2015 ECBG: Best Daily Driver: Jaguar F-Type R Coupe

Forget the performance statistics, the aluminum trimmed dashboard and the impeccably crafted leather seats. Forget the Gyrodyne Alloy wheels and the carbon ceramic brakes. They just don’t matter when a car sounds unbelievably good, and believe me, the Jaguar F-Type R Coupe sounds that good.

Oh, it has a 550 horsepower 5.0 liter supercharged V-8 engine? All I care about is that it makes that noise, that rumble that sends tingles through my spine and reverberates through my ears.

I mean, what really makes a great car? Its active differential with torque vectoring? Its sport suspension with active dynamics? Sure, those things don’t hurt, but do they matter when you grab a set of keys in the morning?

Okay, so they do. But I will never pass up a chance to drive a car that sounds as good as the F-Type R. I will never pass up the opportunity to feel as alive as the engine makes me feel when the 550 horsepower it produces passes through its quad exhaust pipes. And I know that I love the Jaguar F-Type R coupe.
