Jaguar F-Type R Coupe : Overview

The Jaguar F-type R coupe tops Jaguar’s new sports-automobile vary; it’s the most powerful series-production Jag model ever. It responds accurately to even the tiniest of steering inputs through an exceptionally stiff body. It is fearsome, loud, and fast.

Does that description appear fitting for a Jaguar, that for many years has been the place you opt for snug high-speed sitting rooms? Chief engineer Mike Cross replies: “It’s time for a change. This automotive may be a ton of than just the coupe version of the Jaguar F-type roadster. It’s a high-performance sports automobile with a totally totally different character.”

“Utterly completely different” would possibly be overstating things a touch, but it did strike us as more intense than the already totally committed Jaguar F-type roadster. The coupe has the same basic dimensions and proportions as the convertible and comes with the identical interior, which is relatively slim. It options a beautiful, sweeping roofline with a rear window that reminds us a bit of the E-type coupe. The roof panel is obtainable either as aluminum or panoramic glass, that adds concerning seven pounds. Weight, especially in the roof, could be a major perform­ance killer. It’s no stripped-down Porsche GT3 RS, this automotive.

But the biggest visual payoff is at the rear, due in part to the wonderful absence of a spoiler—a minimum of, a comprehensible one. When the car exceeds 70 mph, an air deflector nesting within the tapered shut-line rises to cut back carry by a claimed 265 pounds. It retracts once more once you impede.

Besides its silhouette and rear end, it is the R coupe’s precise driving dynamics that distinguish it from the high roadster version, the Jaguar F-type V-eight S. Thank the automobile’s very rigid aluminum unibody. Hydroformed aluminum beams that sweep up the A-pillars, along the roof edges, and back to the beltline replace the structural contribution of traditional B-pillars. Cross asserts that the Jaguar F-type coupe is the most torsionally rigid production automotive Jaguar has ever designed.

Its extraordinary rigidity enables the R coupe’s sharp steering and sensitive adaptive dampers, that respond to road-surface changes every 0.5 second. The web effect for the driving force: detailed data on road conditions with no need for hyper-stiff springs and shocks.

The direct-injected and supercharged V-eight comes with 55 additional horsepower than the V-eight S roadster for a total of 550 horses at 6500 rpm, simply a hair a lot of than Jag’s 1992–1994 XJ220 superflop. In the F coupe, that’s enough stonk to push the car over 186 mph. A higher prime speed would need more durable tires, so to save lots of prices, Jaguar engineers limited the Jaguar R coupe to 186 precisely.
