First drive of Jaguar F-Type for fleets at CCIA

Fleet operators will be able to drive the Jaguar F-Type for the first time at the UK’s premier driving event, Company Car in Action (CCIA).

For many fleet operators, the manufacturer’s all-new, two-seater sports car’s appearance at the two-day event, which takes place at Millbrook Proving Ground, Bedfordshire, on June 11 and 12, will provide a first chance to put the F-Type through its paces.

The F-Type, set to arrive in dealerships at the end of April, will be available to drive in all three engine variants.

Set to attract up to 1,000 fleet decision-makers, the event will also offer drives in the latest versions of the XF, XF Sportsbrake, XJ and XK.

Winner of the 2013 World Car Design of the Year, the front-engined, rear-wheel drive convertible will undoubtedly prove to be a magnet at the fleet industry’s biggest event.

Designed with the spirit of Jaguar at its heart, F-Type is a driver’s car with stunning performance credentials delivered by Jaguar's new 3.0-litre V6 supercharged petrol engine in 340PS and 380PS outputs and its 5.0-litre V8 supercharged petrol producing 495PS.

Millbrook Proving Ground is the ideal location to experience F-Type’s capabilities - the V8S version reaches 60mph in 4.2 seconds and has a top speed of 186mph; the 380PS V6 F-Type S will reach 60mph in 4.8 seconds and 171mph; and the equivalent figures for the F-Type are 5.1 seconds and 161mph.

A professional driver will be on hand to provide a truly exhilarating F-Type drive whilst two vehicles will be available for regular test drives.

Jaguar has also chosen CCIA to make an announcement about its company car staple the XF.
