BORN TO PERFORM. Since the first Jaguar car was produced in 1935 we have pushed the boundaries of what is possible, inspired by our founder, Sir William Lyons. He insisted that every car the company produced combined performance and beauty like no other. This uncompromising vision leads through to the F-TYPE sports car. This definitive two-seater sports car continues a revered bloodline that began with the C, D and E-Type.
