At standstill, it looks as if it's ready leap out of the block like a seasoned sprinter. Start the engine, and it is pure aural delight. And then you drive it. Jaguar's F-Type reeks of raw power, from its looks to its sound to the way it drives
You see the mouth wide open, its evil fangs bared as it lunges ahead. The beast has its sights set firmly on you. The tingle in your spine intensifies and the hairs on your nape stand to attention. There is no way you can outrun this animal. As it steadily closes in, you know that this is one beast that can gobble, chew and spit you out in the blink of an eye. All you can do is dodge it and move out of its path. All too soon, it is almost upon you. Time slows down as your eyes widen, your ears wide awake to that wild growl. You veer off its path at the last moment, and it passes you by in a flash. You've just had your tryst with the animal called the Jaguar.

But the Jaguar we were referring to – the F-Type Convertible – is no less a beast than the big cat it takes its name from.
