We recently discussed the differences between the Jaguar F-Type Coupe and the Roadster version, and apart from their differing looks, there wasn’t many of them. Speaking of those looks, we haven’t had much to go on, considering the Coupe version will not be on the market until 2014, although this version has been seen out in testing.
While it’s hard to make out the finer details, we can see the overall shape, and it’s clear the Jaguar F-Type Coupe has a distinction that emulates the E-type. What we mean is the Jaguar E-Type was released as a convertible, and then there was the hardtop, and so the F-Type hopes to follow that success.
However, there’s no denying that the Roadster does look tens times better with its roof down, but as always, those beautiful looks are spoiled the moment the roof has to go up, only then does the Coupe come into its own.
The Jaguar F-Type Coupe is different to the Roadster, because the former has a gorgeous roofline, which then moves down and blends perfectly into the rear of the car. Some people will say how can you compare the F-Type to the E-Type, and I’d just like to say that I’m not, it’s just Jaguar knows they need to offer a convertible and hardtop in order to cater for different tastes – can’t see how Jaguar will ever top the E-Type?
Overall the Jaguar F-Type Coupe will be a huge hit for the company, just as the Roadster is, but the one thing letting it down is the lack of a manual option, what a huge oversight.
