Still new

However, they didn't dwell on it too much.

Exhausting

The V6 F-Types come with two centrally mounted exhausts, whereas the V8 comes with four (two on either side).

Build quality

Jaguar's used aluminium extensively in the F-Type's construction.

Svelte

The door handles are hidden in the doors; not only do they look awesome, but they aid aerodynamics.

Nice sound

As well as looking good, all variants of the F-Type sound utterly brilliant.

Sporty look

The cockpit is all about the driver. Passengers get grab handles...y'know, because sports car.
