Buying

What should I be paying?

No question, the P300 is the one to have if running costs are an issue. The P450 may be the range sweet spot and a surprising bargain at just under £70,000 – only a Mustang, Lexus RC F or Mercedes C63 gets you in a V8 sports car for less – but its mpg and CO2 figures are negligibly better than the full-strength F-Type R’s, on paper at least. But hey, you’re buying a sports car. Live a little. Prioritise such sensibleness only as much as you need to.

Again, the relative lightness of this update brings issues. The F-Type has always had infamously bad boot space – in convertible trim, chiefly – and a new set of lights, wheels and grilles can’t change that. So poke around one properly before buying, because it won’t swallow bags and cases with quite the aplomb of an equivalent Porsche.

Oh, and while there’s a modicum of active safety equipment on offer, it’s an area the F lags behind its rivals. There’s no active cruise control. You can’t even have a head-up display. Not big issues if you relish its old-school appeal, but it does distance the Jag just a little further from its rivals as those technologies progress so quickly elsewhere in the market.
