In 2015, the F Type now introduced the ZF six-speed manual. This transmission is only available for the V6 models. There is a mechanical limited-slip differential on the V6 S and an electronic limited-slip differential on the V8. The engine choices will remain unchanged for CoupÃ©, but with the addition of a higher performance V8 R model producing 550 PS (400 kW; 540 hp) in lieu of the convertible V8 S model.
The F-Type interior has a two-seater setup with the leather interior and control buttons finished in aluminium.

There is also a choice of flat-bottom or alcantara finish for the three-spoke steering wheel and buttons finished in soft-feel matt black.

The S and V8 S versions get an â€œactive exhaust systemâ€ which opens special valves over 3,000 rpm to intensify the sound profile. There is a retractable rear wing spoiler and door handles that are left hidden with the bodywork until needed.
