The Jaguar F-Type R Coupé represents the pinnacle of the F-Type range. Powered by Jaguar's 5.0-litre supercharged petrol V8 all-aluminium engine in 550PS and 680Nm form, the F-Type R Coupé achieves headline figures of 0-60mph in 4.0-seconds with an electronically limited top speed of 186mph, 50-75mph taking a mere 2.4-seconds. CO2 emissions are 259g/km.
The R Coupé's supercharged engine delivers not only exhilarating performance but also tremendous efficiency thanks to the technologies incorporated into it, including spray-guided direct injection (SGDI) and dual independent variable cam timing (DIVCT). The high-pressure die-cast lightweight aluminium block is stiffened with cast-iron liners and cross-bolted main bearing caps, providing refinement to match its power. The four-valve cylinder heads are constructed from high-grade, bespoke aluminium, between them sitting the Roots-type twin vortex supercharger fed by two intercoolers, which feature their own water-cooling circuit to reduce the temperature of the pressurised air, thereby optimising power and efficiency.
The torsional rigidity of the Jaguar F-Type R Coupé's aluminium structure has ensured the best possible basis for offering the connected feel, agility and engaging driving experience expected of a Jaguar sports car. Every response, from the steering to the gearchange, throttle, brakes and the all-round double wishbone suspension, has been finely honed to be accurate, involving and immediate.
