The F-Type coupe is officially here! Jaguar’s recent launch events at Willow Springs Raceway and Motorland Aragon demonstrated the F-Type S and F-Type R in some gorgeous corners and straightaways – with gorgeous summer sunlight in both places to accentuate the F-Type Coupe’s gorgeous form.

The new F-Type Coupe is hot as the summer sun these days – but which is best? And among the standard, S and R — which fits your budget and performance criteria?

Here is a quick walk through the JaguarUSA.com online configurator, where I built a $77,000 F-Type S Coupe and racked up a $92,000 total in the process. There are many tempting options, including the poshest 20-inch wheels and carbon-ceramic brakes kit — but overall there are a few things to select to make the most villainous impact for your British pounds.

Base, S or R? The S packs the uprated 380-horsepower supercharged V6 engine and various other goodies above the base car – and seems like the best fit for many. The central exhausts are even a bit more attractive and distinctive than the quad pipes of the $99,000 V8 F-Type R Coupe – and the sound they make is perhaps lovlier as well.

EXTERIOR COLORS

White is always going to look outstanding on this car, but the overwhelming number of dark blues, greens and tans will not be as unique or visually powerful on the road. To each his own! I picked the Italian Racing Red, eventually.

WHEELS

Definitely would recommend one of the up-rated wheel sizes, and also suggest the black rim finish to match the tinted black glass roof from below.

BRAKES

The standard brakes are probably just fine for all non-track use, in which case the Super brake upgrade may be worthwhile. The steeply-priced carbon brakes seem like overkill.
