Spied: 2014/2015 Jaguar F-Type Coupe

In case the 2014 Jaguar F-Type roadster is not quite shapely enough for you, here is a glimpse of the upcoming coupe version. Caught lapping the N├╝rburgring by our spy photographers, this coupe prototype looks close to production-ready.

The last time we spied an F-Type coupe testing, it was on public roads. The fact that Jaguar is now lapping this prototype at the N├╝rburgring could suggest that engineers are putting the final touches on the coupe’s handling prowess, especially given the additional structural rigidity that comes with a fixed-roof compared to a droptop.

The 2014 Jaguar F-Type roadster went on sale in the U.S. this year and starts at $69,895 for the model equipped with the 3.0-liter 340-hp supercharged V-6. Other models include the F-Type S with a 380-hp version of the 3.0-liter V-6, and the F-Type V-8 S with a 495-hp 5.0-liter V-8. All three engine options are paired with a ZF eight-speed automatic. The coupe model should feature these same powertrains, and even more powerful R and R-S versions are likely within the next year as well. Although some have maligned the lack of a manual transmission in this sports car, there is a distinct possibility that a row-your-own option will be available in the future.
 Look for the F-Type coupe to be officially released sometime in early 2014.
