The hottest Jaguar, F-Type, gets manual stick and All Wheel Drive variants in 2016 model.

2016 Jaguar F-Type is unveiled at 2014 Los Angeles Auto Show with all-new six-speed ZF manual transmission, which makes the super sports car even more drool worthy. Manual shifting will be done in new close-ratio gearbox which saves 10 kg over the auto; with short throws of 45 mm. Although Jaguar could have added rev-matching functionality, the British marque chose not to, to allow enthusiasts gain full control of the beast.

Further, Jaguar has also announced new All-Wheel Drive configuration for the F-Type, but it will not feature manual gearbox. The AWD system will have default torque split of 100 percent to rear axle (to retain the feel of older F-Type), and when demanded, front axle will get up to 50 percent. AWD will be on offer with V6S and V8R variants.

New Jaguar F-Type AWD version will be seen standing 5 mm higher from ground than other models. It gets restyled hood, new air vents and body-coloured side sills, for further differentiation. But, the downside is that AWD kit is significantly heavy, it adds around 80 kg in kerb weight. While AWD is optional on S models, all Jaguar F-Type R variants will equip the same as standard feature.
