2015 Jaguar F-Type R Is Power

by Mike Hunter

Jag_F-TYPE_R_Coup__Polaris_Image_201113_14The fastest car ever developed from Jaguar, this 2015 F-Type is a road master with a roar that demonstrates the power of this sports car. The 5.0-liter, 550-horsepower, V-8 supercharged engine is at the core of this machine. With its astonishing torque of 502 lb-ft, it is no wonder that this supercharged and intercooled DOHC 32-valve, V-8, aluminum-block-and-heads, direct-fuel-injection engine boasts impressive zero to 60 in 3.5 seconds.

Jag_F-TYPE_R_Coup__Polaris_Interior_Image_201113_22This high-performance vehicle is met with precision braking, a sturdy and responsive experience behind the wheel and some impressive options, making this F-Type the envy of Ferrari and Porsche enthusiasts. With the car’s top speed of 186 mph, the Jaguar Super Performance Braking system with red calipers is designed to keep control at high speeds, benefitting from the sport suspension with Adaptive Dynamics to maintain comfort and reliability. The switchable Active Support Exhaust with quad exhaust pipes looks strong and sounds even stronger. Maybe a bit too brazen, this “roar from behind” offers a meanness that Jaguar clearly is making a statement in returning to the powerful machines it became so famous for in the ’60s.

Jag_F-TYPE_R_Coup__Polaris_Interior_Image_201113_24The curves and the stance of this F-Type R are truly a sight to behold. The all-new rear is sleek and substantive while the curved glass top brings sporty lines and incorporates the outside with the cabin. The performance seats with leather facings and the “R” embossing look sporty and reminiscent of the racing model influences that make this Jaguar the most impressive ever. The coupe two-door style is tight and roomy at the same time. Configured to “hug” the driver during “more enthusiastic driving,” this power piece is built to perform. The dark “technical” weave aluminum console trim with “R” graphic is enhanced by the configurable ambient interior lighting that includes a selectable palette. Dual zone climate control with the optional Climate Pack includes heated seats and steering wheel. The Meridian 770W Audio System allows for those escapable moments and can even drown out the roar of the engines if so desired.
