The next stages of the Tour de France are soon to begin and teams are gearing up to compete for victory. Checking and double checking all of the equipment is essential, spare bikes are a must incase of mishaps. These bikes must be transported in tandem with the riders and for this Team Sky use a Jaguar XF Sportbrake. A practical decision, however, these up and coming sprint stages not only require fewer bikes to be transported at once, but also for it to be done quickly. Jaguar F-Type Tour de France.
Specially for these sprint stages, Jaguar has produced a one-off Jaguar F-Type Tour de France. Based upon the Jaguar F-Type R Coupe, this 542BHP 5.0 litre supercharged beauty dons the Team Sky livery and matching black and blue interior. As well as being modified to carry two racing bikes, the car receives all of the teams communications equipment which has to be powered by a separate battery in the boot. The V8 is untouched meaning 0-62MPH takes just 4 seconds and the top speed is 186MPH.
Jaguar has no intentions of putting the Jaguar F-Type Tour de France into production.
