Jaguar dealers from across the UK will take delivery of their first Jaguar F-TYPE sports cars at a ceremonial
hand-over event scheduled for Thursday, 18th April, 2013 (local time). The Ricoh Arena, a landmark in Jaguar’s historic
home town of Coventry, will host the event which will see fifty-nine Jaguar dealers from all over the UK collect the keys
to their F-TYPE demonstrators before setting off in spectacular convoy along the A444.
The fifty-nine Jaguar F-TYPEs will be arranged in the shape of the letter F in the car park ahead of the hand-over,
while the F-TYPE's 'old time' successor, the last Jaguar E-type ever produced, will not only be on display outside the
Ricoh Arena's north entrance but will also lead the procession out.
Designed and engineered in Coventry, and built at the new home of Jaguar manufacturing in Castle Bromwich, Jaguar’s
all-new rear-wheel drive two-seater sports car is one of the most highly-anticipated cars of the year. Its lightweight
all-aluminium architecture, stunning design and finely-tuned driving dynamics combine to ensure the F-TYPE is the
ultimate expression of Jaguar sports car 'DNA'. The model range includes the V6 model, V6S and V8S.
Jeremy Hicks, Managing Director of Jaguar UK, said: "Ever since Jaguar unveiled the F-TYPE at the Paris Motor Show
last September, enthusiasts all over the UK have been anticipating their first encounter with this exciting new sports
"Jaguar is synonymous with Coventry," he continued, "so it is fitting that we conduct the ceremonial
hand-over to the dealer network in the grounds of one of this great City's landmarks."
