The Jaguar F-TYPE Team Sky is easily the most awesome support car in the history of the Tour de France. This special F-TYPE Coupe is actually designed to support Britain's Team Sky during the time trials of stage 20, not just for promotional purposes. As such, it's a bit different than a normal F-TYPE.

For starters, there is no rear window. Instead, there is a rack for holding bicycles. There is also a special battery in the trunk that will power the electrical gear (televisions, radios, horns, etc...) needed to communicate with and assist the riders. Other than that, the Jaguar F-TYPE Team Sky is just a normal luxury sports car. It still sports a V8 engine kicking out 550 horsepower, which should be good enough to catch even the fastest sprinter.
