Does the 2015 Jaguar F-Type Coupe R have good enough traction control system to go above the tree line and nearly 12,000 feet of elevation in the rain? TFLcar wanted to find out. It’s not easy to tame 550 supercharged horses eager to leap out of this Coupe R’s 5.0L V8. This is the top of the line F-Type Coupe. The exhaust sounds amazing, and the car backs it up with manufacturer rated 4.0 second 0-60 mph acceleration.
It was a little tricky to navigate the Loveland Pass and its thousand feet drop-offs in this powerful car. And who knew we would meet a classic Jaguar XK at the top. Check out the video to see for yourself.
The Coupe R starts at $99,000 and is on sale now.
