At a recent Jaguar Land Rover event I spotted it above. There it was, in real life – one of my favourite cars is now available in manual.
Available on the 2016 model year F-TYPE and F-TYPE S, the 3.0 L V6 Supercharged engine can be paired to a 6-speed manual transmission.
Been waiting for this moment since its debut at last year’s LA Auto Show.

Of course the car’s computer can shift better than me, that’s not the point.

Keep your fingers crossed the snow holds off, because I’m on the schedule to get this car in 2 weeks.
Listen for superfluous revving, that’ll be me.
