Here's the first look at the production Jaguar F-Type Coupe. It will receive its world premiere on 19th November at the Los Angeles auto show. The automaker is also set to display it at the Tokyo Motor Show on November 20.

“We’ve been overwhelmed by the positive reaction to F-TYPE Convertible, but for me the purity of creating a sports Coupé is a uniquely satisfying process – and I know that both visually and dynamically, F-TYPE Coupé raises the bar yet again.”
