2015 Jaguar F-Type Coupe R Hits the TrackJanuary 11th, 2014
If the looks and specs of the upcoming Coupe version of the Jaguar F-Type V8 aren’t exciting enough, just wait until you get a load of this video of the beastly 542bhp F-Type V8 R. Autocar’s Steve Sutcliffe takes a prototype car for a ride around the track at Barcelona’s Circuit de Catalunya. But before he takes it out for long, we get a brief look at the car that served as it’s inspiration, the classic E-Type.
While the convertible is certainly no slouch, the coupe is said to have a chassis that’s a whopping 80% stiffer than the convertible, and the extra 55 horses certainly don’t hurt it either. Looks like Porsche might have something to worry about with this bad boy.
