CAR's artists have stripped away the disguise of the official 'spyshots' issued by Jaguar upon confirmation that the F-type project had been approved. The top three photos above give us a good stab at what the production F-type will look like.

Jag will launch the F-type first as a soft-top roadster in spring 2013, as depicted in our artist's impressions above. A coupe will follow, most likely a year later in 2014. Expect prices to start at around £55,000, placing it slap bang between Porsche's Cayman/Boxster duo and the 911.

Tell us which engines are in the 2013 Jaguar F-type

Amidst all the hoopla at the 2012 Beijing motor show, Jaguar announced a range of engines for the new 2013 F-type:

• 3.0 V6 supercharged, 335bhp and 332lb ft @ 1800rpm
• 3.0 V6 supercharged, 375bhp and 339lb ft @ 1800rpm
• 5.0 V8, in either 503bhp or 543bhp forms (as yet undecided)

No performance or economy figures have yet been announced. But judging by the compact dimensions of the F-type and its all-aluminium construction, it's going to be pretty rapid. The same, lower-powered V6 in the heavier XF will deliver 0-62mph in 5.7sec - so even the cheapest F-type will have proper performance credentials.

As you can see from our renderings, the new F-type will closely mimic the Jaguar C-X16 concept car from 2011.

More on Jaguar's new V6 engine family

The new quad-cam 3.0-litre V6 petrol engine is derived from Jag's existing 5.0-litre V8 family and shares the direct fuel injection, variable valve timing and aluminium construction of the eight. It also includes stop-start and drives through an eight-speed ZF automatic. That's key to the future option to add the hybrid module for a petrol-electric F-type.

The exact capacity of the F-type's new V6 is 2995cc. At launch, both V6s will be supercharged, the Roots-type twin-vortex supercharger nestling in the vee of the engine block to ram air into the engine.

Jag also highlights a new system of counter-balancing weights used to match the smoothness of its bigger V8 brother.

The new May 2012 issue of CAR Magazine is out now - and this month our cover story is all about the gorgeous new Jaguar F-type. CAR's Tim Pollard was granted exclusive access to the first F-type prototypes, the C-X16 concept car and the people who are in charge of making this £55,000 sports car a reality.
