Alfardan Premier Motors Co., the exclusive importer of Jaguar in the State of Qatar, has unveiled Jaguar’s most dynamically capable, performance focused, production vehicle, the F-TYPE Coupé, in Doha.
Immediately recognisable, the vehicle was built on the design of the stunning C-X16 concept sports Coupé and the F-TYPE Convertible – winner of the 2013 World Car Design of the Year award. The model line-up is headlined by the F-TYPE R Coupé with its 550PS/680Nm 5.0-litre V8 supercharged engine enabling acceleration from 0-100km/h in 4.2-seconds (0-60mph in 4.1-seconds), and a top speed of 300km/h (186mph) (limited).
The Jaguar F-TYPE Coupé launch in Qatar follows a 28% jump in Jaguar sales recorded for Alfardan Premier Motors in the last fiscal year, reflecting the high demand for luxury, performance vehicles witnessed across the entire MENA region.
Unveiled to a selection of key Qatar media during a press conference, the launch continued with an exclusive evening event held in the St. Regis Doha Hotel and attended by some of Qatar’s most notable VIP guests in addition to loyal Jaguar customers and Alfardan Premier Motors management team. A Polaris White Jaguar F-TYPE R Coupé with a Red Leather Interior Pack was showcased at the event, giving guests a closer look at Jaguar’s range topping vehicle.
Speaking at the launch, General Manager for Alfardan Premier Motors, Rabih Ataya, said, “It gives us great pleasure to welcome our guests to the exciting launch of the new Jaguar F-TYPE Coupé in Qatar. We have witnessed unprecedented sales growth over the last fiscal year and this is reflected in the strong interest we have received around the F-TYPE Coupé since its reveal at the LA Auto Show. We are confident that this superbly engineered sports car will continue to receive an enthusiastic response from customers.”
Bruce Robertson, Managing Director for Jaguar Land Rover MENA, added, “Complimenting the award-winning Jaguar F-TYPE Convertible model line-up, the F-TYPE Coupé range is built to be engaging, precise, intuitive and alive and I am thrilled to be here to launch the latest addition to the Jaguar family in Qatar.”
With a starting price of QR 279,000, the Jaguar F-TYPE Coupé and Jaguar F-TYPE Coupé R will be available exclusively at Jaguar Showroom located at Alfardan Centre on Grand Hamad Street, with opening hours from 9:00 am to 9:00 pm, Saturday through Thursday.
