The all-wheel drive version also has a unique bonnet design with distinctive new vents and a deeper ‘power bulge’.

The firm is also replacing its V8 S Convertible model, which produced 495PS, with a new supercharged V8 in the F-Type R Convertible which is available in all wheel drive and rear wheel drive configurations. This engine will produce an impressive 550PS.

The Jaguar F-Type also features a new infotainment system which supports android and Apple smartphone connectivity, is intuitive to operate and enables the owner to have remote engine starts.
