SKY’s F-TYPE R Coupe

SKY’s F-TYPE R Coupe

Jaguar Special Vehicle Operations has turned an F-TYPE R Coupe into a high-performance support vehicle for the Sky Pro Cycling Team during Stage 20 of the Tour de France. This time trial sees riders race from Bergerac to Périgueux.

Jaguar does not plan to produce any other versions of this unique F-TYPE Coupe – engineers working in the new Jaguar Land Rover Special Vehicle Operations team were briefed to develop just one vehicle for Team Sky.

Bespoke features include a new racking solution, which carries two of the team’s Pinarello Bolide TT bikes. The vehicle exterior is finished in Team Sky’s famous black and blue livery, while the team’s other graphic design features are present inside the car. Further specifications include a separate electric supply in the boot that provides power to the radios, amplifiers, microphones, horns and televisions that support communications between Team Sky’s sports director and the rider.

JLR’s global brand experience director, Mark Cameron, said, “Jaguar has supplied high-performance support vehicles to Team Sky since its first season in 2010. The development of this F-TYPE Coupe is the latest example of our shared belief to push the boundaries and provide technologically innovative solutions, both on and off the bike. The visual impact of the F-TYPE Coupe during Stage 20 will also, of course, bring added attention to Team Sky and our unique partnership.”
