2015 Jaguar F-Type Coupe
As if there wasn’t reason enough to love the Jaguar F-Type roadster, the brand has gone and made a hardtop coupe version. And the results are stunning: a more gorgeous design, better performance, and oh yeah, more power!
Yes, this F-Type R Coupe now slots in at the top of the lineup, as both the beauty and brawn of the F-Type family.
With an exhaust note you can hear miles away, the same 5.0 liter supercharged V8 cranks output up 55, to 550 horsepower.
The fixed top allows for increased rigidity, and can send the coupe hurdling into corners at much higher speeds than its open top counterpart. There’s also lots of fancy new technology, and it all works together in near perfect harmony.
GREG CARLOSS: So in addition to that power, you’re also getting torque vectoring, which is a first for Jaguar. And you’re getting the second generation of the electronic active differential…and if you want to, you can add the optional carbon ceramic brakes, which are phenomenal on the track. So add all those things together and you do have a very competent track car.
JOHN DAVIS: Top speed for the R is limited to 186 miles per hour, with 0-60 coming in at an even four seconds.
For the less power hungry, or perhaps less well-off, thrill seekers, there are regular F-Type, and F-Type S Coupes, both using the smaller 3.0 liter supercharged V6. And don’t worry, there’s still plenty of car to enjoy.
Now, pricing for fun cars is never fun to hear, and the 2015 Jaguar F-Type R Coupe is no exception, starting at $100,000. V6 models start at a more reasonable 66,000.
Engine: 5.0 liter V8
Price: Starting at $100,000
