Jaguar F‑TYPE testdrive over the Easter holidays:
we’ve managed to get the latest covertible for a four day testdrive through the Easter weekend from a local Jaguar dealer.
Weather: sunny / 18 degrees
Destination: Lago di Garda
The F-Type uses an all-aluminium chassis, assembled with flush rivets and glue. Sound and vibration insulation is provided by the addition of a special underbody tray and engine mounts, and a double bulkhead between the engine bay and passenger compartment. The convertible roof is an electrically operated retractable fabric hood. Jaguar says by eschewing metal it can keep the car’s centre of gravity low, while a Thinsulate layer means thermal and sound insulation is akin to a solid roof.
