JAGUAR's F-TYPE coupe will cost less (up to €12,000 for some versions) than the roadster when it gets here next spring, I am reliably told.

It is the car everyone is talking about since its debut at the Los Angeles Motor Show last week.

Now I have confirmed the coupe will cost 8pc less than the roadster.

That translates into an €8,640 reduction, for example, on the V6 entry level version, €10,000 for the V6 'S' and €12,000 for the 5-litre V8 'S'.

The coupe also has a stiffer bodyshell and a wider spread of electronics.

The supercharged V8 model also gets more power.

And even more performance derivatives are in the pipeline, it has emerged.
