The Jaguar F-TYPE R Coupe was revealed Tuesday night at a luxurious event held in an old airplane hanger, now used for filming, before the Los Angeles Auto Show.
Mogul Simon Cowell and Model Miranda Kerr were joined by Kelly Osborne and other celebrities for a very Hollywood debut.
“Creating a sports Coupé is the purest of design tasks, and also the most challenging; get it right and aesthetically the result will be as dynamic as the car should be rewarding to drive. In F-TYPE Coupé, I believe we’ve got it right. The dramatic debut of the 550PS F-TYPE R Coupé in Los Angeles this evening – possibly the most dynamic reveal of a car ever – underlines its performance credentials.” – Ian Callum, Director of Design, Jaguar.
The F-TYPE R Coupé sports a 5.0-litre V8 super-charged engine allowing acceleration from 0-60mph in 4.0-seconds, with a maximum speed of 186mph.
