Jaguar F-type prototype (2013): the testing videos

Published: 05 April 2012

As Jaguar confirmed its new F-type sports car at the 2012 New York auto show, it issued some teaser video footage of the new £55,000 roadster landing in showrooms in spring 2013.

Jag ambassador and former racer Martin Brundle hitches a lift with the company's chief dynamics engineer Mike Cross for a few hot laps in the F-type prototype around its handling circuit at Gaydon.

We can safely ignore the hyperbole poring forth ('It's responsive, it's a great car to drive') but it's a good chance to see the all-aluminium F-type in action. And we have to say the new V6 petrol engine sounds great. 'Bloody quick, isn't it?' chimes Brundle after a few hot laps.
