Jaguar’s slinky new F-Type convertible: Sex on wheels?


For modern-day Romeos and Juliets: Jaguar’s slinky new F-Type convertible, a $69,000 aphrodisiac

Couples therapy just got a pick-me-up. Jaguar’s seductive new F-TYPE convertible is the eagerly awaited successor to the British automaker’s classic E-Type roadster of the ’60s and ’70s. (Talk about pressure: An example of that curvaceous car is in the permanent design collection of the Museum of Modern Art in New York.) The new incarnation is thoroughly modern with its plethora of gadgetry and LEDs, and a choice of three supercharged engines that can rev you and yours all the way up to 495 horsepower in the V8 model. Talk about skin-deep: This is a long-nosed beauty with muscular lines and a proper soft top — lined in Thinsulate — that bucks the recent trend toward folding-hardtop sports cars. (We like our convertibles to look like convertibles.) Did we mention that gorgeous tush? The people following you will. The F-Type debuts this summer as a 2014 model; prices begin at $69,000 and purr into the low six figures. But what price romance? Park Place Jaguar, 5300 Lemmon Ave., Dallas, 1-888-869-7816,
