Jaguar Land Rover‘s Special Vehicle Operations division has unveiled a bespoke F-Type coupe.

The unique F-Type was built as a high-performance support vehicle to use during Stage 20 of the 2014 Tour de France and was done as an innovative partner to Team Sky. Based on the F-Type R coupe, powered by a 550-hp 5.0-liter supercharged engine, the Team Sky F-Type will be a one-off featuring a new racking solution and Team Sky’s famous livery.
