Back in April 2012, Jaguar officially confirmed that the F-Type sports car wold be coming, except they only confirmed it in a coupe version and a roadster version. Now, recent spy shots have revealed that an R version is also under development. Come on, anyone knows that all Jaguars come with their own R version, so this little development shouldn’t have taken anybody off-guard.

The future Jaguar F-Type R will be powered by the usual supercharged 5.0-liter V8 engine used in almost all the other R models, but detuned to around 450 HP, which is still pretty impressive for such a tiny sports car.

Compared to the standard F-Type, the R version will get a set of quad exhausts, more prominent front and rear bumpers, a new set of wheels, and a sportier interior.

It is believed that the R version will be launched at the same time as the standard version, so expect to see the new F-Type in all its glory later in September 2012.

Now all we need to complete the lineup is for the Jaguar F-Type RS to get picked.

Be it appearance or performance, it’s all about the sporty appeal.

You don’t even have to see it perform to be able to express your thoughts about how it looks massively fierce.

It’s because of the convertible feature and sleek parts of this car that makes it exude a thorough sporty vibe. Nevertheless, the performance it can pull off strengthens that evidence.
