Best of the Best 2016: Wheels | Coupes: Jaguar F-Type R AWD Coupe

With the F-Type R AWD, Jaguar has given drivers greater control of the car, even when racing hard...

AWD stands for “all-wheel drive,” and by adding this feature to the F-Type R, Jaguar has given drivers greater control of the car, especially when they’re pushing it hard around a racing line. The torque-vectoring technology provides additional stability through the corners by applying the brake to the inside rear wheel. The F-Type R also remains one of the best-sounding coupes, with a sport exhaust that emits a resounding cackle when the car pulls away on the straights. The car has an all-aluminum body and weighs just over 3,800 pounds. Its relatively low weight and 550 hp supercharged V-8 enable it to reach 60 mph from a standstill in 3.9 seconds.

  • Standard adaptive suspension and adjustable driving modes vary the car’s personality from fun to fiery.

  • Interior features unique to the F-Type R include twin-stitched leather and dark aluminum trim. 

  • Jaguar’s recently expanded warranty covers maintenance for 5 years or 60,000 miles.
