Jaguar to be built in Birmingham

05 Apr 2012 at 10:33

The newest Jaguar sports car will be built in Birmingham, it has been announced.

The F-type two-seater convertible will be built at Jaguar Land Rover's Castle Bromwich plant.

The design will be unveiled later this year, the carmaker said at a press conference in New York.

Prototypes of the new luxury car are leaving the English plant as the company begins on-road testing.

Ian Hoban, Jaguar 's Vehicle Line Director said: "The engineering development of the F-type has focused on delivering a heightened level of dynamic driving reward.

"We are excited about our progress to date and are looking forward to soon being able to demonstrate what we have achieved."

The car will go on sale in 2013.
