The official U.K. launch of the new Jaguar F-TYPE Coupé took place at Eastwinter Garden in Canary Wharf, London. At the event hosted by Jaguar Land Rover Managing Director Jeremy Hicks, an audience including prospective customers, Jaguar brand ambassadors and British media saw the stunning new sports car from Jaguar presented by Design Director Ian Callum.
Highlight of the evening was the appearance of new Jaguar ambassador José Mourinho. José will be the first customer in the U.K. to receive a new F-TYPE Coupé when deliveries begin late in March this year.
Jaguar Land Rover U.K. Managing Director Jeremy Hicks said: “I am really excited to be officially presenting the new F-TYPE Coupé in the U.K. for the first time. This sports car is as important to the Jaguar brand as it is spectacular to drive.

The advert is the latest offering in Jaguar’s ‘British Villains’ campaign which began with the introduction of the F-TYPE Coupé in November 2013, and made its world premiere during the coveted advertising slot in the Super Bowl XLVIII North America broadcast interval. Having now received more than 11 million views online, the advertisement will hit television screens in the U.K. for the first time in April.
