Jaguar F-Type R – Road test review

The F-Type R – How about the performance?

This car not only looks great… but it has the muscle to back it up!  It’s got a 5.0liter supercharged V8 which produces 550hp and 501 ft/lbs of torque…  this will get you from 0-60 in 4.0 seconds.  Not too shabby! more…

I have to say… this car looks fantastic and it is serious competition now for Porsche, BMW and Mercedes-Benz.   Ever since Tata Motors of India acquired Jaguar (and land Rover) they have done a great job of not only improving the brand from a quality stand point… but they have brought back the excitement and enthusiasm for performance and the long history of sexy design.

If I were to criticize this car it would be with the interior…  I’m not really fond of the the materials they used overall and the center console layout looks kind of oldish…

You have to admit though… this car is dripping with sexy… and what I really like about it is they did not drop the ball with what’s under the hood.  This car is a cool machine by any standards.

The thing that made Jaguar’s popular back in the day was that is was different… it had character and LOOKS!  … well… THEY’RE BAAAACK!

Take a look at some great shots so you can enjoy the lines on this car….

One word….SEXY

So what’s your take on this car?  As for me… I really like it… and I think The F-Type has taken it’s rightful place back as a real serious contender in the market where Jaguar’s originally stood…  it’s a beautiful looking car that is well built, fast and really does a very good job of carving out a place for itself in a very crowded market.  Bravo to Jaguar!
