2013 Jaguar F-Type Interior Leaked Before Paris Debut

2013 Jaguar F-Type Interior Leaked Before Paris Debut

Detailed photos of the 2013 Jaguar F-Type just leaked leaving almost nothing for the automaker to show later this week in Paris during the car’s official debut.

With a starting 3.0-liter supercharged V6 engine that makes either 340 or 380 hp depending on the configuration, or an even more potent 5.0-liter supercharged V8 in the F-Type R boasting  550 hp and 500 lb-ft of torque it’s easy to imagine how impressive the car will be.

But imagination is for dreamers and apparently afraid there weren’t enough in the world, the company released a series of teaser videos. Those clips came after an initial leak showing the car sans-camo, but the footage featured the car re-dressed.

Then earlier today, that same photo came directly from the company in higher resolution – a confirmation that the leaked photo was legitimate. Now, a bank of new pictures is showing the car in even greater detail and loads of new angles.

The newest of those show its interior, which looks to come loaded with soft-touch materials, in close detail. Those pictures also show the car with paddle shifters which will govern its standard eight-speed automatic transmission. Customers will still be able to row their own gears, but will have to elect for the optional manual transmission to do so.

This is also the first time it’s taillights, which are an evolution on the cat’s eye-like equipment seen on the XK’s rear end, have been fully visible. They carry a  longer and sharper look that make its stance look lower and wider.

Pictures in the gallery below also show cars with two different kinds of wheels and a car with dual exhaust tips and one with four. Check back for more during AutoGuide’s live coverage.
