2015 Jaguar F-Type R Coupe: A New, More Powerful F-Type
August 19, 2014
Up until this weekend, our 2015 Jaguar F-Type R coupe was the most powerful, most aggressively-tuned F-Type you could buy. It no longer holds that distinction after the introduction of the Jaguar F-Type Project 7, the first vehicle from the company's Special Operations Team.
It's a limited-edition roadster that features revised bodywork, a 575-horsepower version of the 5.0-liter V8 under the hood of our coupe and a few other smaller design details. The unmistakable aero cover behind the rear seats was designed to recall the look of the legendary Jaguar D-Type while the Project 7 name recalls the seven victories Jaguar has achieved at the 24 Hours of Le Mans.
Nice car, but I still like the look of our coupe better. And I could live with only 550-hp.
