Jaguar has been producing some pretty amazing looking models in the past few years and one of them is the latest F-Type Coupe. It looks bad-ass and it performs and sounds like a mean machine.
All thanks to Jaguar Land Rover Malaysia, the all new F-Type S Coupe and F-Type Coupe R is now in Malaysia. Both looks similar in terms of looks but we would be lying if we say the same about the price. The F-Type Coupe is priced at RM899,888 and the R version on the other hand is priced at a whopping RM1,158,888. That’s like about RM260,000 price difference between the two variants!
In terms of performance, the standard Coupe version gets a 3.0 liter supercharged V6 that produces 375 horsepower and 460 Nm of torque. It gets 0-100km/h done in 4.9 seconds and a top speed electronically limited to 275km/h. The R version gets a 5.0 liter supercharged V8 that produces a solid 542 horsepower and 680 Nm of torque which is good enough to take you from 0-100km/h in just 4.2 seconds and a top speed of 300km/h. Well, to us it doesn’t sound that convincing when you have to pay an extra RM260,000 just to go 25km/h faster. But its Jaguar!
Of course there would be some difference in equipment for both variants. In this case, the R gets additional equipment which are Electronic Active Differential (EAD), stiffer spring rates, Super Performance Braking system, bespoke tune for Adaptive Dynamics damping, 20 inch Gyrodyne wheels (instead of 20 inch Tornado wheels which the S version gets), quad exhaust tips, winged performance seats with inflatable side bolsters, powered tailgate and as well as a panoramic roof. Others are pretty much similar for both variants.
Three colors are available to choose from for both models and they are Salsa Red, Stratus Grey and Polaris White.
