The Video Reviews of The Wild 542bhp Jaguar F-type Coupe R Are Starting To Trickle In & The Verdict Is Good.
Since announcing the launch of the Jaguar F-type Coupe, we've been waiting for somebody to review it. Well, the great news is that the reviews have started and most people absolutely love it. Make no mistake, Jaguar has hit it out of the park with this beast.
The Jaguar F-Type R Coupe puts down 542hp through its rear wheels. The supercharged 5-litre V8 engine is the same powerplant used in the XKR-S and XFR-S, neither of which is lacking any poke. There are key electronic and mechanical developments here, though, not least a structure that's 80 per cent stiffer than that seen in the F-type convertible and that's the real difference in the driving experience, it transforms the car.
In the video below, EVO magazine gets to grips with the F-type Coupe R on road and track and delivers his verdict. With the Porsche 911, Aston V8 Vantage and Audi R8 all within touching distance, the Jag won't have life easy. And neither does its rear tyres when EVO has a go.
The team at XCAR spent some time getting to grips with the all-new 2015 Jaguar F-Type R. With 543bhp, an angry 5.0-litre supercharged V8 and one of the best noises ever to fall out of a car, it's safe to say Jaguar's on to a winner. It's the car Jag should have been making for years.
Watch as Sutcliffe takes a brave pill and switches off all the safety systems to find out just how poised and well-balanced the new Jaguar F-type coupe is. Then look on in as he drives ex-F1 ace Martin Brundle's Eagle Jaguar E-type to trace this new car's history.
