The F-Type perfectly blends style with performance and clearly shows linage to the iconic E-Type. Its shape is instantly recognisable. Its feline-like headlights and long bonnet encompass Jaguar’s signature design language, while the rear rounds things off in a neat and tidy package and features a deployable rear spoiler and twin exhausts.
