Introduction

Let’s a do a little revisiting shall we? We absolutely LOVED the Jaguar F-type Roadster we drove back in January this year. And we have a few reasons to justify that. For one, it’s the most gorgeous automobile we’ve seen this year (ok, it’s second now that we’ve seen the Coupe). Not just gorgeous, it’s nudie mag seductive to the point that we feel a little stirring in our loins every time we look at it.

That and the fact that it is the loudest car out of the box from the factory without the supercar price tag. It’s a sweet marriage of good looks and orgasmic heavenly tunes. What more could you ask for? Of course, having Kate Upton in the left passenger seat wouldn’t hurt either. Just saying.

So it’s the perfect sports coupe then?

Ok, so it isn’t quite as planted as we’d like and the rear seems more interested in breaking out than staying true. But we gather Jaguar tuned it more for hooning than lap times. But now with the new Coupe, Jaguar seems to have sorted that tail out.

For now at least, it seems the F-type is the closest we’ll get to supercardom with the brand. Of course tears have been shed with the news of the C-X75 going into cryostasis but the F-type is proof that the brand hasn’t completely slacked off on the performance front.

The entire experience from registering my car on OneShift to the handing over to the dealer was very pleasant. The process at OneShift was efficient and transparent. Special thanks to RenAi from OneShift who was very detailed and helpful.

Good response and support from Angie at One Shift when I wanted to sell off my old Camry which was due to be scrapped in early February. Would recommend this platform for those wanting to buy or sell their cars.
