Part beauty-pageant contestant and part muscle builder, this F-type looks the part.
Like its coupe counterpart, the R version of the Jaguar F-type raises a question: When is a hot car with sexy good looks, loads of thrust, and gunfighter reflexes a supercar?
Our semiofficial position on this burning question is that a car merits supercar status when it combines exceptional performance with exotic looks, limited availability, and uninhibited style. The Jaguar F-type R is parked just outside that paddock.
See, as groovy as Jag's hot two-seater is, there was always a little voice in the back of your head telling you to go easy with the right foot. The more time you spent with the R Coupe, the more front-of-mind the voice becomes and the more the vocalization transforms into a roaring, warning shout. This exclamation applied especially and almost exclusively to the supercharged, 550-horsepower V-8 version. Welp, that's all changed for 2016. You can't get a rear-wheel-drive R version of the F-Type any longer. Meaning that the one-year-only 2015 R Coupe is now a collector's item, especially if said collector is a drifting aficionado. The new version moves the 2016 F-Type R further up the performance ladder. Stop By GNL and Have a look.
The numbers we ever got from a 2015 F-Type R Coupe saw the run to 60 mph happening in 3.6 seconds. Adding 135 pounds of AWD goodies (3,873 versus 4,008 pounds for the 2016 model) drops that time to a Z06-equaling 3.3 seconds. The story is similar for the quarter mile: 11.8 at 122.3 mph for the RWD car against 11.6 at 121.5 mph for the AWD car.
Powered by a 550-hp supercharged 5.0-liter V-8 with an eight-speed automatic and all-wheel drive, the F-type R hustles with the best of them. It also heralds its sporting intent with a cacophony of cracks and pops from its exhaust.
The interior, delightfully appointed in leather with contrast stitching, is visually marvelous. The heated, 14-way adjustable bucket seats.
