LONDON – Sept 19, 2013: The Jaguar F-TYPE has been voted the winner of the Autonis design award by the respected German motoring magazine, Auto Motor und Sport, following a poll of its readers.

The F-TYPE, which has been available in Germany since May of this year, was judged in the convertible segment – one of eight categories – taking top-spot with an outstanding 32 per cent of almost 18,000 reader votes.

Jaguar Director of Design, Ian Callum, and Peter Modelhart, CEO of Jaguar Land Rover Germany, accepted the prize at an awards ceremony at Hohenheim Castle yesterday evening.

Speaking from the ceremony, Ian Callum said: "Creating the F-TYPE has given both my team and I great satisfaction. Working on a sports car that holds true to Jaguar’s design values – beauty of line and purity of form – has been a great privilege, and I'm honoured the readers of Auto Motor und Sport have recognised our work with this award.”
