Review

Watch as Sutcliffe takes a brave pill, switches off all the safety systems and finds out just how poised and well-balanced the new Jaguar F-type R coupe is. Then look on as he drives ex-F1 ace Martin Brundle's Eagle Jaguar E-type to trace this new car's heritage.

Different from ?

Does it really take its styling from the E_type with its fat tyres, spoked wheels, bulging bonnet overhanging rounded body panels and upright windscreen,
To me it looks like the generic modern 2 door coupe blank, as used my Merc, Aston, BMW Porsche and old UTCAA , only difference here is that its got Jag written on it

OK, thanks Tom. I prefer my V8 to sound burbly and a bit NASCAR, Mercedes manage it on their AMG engines. This does sound aggressive but it seems to have fluttering, rattly quality that would grate very quickly.

Which each new offering,

Which each new offering, Jaguar seems to up their game. It's no wonder their worldwide sales increased some 47% in the last year. The F-Type R Coupe is a stunner.

Bomb,
