Just how sideways will the F-Type Coupe be?
The range-topping ‘V8S' F-Type cabrio, with its 488bhp 5.0-litre V8 driving the rear wheels, is one of the lairiest, slidiest things we've driven in years, a car to make even the Mercedes E63 AMG look understeery and easy-going.
But now the F-Type Coupe is on the way, and it's not only even better-looking than the cabrio... but more powerful too. The ‘V8R' coupe pumps out 542bhp, will do 0-62mph in four seconds flat and 186mph flat-out. And possibly sideways.
Can it possibly control all that power? Or will 2014's first autumn frost be marked by the sight of every F-Type V8R Coupe in Britain sticking out backwards from roadside ditches?
