The Jaguar F-Type blends classic good looks and effortless performance

This week’s dream car is dripping with desirability.

IF I HAD the money I’d buy…

A car that blends classic style with effortless performance and has an instantly recognisable shape. A car with precise agile handling that is also comfortable and refined. A desirable modern sports car with buckets of kerb appeal. I’d buy a Jaguar F-Type Coupe.

Why a Jaguar F-Type?

The Jaguar F-Type is one of the most elegant modern sports cars on sale today. It has gorgeous lines and is really eye catching. It also handles beautifully too and under that seductively long bonnet is a 350hp V6 engine that makes this Big Cat roar.

What’s special about this particular one?

This particular model comes in R-Dynamic trim and features 19-inch alloy wheels, a deployable boot lid spoiler and LED headlights with signature Daytime Running Lights. It has a switchable Active Sports Exhaust and a gloss black Design Pack.

The interior features sport seats that are covered in ebony suedecloth and leather and there is a Delta Aluminium centre console with eight-inch touchscreen infotainment system.

What does it look like in action?

It looks very fast and furious and a lot of fun to drive.

Who else drives one?

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho has a custom-built F-Type. Duran Duran’s John Taylor has one that he has named ‘Foxy’ and supermodel Jodie Kidd calls her red F-Type ‘Ole Girl’.

It costs €97,995. What else could you get for the money?

Got your heart set on a fast slinky number? For €93,346 you could drive away in this 2017 Porsche Boxster 718 Turbo.

… or if you need something a bit more practical, for €98,647 you can have this 2017 Mercedes-Benz GLE.
