The Jaguar F-Type is easily one of the most widely-loved designs of the modern era. This year, SA received the facelifted version and we got to spend some time behind the wheel of the V8.
The designers at Jaguar must have had sleepless nights trying to figure just how they were going to improve upon one of the best car designs of the modern era.
The answer was, thankfully, to not do terribly much at all. The new F-Type is instantly recognisable as a modern Jaguar, and, if anything, it's sleeker and prettier than ever.
Under the bonnet of this R Coupe is the familiar 5.0-litre supercharged V8, now tuned to produce 423 kW, the same as the previous SVR and now also features AWD as standard.
In this video, our video guy Ciro De Siena takes the new generation F-Type on some of Cape Town's most beautiful roads in a bid not to enjoy himself too much.
