The F-Type has put Jaguar firmly back into the limelight, and demand for the elegant open-top two-seater is so strong, there’s currently a six-month waiting list.
While that means you won’t find a used example for anything below list price at the moment, our experts predict that supply will eventually meet demand, and residuals will be affected accordingly.
The new Jaguar is still a great place to put your money, though. Whether you go for the entry-level V6 or the top-spec V8S, the F-Type will retain more than half of its value after three years. But the best of the bunch is the mid-range V6S, with a predicted residual value of 52.1 per cent. It helps that this is the best model in the range, as far as we’re concerned.
It has plenty of power, while the lighter supercharged V6 under the bonnet means the car’s handling balance is that bit sweeter than the supercharged V8’s. You also get the Active Sports Exhaust as standard, so the V6S sounds like an E-Type when you take it over 3,000rpm. That alone is almost worth the £67,000-plus asking price.
