Audi stable one can pick the RS5 (also way faster & more powerful).

Also the base R8 was available @ 1.6 cr & now it should be >25% atleast but still for it becomes a choice for some one shopping in the 1 Cr category.

BMW has the 650i to offer at a similar price point & should be more powerful & faster too (Not sure if 650i is still selling or not) If not then the 640d is exciting enough.

Porsche has the Boxter S (was available for 69.3L pre budget - Now can add about 25% increase) which is one of the most fun cars around & yes the 911 Carrera 4s was aprox 1.4cr before now should be 25% more of that making it shy under 2 Cr

Nissan GTR not sure if it is available (But seen some discussions on our forums itself) can be got here through Nissan on request & falls into the 1-1.5 Cr range

The F-Type being a GT Sports car these are just what i pointed out were the 2 door coupe / convertible sports cars if one is flexible then more exciting cars like M5 can be looked at which is available now for aprox 1.25 Cr (Post budget price)

* Note all prices are Ex-Showroom
The way I see it the F type is going to be around 1.3-1.4 on road for the V8 Supercharged. I doubt the pricing will go over this. That means around 1-1.1 ex showroom.

Leave the lesser variants out, the V8 supercharged on the F type is 495bhp. The XK with the NA V8 is over a second slower, and much larger and a similar price now after the budget.

The XKR was 1.3 ex showroom before the budget. You are adding only 25%, but it actually works out to 30% odd increase after the budget.

Just because someone is spending 1 or 1.2 cr doesn't mean they'll easily spend another 80 lacs or so. So no point in adding the R8 to this comparison, or the Carrera S.

The Boxster will give this competition in terms of dynamics, but then again the F type is more powerful.

The RS5 is great, but the F type is a roadster, so it will have its own niche.

The 650i was 1cr on road, now it will be around 1.2ish, but again this is sloppy compared to what the F type is supposed to be. The 640d is even slower, but yes its got enough thrills without being supercar quick.

The M5 is now 2cr almost on road. Pre budget it was around 1.3ish ex showroom with a decent amount of options.

The way you see i.e. 1.3 Cr - 1.4 OTR then there is no point in discussing further
So theres no point in listing out the options against the F Type as 1.3-1.4 Cr OTR will be FANTASTIC pricing for the Supercharged V8

So no further discussion on this

The Boxter S is being globally compared to the F Type. Also the Base F type (335 hp) is similar on power to the Boxter S (311 hp)

I never said that i am enlisting only roadster options , i meant equally or more "EXCITING" options so pointed out the RS5

Base M5 costs 1.02 Cr (Pre Budget) Why compare the car with options & make it sound expensive ?

1) True they are competitors, but then like Autocar said its unlikely we will get the base F type.

2) Because there is no such thing as a base M5, most cars come in almost fully loaded since they are pre specced. Unless you want to wait 4 months and wait till your order is made.

There is no Base Jaguar XK in India. The line starts with the XKR, and the pre-budget prices started at 1.25cr ex-showroom Mumbai.

The pre-budget price for the 911 was exactly 1.30cr ex-showroom Mumbai, and you can imagine post-budget prices on both these to be actually very high.

The F-Type is a sub-XK car, and with these prices it can easily cost upwards of 1cr.

As rightly pointed out by Saarth, there is no base XK available in India, not sure why!
There's the XK-R, XKR-S & also a special edition XK-R was launched few months back.
