Check out the beauty of the 2015 Jaguar F-Type Coupe R in the fall colors of Boulder, Colorado. This cat is only easy to look at, it also makes spectacular noises and goes like stink.
The clam-shell hood tries to contain a 5.0L Supercharged V8 that throws down 550 horsepower @ 6,500 rpm and 502 lb-ft of torque @ 2,500 rpm. You can feel the torque just pushing you along at a touch of the throttle.
The F-Type R is also easy to drive on a daily basis. It will not beat you up too much, but it will reward with superb V8 growl and power when you want it. Jaguar says the 3,638 pound coupe will do a 4.0 second 0-60 mph.
The starting price for the Coupe R is $99,000 and there are not a lot of additional options, so you can stay right about $100,000. The same cannot be said for the Porsche 911, with which is competes against. If you want over 500 horsepower in the Porsche, you will have to go to the Turbo and be prepared to pay over $151,000 (even the less powerful 911 GTS is over $115,000).
Check out this fun little video of the F-Type R and stay tuned for another great video coming soon.
