Default Italian Racing Red F Type R

Hi Guys, I picked up the F Type R last Sunday, weather was good today so thought I would give it a good clean. First opportunity to see the condition of the car. Overall I am happy, very few scrapes or chips. Side sills have a usual road rash, maybe more than I expected with only 11k miles on the clock. Here are a few pics

Looks like F Type has a high demand as a used car! Lots of new members getting in at good prices!

Congrats on you new F Type. I have an Ultimate Black R, but I think the IRR is the color that looks best on the car. Enjoy your new beauty.

Thanks everyone! I got good savings over brand new, it is approved used so has 2 year warranty and the other usual benefits like full dealer service history. The car is a 2015 model. From the moment I sat in it I felt comfortable and bonded straight away. I traded in a 2014 Alfa Romeo 4C, which I loved but it was too much of a toy and not really good at being a car.

Looking forward to Jaguar ownership and hopefully won’t need too much advice!

Congrats with a great looking car!
Mine looks very similar, and even after three (more or less problem free) years of ownership, I love it everytime I take it out for a drive.
Have fun and treat that rwd R with some respect till you get to know it well 😉
