2015 Jaguar F-Type R Coupe: 2016 Brings Manual Gearbox

December 2, 2014

2015 Jaguar F-Type R Coupe

One of the few gripes some enthusiasts have had about Jag's sexy sports car, including our 2015 Jaguar F-Type R Coupe, is the unavailability of a three-pedal gearbox. Yes, many of us traditionalists prefer the added engagement and satisfaction that properly working a clutch pedal and shift lever bring to the driving experience. For the 2016 F-Type, there's some very good and somewhat bad news on this front.

First the good news. Next year, as we indicated in our 2014 Los Angeles Auto Show coverage, Jaguar will offer a true manual transmission in the F-Type. The semi-bad news? It's only going to be available in the rear-drive V6 versions.
