Jaguar F-Type in full detail, Porsche Panamera shooting brake and new Bentley racer

On the eve of the Mondial de l'Automobile in Paris, some of the show's biggest releases have been revealed in full detail. Our eye was particularly caught by the highly anticipated Jaguar F-Type. Jaguar's two-seater sports car is both a feat of styling and engineering. The compact machine comes with a choice of a naturally aspirated or supercharged V6 and the range-topping supercharged V8, which is good for just under 500 bhp. In V8 S trim, the F-Type can sprint to 100 km/h in 4.3 seconds and has a limited top speed of 300 km/h.
Porsche's main star of the show will be this Panamera Sport Turismo, which effectively is a shooting brake version of the German manufacturer's four-door model. It is still shown as in concept car form but it seems very likely that Porsche will expand into this popular niche market. The Sport Turismo is powered by the same hybrid drivetrain also found in the Panamera Hybrid S.
Five-time Le Mans winner Bentley will return to sports car racing in 2013 with this Continental GT3. Like the Porsche, the new racer from Crewe is officially labelled a concept car but it will be used to develop the production racer that will join the ever growing GT3 ranks towards the end of next year. No technical specifications of the Continental GT3 have been released yet, other than that it will be rear-wheel drive.

I think the press photos for the Jag should've used a car in British Racing Green, that red is giving off too much of an Alfa Romeo illusion for me
