2015 
Jaguar 
F-­‐Type 
R 
Coupe 
Review
The 
2015 
Jaguar 
F-­‐Type 
R 
Coupe 
is 
breathtaking.
Designed 
by 
Ian 
Callum, 
many 
are 
considering 
this 
his 
best 
work 
yet 
-­‐ 
and 
that's 
saying 
something.
Callum 
designed 
the 
Aston 
MarHn 
V12 
Vanquish, 
a 
beauty 
that 
was 
featured 
in 
the 
James 
Bond 
film 
Die 
Anot...
If 
they're 
considering 
this 
car 
to 
be 
more 
gorgeous 
than 
something 
that 
James 
Bond 
drove, 
I 
had 
to 
see 
...
The 
F-­‐Type 
has 
integrated 
lines 
throughout 
the 
body 
that 
remind 
you 
of 
the 
Aston 
MarHns 
Callum 
has 
desi...
The 
front 
of 
the 
car 
reminds 
you 
of 
the 
newer 
Jaguar 
models, 
but 
the 
grill 
has 
been 
inherited 
from 
the ...
Going 
backwards, 
the 
top 
of 
the 
car 
slowly 
descends 
to 
the 
tail, 
offering 
a 
full-­‐window 
rear 
hatch.
Everything 
about 
this 
car 
reminds 
me 
of 
an 
Aston 
MarHn 
-­‐ 
but 
somehow, 
it's 
put 
together 
in 
a 
beQer 
fa...
It's 
more 
compact 
yet 
sHll 
has 
enough 
aRtude 
to 
rule 
the 
road.
I 
jumped 
inside 
and 
immediately 
heard 
the 
v8 
erupt.
This 
is 
by 
far 
the 
best 
feature 
of 
the 
car 
-­‐ 
that 
sound 
signature.
This 
supercharged 
5.0L 
V8 
is 
loud 
and 
mean; 
you 
might 
want 
to 
leave 
your 
kids 
at 
home, 
they'll 
be 
scare...
In 
dynamic 
mode, 
the 
sound 
changes 
over 
to 
a 
manic 
scream 
-­‐ 
pushing 
away 
the 
purring 
growl 
from 
before...
The 
exhaust 
pops 
as 
if 
there 
is 
a 
firecracker 
under 
the 
car.
The 
interior 
is 
not 
as 
beauHful 
as 
the 
exterior 
but 
its 
sHll 
quite 
impressive.
The 
combinaHon 
of 
"sporHness" 
and 
luxury 
within 
the 
cabin 
is 
a 
great 
fit 
for 
the 
car.
The 
soY 
leather, 
which 
features 
R 
highlights, 
is 
comfortable 
for 
long-­‐ 
distance 
cruising.
The 
seats, 
however, 
also 
offer 
the 
support 
necessary 
for 
high-­‐speed 
cornering.
As 
for 
performance, 
this 
car 
is 
faster 
than 
ever 
before.
Going 
zero-­‐to-­‐60 
in 
under 
four 
seconds 
makes 
it 
the 
fastest 
V8 
that 
Jaguar 
offers.
And 
the 
torque 
that 
the 
F-­‐Type 
offers 
is 
simply 
phenomenal 
-­‐ 
launching 
this 
car 
forward 
and 
launching ...
The 
Hres 
are 
255mm 
wide 
in 
the 
front, 
with 
some 
fat 
295mm 
Hres 
in 
the 
back.
These 
Hres 
are 
idenHcal 
to 
those 
of 
Jaguar's 
V8 
S 
Roadster.
The 
handling 
is 
phenomenal 
as 
well, 
with 
the 
steering 
having 
a 
great 
deal 
of 
precision 
to 
it.
The 
chassis 
and 
weight 
distribuHon 
helps 
this 
car 
sHck 
to 
the 
road, 
handling 
corners 
at 
a

The

  12. 12. This is by far the best feature of the car -­‐ that sound signature.
  13. 13. This supercharged 5.0L V8 is loud and mean; you might want to leave your kids at home, they'll be scared of the roar.
