2015 Jaguar F-Type R Coupe: Shifter or Missile Launcher?
October 27, 2014
The 2015 Jaguar F-Type R Coupe's cabin is filled with cool little details that you won't find in a Porsche 911: toggle switches, the rising air vents and the so-cool shifter. The latter fits in your hand like a joystick, complete with a trigger for activating the electronic gear selection that always feels to me like it should control missiles or machine guns hidden behind the grille or headlights. Left lane hogs beware.
Indeed, it would require very little imagination to turn the F-Type into a James Bond car (a big reason why this massive 007 fan loves the F-Type) and perhaps not surprisingly, Jaguar isn't shying away from this implication.
