2015 Jaguar F-Type R Coupe: 550 Reasons To Go Drive
January 16, 2015
Any car will get you from point A to point B. And some cars can make that point-A-to-point-B drive enjoyable. But only a few are as memorable as the 2015 Jaguar F-Type R Coupe. Own an F-Type, and I guarantee you'll continually make excuses just to go drive it.
Much of that appeal lies with the supercharged 5.0-liter V8 engine. It's a raucous, gonzo beast that belts out outlandish power at any rpm. Best to keep the front wheels pointed completely straight before you put the hammer down. Oh, and have a clear path ahead of you, too.
Then there's the sport exhaust. With the loud mode turned on, a full throttle burst in a tunnel or underpass delivers such a crackling, pounding shockwave of noise that top fuel dragsters would be proud of it. It's addictive and completely grin inducing.
Of course, that addiction can lead to some pretty dismal fuel economy. But hey, gas is cheap right now, right? Let's go have some fun.
