Kitty Got Claws: The Jaguar F-Type S Coupe Review

This Jaguar F-Type S Coupe is the one to buy from all the F-Type range according to

Having previously driven the almighty F-Type R Coupe, we had to find out if the middling V6 setup was still the sweet spot in the range. Our test car came in at £73, 395 after having £13k of extras thrown at it. 0-60 is dealt with in 4.8 seconds and it will go on to a top speed of 171 MPH.

In S guise this F-Type puts out 374 BHP and 460 Nm of torque from its 3.0 litre V6 supercharged engine. 0-60 is dealt with in 4.8 seconds and it will go on to a top speed of 171 MPH.

As soon as you fire up that V6 you are welcomed by the smile inducing cacophony that only an F-Type can produce. It growls and crackles wonderfully, there is truly no other model of car on the market today that sounds as good as the F-Type!

In terms of the R coupe it is more subtle and less aggressive in its nature, but the soundtrack is still awesome. If you want to hush this big cat you can turn off the active exhaust, this closes a valve in the system which strangles the higher noteswe left it set to ON the whole time.
