God Requested Greatness: Behold the Jaguar F-Type R Coupe

Test Drive

It makes that whole burning bush thing sound lame.

Just stop and listen for a moment. Life is about to get better. That’s because you’re about to hear the engine note of the new Jaguar F-Type R Coupe. This is what a supercharged 5.0-liter V8 with 543 horsepower sounds like. Alongside its roadster counterpart, the F-Type Coupe is the car we’ve waited decades for from Jaguar. And it was worth the wait. Perfection doesn’t happen overnight - or in six days. In fact, it’s hard to even pinpoint a direct F-Type R Coupe competitor.

It’s more powerful than a Porsche 911 but doesn’t have AWD like the 911 Turbo. Nor is it a track toy like the 911 GT3. It doesn't have the same GT aura of the Ferrari California T, Aston Martin Vantage or the DB9. The F-Type R Coupe is in a class all its own. And now those lucky devils at XCAR get behind the wheel to experience greatness.
