Jaguar to Debut F-Type Design Study at Goodwood

Jaguar has confirmed that they will be unveiling an F-Type design study, based on the F-Type convertible, at Goodwood Festival of Speed this weekend (11 – 14 July). The unique vehicle will be unleashed on the famous Goodwood Hill Climb with the company’s Chief Engineer, Vehicle Integrity, Mike Cross behind the wheel.

In addition Jaguar will also debut three new “R” vehicles in the UK for the first time; the brand new XJR, powered by a supercharged, 550 PS, 5.0-litre V8 engine and the limited edition XKR-S GT, which is the most track-focused road-going Jaguar ever produced, will both be driven up the hill over the course of the weekend. To give some celebrity appeal, six time Olympian Champion Sir Chris Hoy will drive the XKR-S GT on Friday 12th July in the Supercar Run, with Gran Turismo Playstation game produce Kazunori Yamauchi, taking the wheel on Saturday. The Jaguar XFR-S high performance saloon will also make its first public appearance during the festival.

Not forgetting their heritage fleet, Jaguar will also have these out in full force on the Hill throughout the weekend at Goodwood. These will include a record breaking Jaguar XK 120, an iconic Jaguar D-Type, a Group C Jaguar XJR-9 which won Le Mans in 1988 as well as the only Jaguar XJ13 in existence.
Visitors will also be able to view a range of the new Jaguar vehicles in the brand’s eye-catching two-story pavilion. Models on display will include the XFR-S performance saloon; the new XJR flagship and the recently released XF Sportbrake. The jewel in the crown, the new F-Type sports car will also be on show, along with a stunning new art installation, inspired by Jaguar design, created by Royal College of Art Students.

The new Range Rover Sport will also get its UK moving debut at the festival and will be driven up the Hill twice each day. Land Rover has chosen to show off the V8 model which, thanks to its 5.0-litre supercharged petrol engine, can crack 0-62mph in just 5.3 seconds.
