You can now feast your eyes on what must be one of the most gorgeous jags of recent history.

Following last week's leak of some hazy shots showing the front end, the leaky worldwide web has now given us the full monty with a new gallery of official pictures that have hit the web ahead of the car's Paris motor show debut this Thursday.

All we're left to do for now have a good stare we wait for Jaguar to let its new cat's technical details out the bag.

One thing Jaguar has already elaborated on, however, is the advanced new supercharged V6 that will power the F-Type.

The direct injection three-litre mill will reportedly be available in two states of tune - with the tamer one pushing 250kW/450Nm and the flagship producing 280kW and 460Nm.

Both versions will be mated to a new ZF eight-speed automatic gearbox.

While the open-top roadster version you see here is expected to be first off the mark, Jaguar will also launch a coupe body style that will closely resemble the C-X16 concept car.
