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.
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.
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.
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.
The Jaguar F-Type is one of the most compelling sports cars to come along in years, primarily because it adheres so closely to the classic sports car formula: open top, two seats, rear-wheel drive. (The sexy looks, sexy speed and sexy noises help too.) So why would Jaguar add all-wheel drive to that equation?
Jaguar Land Rover Special Vehicle Operations built a special F-Type for Team Sky, who will be using it on Saturday during the Tour de France time trial. Loudness is guaranteed.
Okay, it's not called the Awesome Division, but JLR's Special Operations unit will have a team of 150 specialists committed to restoring vintage machinery, tailoring one-offs for customers, and making more stuff like the F-Type Project 7. They'll also be doing "branded goods". So... three out of four ain't bad.
From Doug DeMuro: So I'm walking around cars and coffee the other day, minding my own business, taking in all the sights, checking out a row of Nissan 370Zs that look identical to one another except for the color and placement of their Stance Nation window decals, and that's when I see it: the Jaguar F-Type Coupe.
