At Jaguar Santa Barbara, we are proud to share the latest awards earned by Jaguar.  The most recent is the ‘2014 Automotive Excellence Award for Design’ from Popular Mechanics magazine for the 2014 Jaguar F-TYPE. Every year, Popular Mechanics performs comprehensive test drives on virtually every new car on the market and celebrates the year’s best in the December/January issue’s ‘Automotive Excellence Awards.” The Jaguar F-TYPE was chosen as the winner in the ‘Design’ category due to its “head-turning lines, perfect proportion and evocating styling.”

“We’re thrilled that the Jaguar F-TYPE has received the ‘Automotive Excellence Award for Design’ from Popular Mechanics,” said Ian Callum, Director of Design, Jaguar. “A piece of design should tell a story, and this is why every line in the F-TYPE has a purity of purpose. As we head into the LA Auto Show and the reveal of the F-TYPE Coupe, we’re excited to see the F-TYPE Convertible recognized by such a credible publication.”

Jaguar has a rich history of beautifully-designed cars, and the F-TYPE lives up to its reputation.  The award comes as an addition to a slew of other awards from leading automotive experts and journals.

The new Jaguar F-TYPE represents a rebirth of the sports car in its purest form: a two-seat, convertible sports car focused on performance, agility and driver involvement. The F-TYPE is a continuation of a sporting bloodline that stretches back more than 75 years and encompasses some of the most beautiful, thrilling and desirable sports cars ever built. Jaguar cars have always defined sinuous, muscular elegance, and the F-TYPE continues — and advances — this tradition with new, assertive design language.

“We invited drivers to come visit our showroom and experience the Jaguar F-TYPE in person,” shares Jaguar Santa Barbara General Sales Manager, Scott Westbrook.

Jaguar recently announced that the 2015 F-TYPE Coupe will makes its global debut at an exclusive VIP event on the eve of the 2013 LA Auto Show. The all-aluminum F-TYPE Coupe range will deliver in production form the uncompromised design vision of the Jaguar C-X16 concept, and will complement the existing F-TYPE Convertible. The F-TYPE Coupe will go on sale in North America in spring of 2014.

The Jaguar F-TYPE Coupe is a pure Jaguar sports car. It combines effortless, exhilarating performance, instant response and precise, agile handling with everyday refinement and usability. The Jaguar supercharged 3.0 liter V6 340 hp engine delivers powerful and efficient performance. Developing 340 horsepower, this V6 is one of the new generation of supercharged engines from Jaguar. Powerful and refined, it delivers thrilling performance and a rewarding driving experience.
