Jaguar recently unveiled a new variant of the F-Type, powered by a 2.0 litre Ingenium four-cylinder turbo petrol engine that develops 300 PS and 400 Nm of torque. If such a combination has you puzzled, don’t worry because the British carmaker has released this video to hopefully win you over.

At the beginning, we are introduced to Ian Hoban, who is the F-Type vehicle line director at the company’s manufacturing centre in the United Kingdom. He then shows us around the plant, while explaining some of the interesting details about the F-Type, including it being the lightest variant it has ever made.

However, in the background, the growl of the four-pot-powered F-Type can be heard clearly, so calling it a “tamed cat” which lacks the excitement of its V6 siblings isn’t exactly fair, wouldn’t you say? If you need a second hearing, jump back to the 52-second mark and plug in your headphones.

The new F-Type variant is available as both a coupe and a convertible, but the only transmission choice for the Ingenium mill is an eight-speed automatic. It is also comes with retuned spring rates to compensate for the reduction in weight as well as new valving for the monotube dampers. Would you choose a four-cylinder F-Type over a V6- or even a V8-powered one?
