One level below the ultimate SVR is the next hottest Jaguar drop-top in the form of the F-Type R. At the touch of a button, the electric soft-top lowers and turns the already stunning F-Type into even more of a show-stopper. The looks are matched by the performance, courtesy of a 5.0-liter supercharged V8 with outputs of 542 hp and 502 lb-ft of torque. An eight-speed automatic gearbox and a rear-biased all-wheel-drive system are standard fare.
Although black by default, the soft-top can be specified in other colors for an additional cost. Noticeable from the outside are LED headlights with signature DRLs, 20-inch alloy wheels, and a wind deflector. The interior features 12-way power-adjustable seats upholstered in Windsor leather, along with single-zone climate control, a rearview camera, and a ten-inch touchscreen for infotainment functions like SiriusXM and HD Radio, as well a full smartphone integration. Driver assistance gear comprises a driver condition monitor, front/rear parking aids, and lane keep assist.
