A landmark event is being held in Jaguar’s historic home town of Coventry at the Ricoh arena. 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 handover, while the F-TYPE’s spiritual 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 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. Prices for the Jaguar F-TYPE start at £58,520 for the 340 PS V6 model. The 380hp V6S starts from £67,520 while the 495hp Jaguar F-TYPE V8S is priced at £79,985.[quote]Jeremy Hicks, Managing Director of Jaguar UK, said: “Jaguar is synonymous with Coventry,” he continued, “so it is fitting that we conduct the ceremonial handover to the dealer network in the grounds of one of this great City’s landmarks.”[/quote]
