“When designing the all-wheel drive version of the F-Type, our main task was to keep the attractive nature of the rear-wheel drive version, which is very important for the sports car of Jaguar brand, in this case we wanted to make the car even more dynamic,” – said Ian Hoban, the head of the development team of all Jaguar lineup.

The event, which became a place of demonstration of F-Type R Coupe, took place in the South African desert Hakskeen Pan. Jaguar has wanted thus to demonstrate a partnership with the British team of supersonic vehicle Bloodhound SSC developers, whose aim was to develop the maximum speed of a vehicle up to 1,000 miles / hr (about 1600 km / h).

The full 2016 model range of Jaguar F-Type makes its debut at the auto show in Los Angeles on November 19.
