Everyone loves a bad boy… Girls want to be with him and guys want to be him. Why? Because bad boys are sexy. The 2016 Jaguar F-Type S is a bad boy, which through the transitive property of “you are what you drive,” this humble Midwestern is a bad boy too…. Well at least for a week.
The Jaguar F-Type S cuts through air like a shark cuts through the ocean. Its lines are an infusion of aerodynamics and beauty. They are aggressive and sleek, but not intimidating. Its authentic air vents, pop up spoiler, and powerful brakes show that the F-Type isn’t just a pretty face.
While the Porsche 911 compromises luxury for performance, the Jaguar F-Type S blends the two together beautifully. The airplane and racing inspired cabin on the F-Type S takes the term luxury sports car to a new level. It is exceptionally beautiful with ultra-soft leather on nearly every surface. The model I was driving included the optional performance seats, which are racing inspired.
You feel powerful behind the wheel! That is thanks to a 3.0L supercharged V6 with 380 horsepower and a throaty exhaust. With zero to sixty times of 5.3 with a manual transmission and 4.8 with an automatic transmission, the Jaguar F-Type S isn’t the fastest car in its segment, but it feels faster than the rest of the segment. It is exhilarating to punch it from a stoplight and hear massive roar come from the F-Type’s dual exhaust.
The 2016 Jaguar F-Type S was built to make you feel alive… As you cruise along A1A, you feel the wind blow through your hair as you are wrapped in premium leathers. You pull up to your date’s house and she hears the rumble from the exhaust. You then get on highway 95 with a spirited force, adrenaline is pumping through your veins you are grinning from ear to ear. As you drive to the restaurant, patrons jaws begin to drop. The car is beaming with sex appeal. Then when it is time to call it a night, you take the scenic route home so you can spend a few extra moments with the F-Type…. Whats the rush? Bad boys always get the girl!
