Jaguar F-Type: Flaming V8

ag also lets you choose the kind of seats you’d like in the F-Type. No, I’m not talking about the type of leather or colour, which, of course, are available options – it also lets you select the shape of the seats. One option is Performance seats, which have a mechanism to hold you in place while you throw the Jag around.

At Rs 2.07 crore (on-road, Mumbai), the F-Type isn’t exactly a steal, even by sportscar standards. But it looks and sounds astounding. It may not be the best driving car around – which was also said of the E-Type that it replaces. But it’ll easily join the list of the great classics of the 21st century – much like the E-Type that it replaces.
