2015 Jaguar F-Type V8 S Review

Jaguar F-Type is supercharged 5.0-litre V8 engine with a sleek two-door design – roofless upon your choosing – the flagship Jaguar F-Type Convertible not only looks the business, it’s also a genuinely brilliant piece of kit.

The V8 S’s list price also places the British muscle car between the top-spec Porsche Boxster GTS and entry-level 911 Carrera convertible. But while both six-cylinder Germans are available with manual transmissions, the feisty Brit is offered exclusively with a super slick eight-speed paddle-shifted automatic transmission

The PRND lever sticking out of the transmission tunnel won’t bother most potential buyers, though, particularly as the Jaguar beats both Porsches for power and torque.It’s faster to 100km/h, too, with the V8 S hitting triple figures in a claimed 4.3 seconds – 0.5sec quicker than the Stuttgart twins. A 300km/h top speed is available.

Standard equipment does include automatic bi-xenon headlights, LED daytime running lights, rain-sensing wipers, rear parking sensors, electric sports seats, single-zone automatic climate control, an 8.0-inch touchscreen with navigation, and a 380W 10-speaker Meridian stereo.

Adaptive sports suspension is also thrown into the mix, along with an electronic active rear differential, 20-inch Turbine alloy wheels and Jaguar’s ‘Super Performance Braking System’ with red-painted calipers.
