THE Aus­tralian In­ter­na­tional Mo­tor Show kicked off yes­ter­day with the spec­tre of a Big Cat loom­ing large over the event.

Jaguar will re­veal its all­new sports car, the F-TYPE, at the show.

In its sec­ond un­veil­ing to the world, but first in the South­ern Hemi­sphere, the F-TYPE’s un­veil­ing at the Aus­tralian In­ter­na­tional Mo­tor Show will aid in mark­ing Jaguar’s re­turn to the sports car mar­ket.

So far, teaser im­ages are all that have been re­leased of this alu­minium twoseater sports car.

The car has not been pub­licly dis­played since its first re­veal at the Paris Mo­tor Show last month.

The F-TYPE will be ini­tially launched as a con­vert­ible with a choice of three petrol en­gines: 340PS and 380PS ver­sions of Jaguar’s all-new 3.0-litre su­per­charged V6 and a new de­riv­a­tive of its ex­ist­ing su­per­charged 5.0-litre V8.

The 2012 Aus­tralian In­ter­na­tional Mo­tor Show is be­ing held at the Sydney Con­ven­tion and Ex­hi­bi­tion Cen­tre at Dar­ling Har­bour and runs through un­til to­mor­row week.
