There are only two kinds of people in the world. Those who think of Jaguar as an old man’s car, and those who respect the British marque’s racing pedigree. Sure, the brand did come up with cars like the remarkably geriatric S-Type, but it’s the same automaker who gave petrol heads such as myself great sports cars to drool over, like the svelte XJ220 and the sexy E-Type.
Now the F-Type, in its various iterations, has been released in the GCC market. There are two questions that beg to be asked. First, is it a worthy successor to the E-Type? And more importantly, which side of the bipolar Jaguar brand do I classify the car in? I took out the F-Type V6 S for a spin to find out.
