(MAHWAH, NJ) – April 8, 2014 – Jaguar is proud to announce that the F-TYPE Convertible is an Automobile Magazine 2014 ‘All-Star’ for its part in redefining and modernizing the brand. This marks the third year a Jaguar vehicle has received the honor.
“The F-TYPE Convertible, Jaguar’s modern take on its iconic, 1960s E-Type, captivated us with its svelte body, its available supercharged V8 engine, and its exhaust note that sounds like machine-gun fire,” said Jean Jennings, President and Editor-In-Chief, Automobile Magazine. “Did we mention its looks? With its extravagant styling, the F-TYPE attracts the attention of people everywhere it goes and has done more than any other Jaguar car to make the brand relevant and desirable again.”
“This award further validates excitement surrounding the brand’s first two-seat sports car since the iconic E-Type,” said Jeff Curry, Brand Vice President, Jaguar North America. “We are thrilled to have such a top-tier recognition of the F-TYPE by Automobile Magazine. We are proud to have this recognition of our strategy to build more new Jaguar models that challenge the status quo in the luxury car market. This is an important moment for the Jaguar brand as the all-new F-TYPE Coupe and R models go on sale in May joining the F-TYPE convertible.”
For 2014, about 270 automobiles for sale in the United States were eligible for the award. The prestigious All-Stars awards recognize 10 vehicles chosen by the editorial staff of Automobile Magazine.
An official awards presentation will take place at the 2014 New York International Auto Show on Wednesday, April 16, 2014.
