After its introduction as a convertible last year, the 2015 Jaguar F-Type adds a coupe model this year, broadening its 2-seat sports car's appeal to those who want a fixed roof...and more available power.
The Jaguar F-Type is all-new for 2014, returning the brand to the 2-seat sports car market for the first time in decades.
With the overwhelmingly successful introduction of the F-Type last year, Jaguar's first sports car in 40 years adds a hardtop coupe to the lineup. But there's a lot more to this new model than just keeping rain off your head permanently. The F-Type Coupe literally adds a roof to the convertible, creating a super-stiff structure that let Jaguar engineers sharpen the suspension and steering, and add a 550-horsepower supercharged V8. That power's sent through a slick-shifting 8-speed automatic transmission, while your inevitably high rate of speed can be scrubbed off with the optional $12,000 carbon-ceramic matrix brakes. Like the convertible, the coupe's shape blends classical and contemporary elements into an elegantly aggressive car that turns heads wherever it goes.
