It has been prominent in the headlines this year and with little wonder too. For 2015, this is heralded as one of the most important cars of the year. It has a friendly fuel consumption rating of 75 MPG. For a nifty car, you can’t moan at that. What’s more, it has a jam-packed infotainment centre. This is the icing on the cake for many. With a rear wheel drive feature too, no wonder it’s been one to watch this year. The F-type is going to pale in comparison. What’s more, it’s affordable too. At over £25,000 for the entry level model, it’s not entirely up there with the Audi R8 or the Lagonda. It’s an affordable car that looks fantastic. No wonder it’s been hot off the press this year.
