To our eyes there cannot be many better looking cars in the world right now. The F-Type, while much larger than the E and nudging into GT territory, takes the iconic shape of its predecessor and updates it for the 21st century. The exterior is everything a sportscar should be, motor up front, powering the rear wheels (the way God intended), a long sleek bonnet into a two-seater cabin surrounded by muscular haunches. The R gains more flared nostrils, to accommodate the need for more oxygen into the larger motor, a more aggressive splitter, and disposes of the central double tailpipes of the standard F-Type, replacing them with a pair of twin exhausts. Inside the F-Type remains, even three years after launch, a beautiful place to be. Completely focused on the driver, to the point of putting a bar across the centre console on the passenger side, the materials are top-notch and the infotainment system easy to use. Our car came with the ‘extended leather pack’, swathing almost the entire cabin in cow-hide. We’d stick with the standard.
