Jaguar F Type R
The crew from Xcar takes a look back on the modern performance cars they have experienced and ranks them by how good they sound. This clip is an absolute joy to the ears for anyone who loves the sound of a revving engine.
Jaguar is continuing to develop an even higher performance version of the F-Type with a more aggressive body, rumored to be turning up the power on its 5.0-liter supercharged V8 to take output as high as 600 horsepower.
Jaguar is in the middle of an image makeover. It wants people to know that it makes more than just big, comfy luxury cars. Underneath that there is an edge. In its recent ads, the company wants to be associated with a more tailored, witty form of villainy. The next step is showing that it's also fearless.
Jaguar pulled a fast one on us all when it unexpectedly shoehorned all 550 horsepower of the 5.0-liter supercharged V8 from the XKR-S into the new F-Type Coupe to supersede the existing V8 S model with the F-Type R. But that's just the beginning, according to the latest intel coming from the UK.
This is the Jaguar F-Type Coupe, the long-awaited hardtop counterpart to the F-Type roadster we tested earlier this year. Besides adding a roof, it shuffles up the engine range that we saw on the Convertible model, and in two of three cases, it cuts the cost of entry rather quite nicely (a happy contradiction to earlier reports).
