Representing a return to Jaguar's sports car roots, the new F-Type is a two-seater convertible with an aluminum structure. It is a light car with ideal weight distribution. The styling features LED taillights and tapered headlights. There are two character lines that Jaguar is calling bloodlines.

The S model is rated at 380 horsepower and 339 pound-feet of torque while the range topping supercharged 5.0-liter V8 S is rated at 495 horsepower and 460 pound-feet of torque.
