    Looks approximately a million times better with the roof down

    No hardtop convertible though? Merc nailed that years ago.

    The coupé is out in 2014, that's the drivers car, faster, lighter and about £10k cheaper :)

    So with luck I'll pick up a second-hand one in 2018 :)

    Is it basically the baby Aston Martin but watered down a bit?

    Some would say that, but the designers at Jaguar are far more focused on the driving experience. Aston's tend to be noisy, straight line speed, fun cars. The F-Type is being pitted against the 911, so a good looking car that's great to drive to the track and then on the track.

    Tata bought Jaguar and Land Rover and have pumped money into them to build their reputations. I Jaguar's case you pay for the vehicle with zero premium for the name because they want more people to drive them and build that reputation. As the name gets the respect of the motoring public you'll see a shift towards greater luxury.

    You can see it with the F-Type, they're looking to get the price of the hard-top as low as £55k but with all the bells as whistles it'll be near £100k in much the same way as Porsche price the 911, the car they're aiming to compete with.

    It just looks a bit boring.

    It looks alright, but if I had 70K to spend on a car I don't think I'd be heading to the Jaguar garage.

    My boss is at the Paris Motor Show today and says that it looks a lot better 'in the tin' than it does in pictures.

    You should be thinking about one of these.

    It is an ok looking car and definitely sexy with the hood down, but I think considering the heritage and the name, it really should be an absolutely jaw-dropping iconic car. Something totally groundbreaking and defining.

    I'm a little disappointed. I know not everyone gets a boner for an E-type (i do) but even if it's not your thing, you have to appreciate its significance and distinctiveness.

    That's bullshit for starters.

    The Eagle Speedster has pretty much nailed the 21st century E-Type.

    It vaguely reminds me of some other car. Can't quite put my finger on it. Something non jaguar.

    The F-Type will start £58,500, which is more expensive than the Boxster and Cayman, and cheaper than the 911.

    The V8 S version is in 911 territory though - £79,950.

    Chances are, the top of the range version might snare a few potential 911 buyers, but I don't see the 911 as its main rival.

    Yeah, it's a ludicrous price, but I don't think it can really be bettered.

    I'd still take a Lambo Miura over one, but the E-Type is the classic to end all.

    To be fair, Audi is now the brand favoured by 99% of total cunts.
