2015 Jaguar F-Type Coupe (fun, fast, and luxurious)
The Jaguar, Land Rover company has alot to celebrate after the last five years. A doubling in their sales, and new manufacturing facilities in the UK, China and Brazil, along with a very bright future.
It looks like American buyers like English performance vehicles since this is the companies biggest sales market. This is evident by the fact that just 12 months after the Jaguar F-Type convertible was introduced the company has captured a 10% share in that market and now the introduction of the Jaguar F-Type coupé to join the convertible.
It has taken three years from start to finish to create this car which is almost identical to the 2011 concept the company originally showed. [su_pullquote align=”right”]This is the fastest Jaguar ever and true to the design philosophy it is very sleek, simple, and beautiful.[/su_pullquote]This is the fastest Jaguar ever and true to the design philosophy it is very sleek, simple, and beautiful.
The coupé is very different from the convertible, it’s 80% stiffer and is designed to compete with cars like the Porsche Boxster. The coupe has also become more advanced with some new high-end tech features that allow you to plug your smart-phone into the vehicle and work the apps right from the in car screen.
You should be very comfortable in driving the vehicle as a daily driver, and equally as comfortable driving the vehicle on the racetrack.
