This Jaguar F-Type R Coupe is a beautiful modern sports car with thrilling performance, presented in excellent condition, single owner from new and comes with a comprehensive dealer service history from new. Under the bonnet is a lively 542bhp 5.0-litre supercharged V8, driving the rear wheels via a short gearing eight-speed automatic transmission with paddle shift. As a result, the 0-60mph sprint takes just 4.0 seconds, and the car is capable of a top speed of 186mph. Launched one year after the convertible F-Type, the Coupe was first offered for sale in 2014, with ‘R’ variants receiving firmer springs and a more aggressive electrically-controlled limited-slip differential.
This Jaguar F-Type R is a stunning and handsomely specified sports coupe, with engaging handling and a thunderous V8. Presented in great condition and with a comprehensive history from new, it is as well-suited to daily duties and spirited sprints on winding roads, and is sure to delight its next owner wherever they choose to drive it.
BACKGROUND AND HISTORY:
The Jaguar F-Type (X152) is a series of two-door, two-seater grand tourers manufactured by British manufacturer Jaguar Land Rover under their Jaguar Cars marque since 2013. The car's JLR D6a platform is based on a shortened version of the XK's platform. It is the so-called "spiritual successor" to the famous E-Type. The car was launched initially as a 2-door soft-top convertible, with a 2-door fastback coupé version launched in 2013.
The F-Type underwent a facelift for the 2021 model year featuring a significantly restyled front end and dashboard.
The Jaguar F-Type R Coupe is one of the most desirable sports cars around. It’s gorgeous and wild enough to be considered against, say, Aston Martin’s V8 Vantage. The V6 has the sweeter handling balance but if you want the full drama and sense of occasion that the F-Type can deliver, the full-fat V8 is where it's at.
The F-Type R is powered by a 5.0-litre V8 producing 542bhp and 680Nm of torque. The colossal power allows the Jag to sprint forward from 0-60mph in 3.9 seconds before charging on to a limited top speed of 186mph – figures which put it up against some very serious rivals.
Floor the throttle and there’s a deep rumble and a surge of acceleration, and the R squirms as the tyres struggle to put down all that power. It’s an intense experience, and anyone who believes a dual-clutch gearbox is the only choice for sports cars should just try the F-Type’s excellent eight-speed auto.
As you’d expect, the R has been tuned to cope with the extra performance. The rigid Coupe body has allowed engineers to increase the suspension spring rates front and rear, while the adaptive damping has been – in engineering speak – optimised. And, in a first for Jaguar, the car also features torque vectoring by braking, which works alongside a new second-generation version of the brand’s electronic active differential to tame the power.
