First sight of gorgeous new hardtop Jag sports car – and surprise 500-hp R version

Jaguar has unveiled the new F-type Coupe - the spiritual successor to the fabled Jag E-type - at a star-studded event on the eve of the Los Angeles Auto Show. And the closed-top F-Type coupe came with a surprise: there will be a high-performance F-Type Coupe R model available at launch, boasting a Porsche-baiting 550-hp.This makes it the fastest F-type to date, dispatching the benchmark 0-96 km/h drag race in a blistering 4.0sec. A party trick that was amply displayed at a Hollywood-style unveiling in the Raleigh Studios, when the coupe roared down a runway towards a celebrity-packed audience including Simon Cowell, Miranda Kerr and Kelly Osbourne - only to disappear through a tunnel hidden beneath the crowd.
