Jaguar Land Rover unveiled its much-anticipated Defender off-roader last year, and the British brand has plenty more to show for 2020. Jaguar plans to showcase the redesigned 2021 version of its F-Type sports car at the Chicago Auto Show this month.
Improving upon the previous F-Type — launched in 2013 and generally lauded for its sleek design and performance — seemed like a tough task, but Jaguar appears to have pulled it off. Judging by photos Jaguar released last week, the F-Type gets an edgier look and more aggressive features all around for 2021.
The revamped model also gets new tech and a simplified set of powertrain options. The top-level R trim benefits from a beefier, 575-horsepower V8 engine matching the outgoing F-Type SVR.
The 2021 F-Type is the latest in a long line of good-looking high-performance sports coupes built by the British manufacturer. Here’s a look at the new F-Type, and some of the legendary Jags that came before it.
