Jaguar supercar put on hold
We have to remind you that the supercar had been confirmed at the 2009 Detroit Auto Show by company boss Mike O’Driscoll and spy shots have suggested that it was built as a competitor for the Audi R8. It was based on an all-new aluminum chassis and was supposed to use the same 5.0-liter supercharged V8 as the XFR. The target with the next supercar was a sprint from 0 to 60 mph in less than four seconds and a top speed of 225.
However, it seems that Jaguar decided to put it on hold and make room for the F-Type roadster. This actually makes sense because the F-type has been rumored for so long that it seems appropriate to unveil it to the world first. The economical situation also provides for the F-type roadster to better in sales than a supercar.
