There is something faintly disappointing about the interior of the F-Type. It’s not a particular fault of any kind but simply that the interior doesn’t quite live up to the promise of the exterior.
I’ve already stated my claim for the Coupe being far more appealing than the Convertible. In my mind, the beauty of the hard-top does not continue inside the cabin.
And sitting in the driver’s seat now, I can’t actually tell you why! Everything is ergonomically perfect and well-positioned – even the pop up air vents on top of the dash are cool in more ways than one.
There is just a lack of quality feel to the finish. Too much hard plastic, ‘hard’ leather. The F-Type isn’t a tactile car somehow. It doesn’t cosset the driver and welcome you in…
