Jaguar F-Type Coupe Patent FilingEnlarge Photo
It's no secret that Jaguar will likely bring a coupe version of the new F-Type sports car to market soon. Now we have what could be confirmation--and a rendering--of what the F-Type Coupe could look like, thanks to a recent patent filing.
Spotted by Germany's Auto Motor und Sport, the patent reveals images said to be the F-Type Coupe in its final design stage.
The coupe's design is of course related to the F-Type convertible now on sale, albeit with a fixed roof and raked rear glass. It's also clearly inspired by the C-X16 concept from 2011, which itself was a coupe.
Under the hood, the F-Type Coupe is said to feature the same three engines as the droptop model: two supercharged V-6 units and a range-topping, supercharged V-8 engine. An eight-speed automatic with paddle shifters will be the sole transmission at launch, though we still predict a manual transmission is coming in the future.
There will reportedly be a new engine option for the base F-Type Coupe; a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder. Rated at 240 horsepower, this would be the same engine that Land Rover uses in the 2013 Land Rover Range Rover Evoque. For those keeping track, this engine is derived from Ford's EcoBoost of the same displacement; the engine that's in the 2013 Fusion and 2013 Focus ST.
