Eye-catcher. This is the first description that may come into your mind looking at the 2016 model of Jagual F-type S Coupe. The squinting eyes of the wild cat and its soft but powerful purr as you pull the beast for parking can really catch attentions. If you want to feed your ego, then we are not going to hinder you.
Modesty set aside, F-type S Coupe is one of the best in the sports car segment. Though it may not be included in the top three but we know the cutthroat nature of competition between sports cars. Standing below the top 3 isn’t a bad thing at all! Even though most of the fine attributes of this Jaguar can be seen at the outside, drivers who want to take control of their prowess and speed, may be delighted of the 6-speed manual gearbox installed along with the V6 engine.
It is a smooth shifter that can perform precise motion and can give short throws. The pedals are noticeably placed wherein you can easily do your heel-and-toe performance, making the manual throttle as easy as a child’s game.
Right inside, you won’t be able to see a Victorian era’s gentleman’s conservative pickings. Instead, it is endowed by genuinely modern details such as digital displays and InControl telematics system.
There may be a few notes considering the downside of the F-type S Coupe. First, it is not as fast as it sounds or look. Second, it goes oh-bumpy on rough surfaces. So yes, it is… our heartthrob may not be perfect after all but weighing the pros and the cons, it is apparent that Jaguar F-type S Coups is still on the list of the most coveted sports car out there.
