Jaguar F-Type R: Pretty, Powerful, …Perfect

[youtube]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gTuwwRelgm0[/youtube]

It’s been a hell of a year for those of us who love noise, horsepower, and cars that encourage driving shenanigans. The perfectly sculpted icing on this massively delicious cake has to be the Jaguar F-Type R coupe.

It’s a simple recipe at first glance; you take a powerful engine, pair it with a small rear-wheel-drive coupe, and you make the world happy. Jaguar has a lot more going on underneath the surface here though, as there cabin is wonderfully laid out and designed, the driving experience is precise and tight, and the multitude of smart systems employed keep everything moving in the right direction.

The Jaguar F-Type is pretty. It’s also quite powerful. The F-Type is… perfect.

[Disclaimer: Jaguar tossed me the keys to the F-Type R for a week, and included a tank of gas. I went through that tank, and smiled during the next few fill-ups as well because it meant I got to hear more F-Type R noise.]
