The beautiful Jaguar C-X16 Concept presented last year at Frankfurt has become a real production model. What was initially a hybrid concept has became the successor for the legendary E-type model. Dubbed F-type, the new convertible is powered by a 3.0-Liter supercharged V6 engine developing 335 hp and available in a more powerful 375 Hp version. Even better, a supercharged 5.0-liter V8 engine will be available for the small convertible! This could make a serious competitor for the Mercedes-Benz SLK AMG. Of course, Jaguar is no stranger to putting a big engine in a small car as the original E-type its self had a less successful V12 version.

We couldn't be more excited to see the successor of the iconic Jaguar E-type next week at the Paris motor. In the meantime, enjoy the high pictures released by Jaguar in the gallery below.
