    Jaguar Bringing All-Wheel-Drive F-Type To LA Auto Show

    Jaguar's big splash at last year's Los Angeles Auto Show was showing off the slinky F-Type Coupe; perhaps one of the loveliest car shapes on the road today. This year the company won't have a show-stopping new design to offer, but the news that all-wheel drive is coming to the F-Type range is, nevertheless, pretty spectacular.

    Mixed in with news about a technical partnership between Jaguar and the Bloodhound SSC World Land Speed Record program, the British brand announced this morning that it will show the first AWD F-Type Coupe at the 2014 LA show later this month.

    Jaguar tells us that the sure-footed cat, in AWD F-Type R Coupe form, will run from 0-60 miles per hour (0-96 km/h) in just 3.9 seconds, with a limited top speed of 186 mph (300 km/h).

    We're told that emphasis was placed on maintaining the car's "engaging rear-drive character," while offering, "blisteringly fast performance" in all weather conditions. While that last bit seems to indicate that the AWD system will be a coupe-first proposition, the press release goes on to mention that the F-Type range will grow from six current variations to 14, in 2015. By our math, that means that some AWD convertibles must be in the cards.
  2. if they make a 4 seater version this will be serious competition for the Ferrari FF.
  3. New F-Type is my favorite Jag in a really really long time.
