A group of scanned photos from what we assume to be an upcoming issue of Germany’s Auto Zeitung magazine (if the low quality pics aren’t playing games with our eyes) has shed plenty of light on the all-new and promising Jaguar F-Type Coupe ahead of its world premiere tonight at the LA Auto Show.
Our first impression is that Jag’s new hardtop model is a sleek looking cat that is pretty much identical to the British firm’s 2011 C-X16 Concept with only some very minor changes such as the black glass roof, though, this may be an option (frankly, I find the concept‘s non-glass roof better looking).
From the few things were able to read in the article, it appears that the coupe will carry on with the same engine range as the Roadster model, including a 3.0-liter supercharged V6 in 335HP (340PS) and 375HP (380PS) flavors, and the 488HP (495PS) supercharged V8, with the addition of a range-topping 542HP (550PS) supercharged V8 for the more-hardcore “R” variant.
We’ll find out all the details once Jaguar presents the car tonight.
Thanks to ‘Rog’ for the tip !
Update: Spy photographer Chris Doane has dropped a few more photos of the new F-Type Coupe.
