The first glimpse the assembled media, celebrities and customers saw of F-Type R Coupé was of it accelerating towards them, before it passed under their grandstand into a hidden tunnel at full throttle.

Ian Callum, Director of Design, Jaguar, said: "Creating a sports Coupé is the purest of design tasks, and also the most challenging; get it right and aesthetically the result will be as dynamic as the car should be rewarding to drive. In F-Type Coupé, I believe we've got it right… The dramatic debut of the 550hp F-Type R Coupé in Los Angeles this evening underlines its performance credentials."

The F-Type Coupé model line-up is headlined by the F-Type R Coupé. Its 550hp/680Nm 5.0-litre V8 supercharged engine enables acceleration from 0-60mph in 4.0-seconds, and a top speed of 186mph (limited).

F-Type S Coupé and F-Type Coupé models complete the range, powered respectively by 380hp and 340hp versions of Jaguar's 3.0-litre supercharged V6 engine, giving 0-60mph in 4.8/5.1-seconds and top speeds of 171/161mph.

The F-Type Coupé range complements the existing 2013 World Car Design of the Year award-winning F-Type Convertible model line-up of F-Type, F-Type S and F-Type V8 S.
