Can The Coupe King Please Stand Up

There can be only one.

Despite knowing the Jaguar F-Type R– even with all-wheel drive – would be trounced by the Nissan GT-R, Autocar decided the two high-performance two-doors should square up on the drag strip to decide which car is the king of the coupes. There are some similarities between the two models. Both come with 542 hp and weigh just over 3,750 pounds. But there’s more to a car than simply power-to-weight ratios. As you will see, the F-Type is no slouch. But Godzilla doesn’t mess about in a straight line.

As the pre-run numbers suggested, the supercar killer claimed yet another victim on the drag strip.
