Jaguar F-Type R Coupé Makes Dynamic Debut

The Jaguar F-TYPE R Coupé, the most dynamically capable, performance-focused, production Jaguar ever, has made a dramatic debut in Los Angeles at Raleigh Studios.
The first glimpse the assembled 500 media, celebrities and customers at the exclusive reveal event saw of F-TYPE R Coupé was of it accelerating towards them before it passed under their grandstand into a hidden tunnel at full throttle.
Ian Callum, Director of Design, Jaguar said: “Creating a sports Coupé is the purest of design tasks, and also the most challenging; get it right and aesthetically the result will be as dynamic as the car should be rewarding to drive. In F-TYPE Coupé, I believe we’ve got it right.
“The dramatic debut of the 405kW F-TYPE R Coupé in Los Angeles this evening – possibly the most dynamic reveal of a car ever – underlines its performance credentials.”
The F-TYPE Coupé model line-up is headlined by the F-TYPE R Coupé, its 405kW/680Nm 5.0-litre V8 supercharged engine enabling acceleration from 0-100km/h in 4.2-seconds, and a top speed of 300km/h (limited). F-TYPE S Coupé and F-TYPE Coupé models complete the range, powered respectively by 280kW and 250kW versions of Jaguar’s 3.0-litre supercharged V6 engine, giving 0-100km/h in 4.9/5.3-seconds and top speeds of 260/275km/h.
The F-TYPE Coupé range complements the existing 2013 ‘World Car Design of the Year’ award-winning F-TYPE Convertible model line-up of F-TYPE, F-TYPE S and F-TYPE V8 S.
