over it.

One of the best sounding cars you'll hear this side of a Ferrari. So, so, so much want.

I think this will be the hotest car of 2013. JLR just made themselves another winner.

I haven't been following any of the threads talking about the F-Type concept models, renders and other such stuff. But these pics of the coupe don't look too shabby, even in white. Apologies if you've already seen them.

Edited by Hellbound on Wednesday 26th September 20:28
Havent seen those before - cheers smile

Loving the Coupe - I am not a huge fan of convertibles, the coupe is gorgeous...want want want

Though if the 74k Euro price is true its going to struggle against the new Boxster and Cayman.

According to the Telegraph "the base model weighs almost 1.6 tons"

Stunning car, probably would want one of these more than an equivalent Aston.

Only thing... from front 3/4 view, the rear looks a little truncated perhaps.

I must admit, that is a great looking car, and in black just looks mean, dam!

Front reminds me a bit of a California and 599, no bad thing I guess, but the rear is pretty unique, still a big WANT. Just hope it doesn't get adopted as a hairdresser special

+1 with all the positive comments.

First Jaguar with appeal for a youngerish generation (mid-30's man).

My F-car fund is already on lift off! (Fun Car Fund)

- dark colour options would appear to look awesome (plus even white).
- coupe looks more attractive still than the convertible.
- cannot wait for the GT3 type R-S version with a hardtop and spoiler.

First time that the GT3 Porsche option looks like it may get some new and competent challenge!

very exciting and good times for JLR, hats off to them.

It's not bad, but it isn't 10% of what a true follow up to the E type should be.

Nice, but no legend.

Looks great, but yet again demanding sports car drivers who CAN tell the difference are going to be robbed of a mechanical lsd on the most powerful Jag, which would give consistent precisely controllable oversteer IF the right foot requests it. According to the demanding road test journalists (Evo, Autocar) no electro-pseudo-lsd has come close to that yet, which is why the best of the Jag's competitors have a mechanical one.

Mike Cross either doesn't 'get' real sports car handling, or more likely has to pander to the average driver. frown

Expecting Jaguar to produce a legend, comparable to the E-Type, in my opinion is asking way, way to much of them. Your expectations were clearly set far too high.

according to another british mag :

it is expensive - from £58,500 to £80,000 for the V8

it is big - 21mm shorter than than 911, 128mm longer than boxster - 115mm wider than 911

it is heavy - 1596kg for the lightest, which is only 63kg lighter than the XK 5.0 V8, and +207kg compare to 911, +250kg compare to boxster...

the boot is only 200L. a Z4 with hard top folded in is 180L...

How would you envisage a "true follow up to the E type"? Genuine question.
