The car, which has been created by JLR's new Special Vehicle Operations division, will support Team Sky riders in the penultimate stage of the race, which is run as an individual time trial event.
The support car is a fettled version of the F-type R coupé, with power coming from a stock 542bhp 5.0-litre supercharged V8 engine. It gains a roof rack with space to carry two spare bikes, and is finished in the familiar blue-on-blue Team Sky livery.
Another major modification is a separate electric supply in the boot that provides power to the radios, amplifiers, microphones, horns and televisions, which allows team officials in the car to communicate with Tour officials and race directors.
Usually, support cars are spacious estates, such as Team Sky’s own usual Jaguar XF Sportbrake, with large roof racks carrying spare bikes for all riders – up to nine – for the team.
