Buyer's notes

Target Price team says:

Despite the choice of name – and the classic front-engined, rear-wheel-drive layout – the F-type is a thoroughly modern car with a stiff and lightweight aluminium body.

We wouldn’t bother with the entry-level V6 version, because it’s the worst F-type to drive and looks overpriced compared with rivals with similar performance. However, the two more powerful models are definitely worth considering.

Jaguar is developing a manual gearbox for the F-type, but the only transmission available at the moment is an eight-speed automatic.
