Subtle tweaks both inside and out make the feline even more appealing.

The 2018 model year brings a bevy of updates for the F-Type, beginning on the outside with some discreet changes for the front bumper, although you’ll have to be a diehard Jaguar fan with a magnifying glass to spot the tweaks. A more important novelty would have to be the full-LED headlights lending the big cat with a more high-tech appearance.

That’s about it in terms of changes on the outside, unless you’re taking into account that hood-mounted GoPro. It’s there in some of the images to emphasize the collaboration between Jaguar and the well-known action camera manufacturer. 2018MY F-Type owners will be able to download an app called “ReRun,” which as you might have guessed already will show real-time footage via the GoPro camera mounted on the car. It will be possible by hooking up your smartphone wirelessly to the camera and also linking it to the car’s new Touch Pro infotainment system through a USB port before beginning to record.

You’ll be able to tell it apart from the other F-Types by the yellow and dark satin grey “400 Sport” badges and the Yulong White, Santorini Black, or Indus Silver body paint. More “400 Sport” branding is noticeable on the inside where there is yellow contrast stitching to spice things up.
