This week I’m behind the wheel of a 2015 Jaguar F-Type S, a roadster which features a 3.0-liter supercharged V6 pumping out 380 horsepower. This car attracts attention wherever I go – I am constantly being stared at, given the thumbs up, or catching waves – and it’s not just because of its looks. With the car set to ‘Dynamic Mode,’ a second set of baffles opens up in the exhaust system and makes each up-shift, down-shift, and overrun sound like your are courting the Devil himself via a tail-pipe symphony.
A few hours after I picked the F-Type S up on Monday I took it to a local road course to see how the 3,500 pound machine handled itself in a performance environment. I came away suitably impressed – here’s the video on Autobytel’s YouTube channel, along with reviews of the car for Autobytel and The Car Guide.
