The driver of a brand new Jaguar F-Type has recently lost his life in China after pushing the throttle too hard and losing control of the wheel.
A horrific scene happened just a day ago in Kunming, China, where the driver of a brand new Jaguar F-Type was tragically killed. According to the local automotive media, he lost control of his ride after pushing the throttle too hard and he hit two trees, a lamppost, a pedestrian and the rear end of a passing Volkswagen Lavida, after coming to a rest, where you see it in the images posted below. The original pictures posted on Chinese websites were very graphic so not all of them have been posted on here.
For those of you who don’t know what a Jaguar F-Type is we will tell you that it’s a brand new convertible sports car which has been offered for sale recently. The model in question is 4,470 mm long, 1,920 mm wide and 1,290 mm tall, with a 2,620 mm wheelbase and a total weight of 1,597 kg. Power is provided by either a 340 HP and 332 lb-ft of torque 3.0L V6, by a 3.0L V6 with 380 HP or a 5.0 liter V8 with 495 HP and 460 lb-ft of torque.
