Last time we talked F-Type, it would have been about the four-wheel-drive, 570bhp SVR version.
We would have been pretending to be excited about it. You know, as if we had met at a work social event and were trying to come across as top lads. In fact, we find this kind of thing is more interesting: a new entry-level F-Type with a lightweight four-cylinder, two-litre turbocharged engine.
It still has 300bhp, it’ll still be rapid and tuneful, but it’ll also get close to 40mpg and 163g/km emissions. That’s purposeful engineering, we reckon. (But, if you ask us about it at a wedding, we’ll tell you it’s ‘a total joke’.)
