You’re not going to win.
A few weeks ago, a friend and Jalopnik reader—I’ll call him “Dave,” because that’s his name—got a new Jaguar F-Type with a stick shift. Naturally, I did what any normal friend would do: I congratulated him on the car. Then I invited myself to drive the car and film a video with it.
Jaguar wants you to think it just loves to be bad. It even hung a whole advertising campaign on that notion. So really, the biggest surprise about the new F-Type SVR is not its bewildering aggression, or its newly sharpened handling. The real shock is that it took Jaguar Land Rover Special Vehicle Operations two years…
Eleven years before the Jaguar F-Type you all know and love today, there was another F-Type. It was smaller and lighter, aimed at the Porsche Boxster instead of the 911. But by 2002, it was dead thanks to Jaguar’s pointless Formula One efforts and Ford counting those beans, no doubt.
Need a peaceful glow—not to mention, a sleek-looking car—on your computer desktop to help you survive the impending onset of Monday? No worries. None at all. We can help.
A lot of things have run through my mind when I’ve driven the Jaguar F-Type R. “This thing desperately needs more horsepower” has never been one of them. But we are in the age of overkill, and our beloved F-Type is about to get a heavy dose of just that. Meet the insane F-Type SVR.
One of the best and most beautiful sports cars around just got a little cheaper. Jaguar today announced the pricing for the 2017 Jag F-Type (good lord, we’re up to 2017 model year cars now? WOW) and it comes with a decent price cut.
The Jaguar F-Type is the car Steve McQueen would drive if he were still gracing the earth with his badass-ness. What do you need to know before you buy a Jaguar F-Type? Don’t worry, we’ll tell you everything right here in the Ultimate Buyer’s Guide.
Flooring it in a 550 horsepower, all-wheel drive Jaguar F-Type R is hard to describe, what with your brain pressing against the inside of your skull, your eyes bumping up against their sockets.
All I can say is that if you have the opportunity to drive a manual F-Type around Scotland in these last few sunny days left of this summer, don’t think about it for a second. Take a day off if you have to, because it’s well worth it.
Sometimes, you just have to say “Fuck it. I’m going for a drive.”
Evo drove the gorgeous F-Type Project 7 both on road and on the track, and it turned out to be slower than quite a few cars that also cut under its $165,000 price tag. Not that it matters.
You already know three-pedal manual transmissions aren’t the “performance option” anymore. The V8-powered 2016 Jaguar F-Type R is now all-wheel drive only in the U.S., so it can set you straight from an overcooked corner, but there’s more to sports cars than lap times. And the Jag’s new old-school six-speed manual…
Your prayers have been answered. It might only be on V6 models, but the 2016 Jaguar F-Type will be available with a manual gearbox. THANK YOU FOR SAVING THE MANUALS, JAGUAR. But hydraulic steering is now gone. Is it worth the trade?
Somehow John Hennessey managed to get hold of a Jaguar F-Type and gave it what it desperately needed: more power.
I think we can all agree that a car with an obscenely powerful motor is a good thing. But there's also something to be said about usable power, reasonable power, power that can be applied everyday. Power that doesn't overwhelm, like the kind you get on the Jaguar F-Type S Coupe, which has a 380 horsepower supercharged…
"It's Mercedes' 911 fighter!" That's what everybody, including us, had to say about the debut of the Mercedes-AMG GT today. But the last time I checked, there are more than just two powerful, high-end sports cars in the world.
The Jaguar F-Type Project 7 is a stunning sports car; no one can dispute that. It's also said to be the quickest Jaguar you can currently buy. But all that style and speed will not come cheap.
The Jaguar F-Type is an absolutely wonderful car and is a sign of more great things to come from the people at Jaguar. With it's arrival we also see the departure of the old XK, which probably was never the greatest thing on the road but still rather charming.
