Jaguar F-Type V8 S 2014

The all-new sporty Jaguar F-type continues the lineage of the track-capable Jaguars of the ’50s and ’60s, following the C-, D- and E-Types, at the very least, in alphabetical order, and finally fulfill­ing the badge of an ’80s project and 2000 concept that never came to fruition. As a result, it shows similarities to the well-loved XKE, even though the last two-seat Jaguar was the XJ-S. In its most potent trim, the F-Type acquires the big-boy, 5.0-liter V-8 from its kin, but little brother status regulates it to a bit fewer horsepower. Keep in mind that it still has about 300 or so fewer pounds to move and two extra gears to work with, resulting in a 0-60 time that betters the XKRs. It also packs some snazzy performance goodies, such as an active electronic differen­tial and an active exhaust, but its real mission has shone through thanks to the absence of electric-assisted steering, a near 50/50 weight distribution and massive 15-inch brake rotors. This is Jaguar made for track days, just like its alphabetized forebears.Jaguar F-Type V8 S 2014 photoJaguar F-Type V8 S 2014 photo2Jaguar F-Type V8 S 2014 backJaguar F-Type V8 S 2014 interior
