​Full-size F-Type Coupé mounted on Jaguar factory wall

Jaguar has mounted a full-sized Jaguar F-Type Coupé on the wall of its Castle Bromwich factory in the West Midlands.

The car forms part of an artwork created by PopBangColour, aka radio-controlled car artist Ian Cook.
Jaguar says the artwork celebrates what it calls "the most dynamically capable, performance-focused production Jaguar ever."

It replaces an artwork featuring the Jaguar XKR-S, which had previously in place for around three years.

The new F-Type Coupé will be manufactured at the Castle Bromwich plant alongside Jaguar's existing model ranges.

Speaking exclusively to AOL Cars, Cook said: "Jaguar's previous sculpture looked great but worked best at night, when it was all lit up.

"I wanted to make this one colourful, so that looks great during the day too.

"The F-Type Coupé is such a beautiful car anyway, it's such a lovely bit of design, that it was great to work with.

"It's about saying 'we are British' – the F-Type's designed here, built here, and shipped from here across the world.

Cook added that the Jaguar artwork represented something of a milestone for him.

"As a Brummie, it's a great thing to be part of. It's the busiest roundabout in Birmingham, and a very important intersection in the West Midlands," he said.

"Seeing your work on that building is very cool. It's the next stage I wanted to go to. I've always wanted to go bigger, brighter and louder.

"My artworks are normally 2.5 metres wide, so to go from that to an artwork that's permanently on the side of a building, publicly visible for such a long time, is fantastic."
