We have seen a couple of fine Jaguar F-Type R Coupe reviews so far, and all of them pointed at the same thing – that it’s a bloody good car. Now though, it’s Chris Harris’ turn to get behind the wheel and give us his verdict. When he drove the Roadster version last year, he pointed out a couple of weaknesses in the F-Type that others just didn’t see. So this should be interesting.
As per usual, Chris begins by taking you through the features of the car, followed by a comprehensive road test, and then some track work which, inevitably, includes a healthy dose of oversteer.
Jaguar F-Type R Coupe, for those of you who may have forgotten, is powered by a supercharged 5.0 liter V8 engine, developing 550 horsepower and 680 nm of torque. It accelerates from 0 to 60 mph in 4.0 seconds flat, and has a top speed of 186mph (electronically limited).
