LOS ANGELES (AP) - The F-Type convertible, which went on sale in the spring, was Jaguar's first two-seat sports car in 50 years. Now the company's adding a hardtop version.

Jaguar unveiled the 2015 F-Type coupe Tuesday evening ahead of the Los Angeles Auto Show. It goes on sale this spring.

The all-aluminum coupe starts at $65,000, or $4,000 less than the convertible. It has a 340-horsepower V6 engine. At the top end is the $99,000 F-Type R, which has a 550-horsepower V8 engine and goes from zero to 60 mph in four seconds.

All versions have an eight-speed transmission and a rear spoiler that automatically rises at 70 mph.

The F-Type and the recently redesigned XF sedan are winning new customers. Jaguar's U.S. sales are up 36 percent so far this year.
