Back in November 2011, during the Los Angeles Auto Show, Jaguar showcased a two-door sports car concept known as the C-X16 Concept. The company received numerous positive feedbacks about the car and this has made Jaguar to push the car into production. And the car you see in the picture above will be known as the Jaguar F-Type.

The car will be available by early 2013 in roadster form first and a coupe version will follow suit later on. The carís construction will be made mostly out of aluminium, just like the XK. It will be available in several petrol engine options, plus one new to the Jaguar engine line-up.

The new engine will be most likely a production version of the supercharged 3.0 litre V6 which was featured in the C-X16 Concept (second picture from top). That particular engine delivered 375bhp and 450Nm of torque. This enables the car to complete the century sprint in 4.4 seconds.

Adrian Hallmark, Jaguarís Global Brand Director, said that the C-X16ís development was a vivid representation of the confidence and ambition of the company,; and the desire amongst their engineers and design team to produce a world-leader in a market segment that the company have been absent from for too long.

Jaguar recently launched a marketing campaign, named Alive, which is tasked to create a stir among the public about the companyís badging and line-up. The F-Type will be the centrepiece of this campaign and efforts to promote the car will increase in the coming months. The company added that it is no secret that the United States will be the F-Typeís primary target since it is has the largest sports car market in the world.

More of the F-Type will be available in the upcoming months.
