2015 Jaguar F-Type R Coupe: Perfect Car for a Tour of Los Angeles
July 7, 2015
Over a recent weekend, I had a house-guest who wanted to tour Los Angeles and see all the sights. Two days isn't much when it comes to a city so large, so it's a tall order to be comfortable and entertaining through it all, but our long-term 2015 Jaguar F-Type R Coupe was the perfect vehicle for the job.
We drove 90 miles up the coast (and through the mountains), stopped at Neptune's Net for fish, watched the surfers, checked out the city skyline at the Getty Center and rented some bikes to cruise the Venice Beach bike path.
As if to mirror the amusement I got out of her Australian accent, Sarah laughed every time the Jag started up and growled to life. As a result, I left Jag in "loud" mode all weekend long. There may or may not have been a brake stand burnout involved in the weekend's frivolity as well.
At one point in the weekend, I thought "the convertible would've been better for this," but when it came to out-of-town levels of luggage, that definitely wasn't the case. Her massive luggage fit fine in the coupe's trunk, but wouldn't have stood a chance in the F-Type convertible.
If you've got the means to buy an F-Type, you should. If you don't, you should rent one every time your friends come to visit.
