Meet Jaguar’s Tour de France F-Type

One-off concept built to support Stage 20 of the TdF. S’charged 542bhp V8 also wants to help

Jaguar has built this special, one-off F-Type Coupe to support Team Sky for Stage 20 of this year's Tour de France.

It's based on the F-Type R Coupe, and as such comes with that lovely, supercharged 5.0-litre V8 producing 542bhp and 501lb ft of torque. 0-60mph? Four seconds dead, and it'll top out at 186mph. A bit quicker than Mr Froome, even when he was in one piece.

Bespoke additions to this F-Type include a new bike racking solution on the rear - which carries two of the team's Pinarello Bolide TT bikes - a separate electric supply in the boot powering the radios, amps, microphones, horns and television, and of course, that Team Sky livery.

Naturally, this is just a one-off and won't be offered up for full-scale production. Which is a pity, because as bike-racks go...
