Jaguar Support Stage 20 of Tour de France

Jaguar Support Stage 20 of Tour de France

Jaguar’s Special Vehicle Operations division have created an exclusive Jaguar F-Type Coupé which will act as a support vehicle for the 2014 Tour de France Team Sky. The model is powered by a standard supercharged 5.0-litre V8 engine, producing 542bhp and 650Nm, thus providing excellent support for the team during stage 20 of the tour. This concept is not destined for production and will remain a one-off model. The Special Vehicle Operations division has made alterations to the F-Type, including a carbon fibre bike rack to replace the rear windscreen, which allows two race bikes to be stored. Other modifications include a separate electric supply to power microphones, radio systems, warning horns and display screens. The exterior has a racing stripe in the team’s light blue colours, as well as the Team Sky logos branded on the car. Inside, the colour scheme continues with the seats and centre trim replicating that of the racing stripe on the outside.
