Jaguar F-Type V8S Wins Best of the Best Convertibles

Finally, with an all-new platform but great deference to its E-Type forebear, the 2014 F-Type proves that a Jaguar can still turn heads with the best of today’s sporting convertibles. The F-Type V8 S, which has a starting price of $92,000, is the best-equipped of Jaguar’s three F-Type models. It is powered by a 5-liter supercharged engine that develops 495 hp and 460 ft lbs of torque from 2,500 to 5,000 rpm and sprints from zero to 60 mph in 4.2 seconds, sporting a top speed of 186 mph. Robb Report’s Robert Ross hits the track and discusses its virtues.
