What about personalisation? 

For those wanting to customise their F-Type to their personal style, Jaguar offers tons of options to meet those needs.

We’ll start with a brief glance at its paint options. Things kick off with the solid and metallic paint palette, which provides a number of colours — largely a mix of whites and darker shades, though some bolder highlights include Caldera Red and Ultra Blue are also available. If that’s not enough, there’s also the premium metallic selection — consisting of Carpathian Grey and Silicon Silver.  Those wanting to splash the cash can delve even deeper into the SVO premium palette and Special Effect colours.

It’s a comprehensive selection inside too, with a multitude of interior combinations available. Suede and leather upholstery are on offer, while colours such as black, red, cream and white are on offer. There’s also a number of carbon-fibre and aluminium trim insert packages for a little extra customisation.
