2014 Jaguar F-Type video teaser drops ahead of Paris motor showWed, 19 Sep 2012
Readers have spotted both V6- and V8-powered examples of the upcoming Jaguar F-Type hiding in plain sight in the western United States. Spy photos might not satisfy our craving for detailed specifications on the sleek roadster—we won't know much more until the car debuts at the 2012 Paris motor show—but they have convinced us that the new Jaguar will be pleasing to the eye.
The above teaser video suggests that the F-Type will be as attractive in motion as it is in still photos. The dramatic voiceover by Jaguar engineer Ian Hoban gives us a bit of insight into the design rationale behind the creation of the new roadster—although, frankly, we wish he'd have kept quiet and simply let the car's engine do the talking.
The 2012 Paris motor show—or Mondail de l'Automobile, as it is officially known––will take place Sept. 27 through Oct. 14. It occurs every two years, alternating with the Frankfurt motor show in Germany. Paris is a showcase for the latest in design, but automakers will also be showing off their latest concept cars, green cars and supercars.
