What Car? says...
Although it may have a stable full of sensible saloons and SUVs these days, the Jaguar F-Type Convertible proves that its maker hasn’t forgotten its heritage. Harking back to sports cars such as the achingly beautiful E-Type of the 1960s – which itself was available as a solid-roofed coupé or a drop-top roadster – it’s a strict two-seater that places its emphasis on performance, style and sound.
With the roof down in the F-Type Convertible your ears are that much more exposed to the thunderously brutish exhaust note emitted from the supercharged 5.0-litre V8 versions of this car, delivering drop-top thrills that very few cars can hope to challenge. It’s not all about V8s though, there’s a four-cylinder 2.0-litre version of the F-Type convertible, and this has proven the most popular of the two engines offered.
