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.
