Then perhaps the F-Type R will be more your speed. Packing 575 ponies, its deploys an all-wheel-drive system to find itself at 60 mph (96 km/h) in just 3.5 seconds before running headlong into an electronic speed limiter which arrests the fun just shy of 300 km/h. The driver will probably get arrested long before that number, however.Both cars come with a Quiet Start feature, a bit of programming that prevents your neighbours from tut-tutting into their tea every time you fire up the supercharged V8 on a cold morning. Bond-villain good looks and a brand that’s impossible to say without grinning are also standard equipment.

The model’s smaller engines are being dropped.New to its lineup is the F-Type P450, which will be available in either rear- or all-wheel-drive. It’ll be powered by a 444-horsepower supercharged V8 that should sling the car to highway speeds from a standstill in about 4.5 seconds. Also on tap is 428 lb-ft of torque, all of which shows up for duty at just 2,500 rpm.Adding to the party are standard Configurable Dynamics, 20-inch wheels, and brakes that are larger than last year (380 mm front, 376 mm rear). Popping for all-wheel-drive on the P450 also brings the likes of gloss black trim on its aero addenda, plus unique split-spoke wheels and R-Dynamic badging.
