Sisma Auto earlier today unveiled the Jaguar F-Type in a press preview at its Showcase Jaguar Showroom in Pavilion, but it isn’t quite a full debut here for the front-engined, rear-wheel drive two-seater – the particular example will be staying only until the weekend before heading on to its eventual destination, Australia.

While the red F-Type S is very much a brief exhibit, it isn’t just for prospective buyers – the display is open to the public. The car will be on show until March 17.

At the preview, Sisma mentioned that the first Malaysian deliveries are expected in the second half of the year, and it also released an indicative pricing for the three models that make up the F-Type range, which made its debut in Paris last September.

Tentative pricing for the baseline F-Type is RM888,888, while the F-Type S is expected to go for RM988,888. Both models are powered by a 3.0 litre supercharged V6 with different states of tune, the F-Type having 340 PS at 6,500 rpm and 450 Nm between 3,500 rpm to 5,000 rpm while the F-Type S raises the game to 380 PS and 460 Nm, at the same rpm levels.

Meanwhile, the top-of-the-range model, the F-Type V8 S, is listed at an indicative RM1,098,888. The variant wears a 5.0 litre supercharged V8 producing 495 PS at 6,500 rpm and 625 Nm of torque from 2,500 rpm to 5,500 rpm.

So, if you’ve been itching to see what the F-Type looks like in the metal, you’ve got until Sunday to do so. It’s a stunner.
