There’s no doubt the F-Type holds plenty of appeal. Performance ranges from quick to downright rapid and the V8 versions sound glorious. It’s reasonably comfortable for long distances, although you’ll have to pack light: there’s not a lot of stowage space and the boot isn’t particularly big. Rivals such as the Alpine A110, the Porsche 718 Cayman and Porsche 911 are more enjoyable to drive, so we’d take a look at one of those instead.

Available on P300 and P450 models, it has more aggressive styling on the outside, with black accents and bigger 19in wheels, a switchable exhaust and additional metal trim inside. Opt for the P450 and the wheels are 20in, and you get a limited-slip differential to boost traction, plus adaptive suspension. As it’s the only way to get the P450 engine, it’s the trim we’d go for.

The most popular F-Type engine is the least powerful in the range. Badged P300, it’s a turbocharged 2.0-litre four-cylinder that’s offered only with rear-wheel drive. It’s certainly quick, although there are a number of hot hatches that can out-accelerate it. It also sounds rather dreary, one of the big reasons for upgrading to the P450.
