Jaguar F-Type

The Jaguar F-Type is billed as the spiritual successor to the iconic E-Type. Whether it lives up to this is yet to be seen but it certainly looks and sounds right. In true Jaguar style, it aims to deliver handsome looks, massive power and high luxury at a competitive price. Jaguar aims to take on the Porsche 911 with the F-Type.

In standard form, the Jaguar F-Type comes with a supercharged V6 engine that gives plenty of power and is likely to be the strongest selling car in the range. On its own the entry level car is very appealing but next to the S versions extra features it might disappoint. Either way this iconic sports car will continue to be attractive, entertaining and hold much of its value for a long time to come.

Jaguar F-Type S

The Jaguar F-Type S is tuned to provide an extra boost in power over the standard car. It also has a limited-slip differential for improved handling and 19 inch alloy wheels. The differences make for a more dynamic car that many agree is the most agile in the range but if you are looking for something special then it has to be the V8. Thanks to its more restrained fuel economy and a friendlier price tag the S is likely to be the more popular car with customers.

Jaguar F-Type V8 S

It is easy to see why the Jaguar F-Type V8 S sits at the top of the range. The vocal and muscular engine is full of character and sets it apart from the V6 alternatives. The quad tail-pipes also help to visually set it apart while the performance figures speak for themselves. The engine adds weight to the front end which does blunt the handling a little but it remains a thrilling powerhouse of a sportscar.
