Jaguar F-Type R: Pretty, Powerful, …Perfect

It’s been a hell of a year for those of us who love noise, horsepower, and cars that encourage driving shenanigans. The perfectly sculpted icing on this massively delicious cake has to be the Jaguar F-Type R coupe.

It’s a simple recipe at first glance; you take a powerful engine, pair it with a small rear-wheel-drive coupe, and you make the world happy. Jaguar has a lot more going on underneath the surface here though, as there cabin is wonderfully laid out and designed, the driving experience is precise and tight, and the multitude of smart systems employed keep everything moving in the right direction.

The Jaguar F-Type is pretty. It’s also quite powerful. The F-Type is… perfect.

[Disclaimer: Jaguar tossed me the keys to the F-Type R for a week, and included a tank of gas. I went through that tank, and smiled during the next few fill-ups as well because it meant I got to hear more F-Type R noise.]

  • I was watching this in my office and the crackle from the exhaust made me jump. Had it a little too loud… It was worth it.

    Watched it again for the opening sequence. Surely it's not too late for jaguar to use that for a Super Bowl ad.

    Solid as hell.

    • I like the teaser version I did on Instagram… with Nirvana in the background. Can't get away with that on YouTube though

        That teaser is BITCHIN'. Must've missed the post first time around. But that gave me the opportunity to rewarch the Hellcat happy holidays vid. Also bitchin'.

    I think that I was assigned the wrong life.

    How can I get your life?

    Wanna swap? 🙂

    • Yeah sure, just give up ALL MONEY…

  • Would they just put the damned emblem back on the hood where it belongs? Am I the only one who can see that? It's like a booger on a supermodel's nostril there.

  • **gasp**
    **bites finger in shock/awe/lust**

    "Noise, horsepower & shenanigans"

    …am I the only one who is missing "grace, pace & space"?

    I parked next to one of these at a Waffle House on New Year's Day – I think the driver had a stroke when he saw me parking my POS Hyundai Accent next to it.
