We didn’t doubt that a roofed iteration of the sexy Jaguar F-Type would follow. And here it is: the F-Type Coupe is poised for its debut on 19 November, on the eve of the Los Angeles motor show.

The all-aluminium cat will boast some elements from the exciting C-X16 concept and you can expect it to have the same range of V6 and V8 supercharged engines, as found in the Roadster.

According to Jaguar Director of Design, Ian Callum, the Coupe is more than a mere Roadster with a roof slapped on. He did mention words like “purity” and “satisfying” – so perhaps buyers can expect this to be the more focussed of the two? Mind you, the standard Roadster is brilliant to drive and having the roof down just accentuates those glorious engine noises.

We’ll give you more details on the Coupe when they’re released later this month. In the meantime, click here to watch our video review of the F-Type Roadster. Or here to read the full assessment.
