Where form meets function

Giving Mercedes-Benz a run for their money at this year’s Los Angeles Motor Show, Jaguar has unveiled the F-Type R Coupe featuring a 542-bhp supercharged 5.0-liter V8. Drivers, meanwhile, will be going from 0-60 mph in 4 seconds with a top speed of 186 mph. Described as “probably the most extreme cold-formed aluminium body side in the automotive industry” an innovative single-piece aluminum pressing provides the car with torsional rigidity and, combined with the vehicle’s lightness, creates a stable ride and precise handling even at top speeds. See the car in action below and look for it to hit the streets beginning March 2014.
