A spiritual successor to the Jaguar E-type, Jaguar F-Type Convertible was revealed at the Paris Motor Show in 2012. Built on the latest generation of Jaguar’s all-aluminium platform architecture, Jaguar E-type comes with a choice of supercharged V6 and V8 engines, and rear-wheel-drive or all-wheel-drive transmissions.

Launched with ZF eight-speed automatic as the only gearbox option, in 2015 a six-speed manual box was introduced on six-cylinder versions.

All F-Types allow the driver to select Dynamic Mode, which sharpens throttle response, increases steering weight and changes the shift pattern of the smooth eight-speed automatic transmission.
