AutobahnDRIVER: The Base Jaguar F-Type Might Be The One You Want

Our friend Tom is German. He lives in Germania, and he drives German roads. He recently got his hands on the base Jaguar F-Type, and it seems it might be the one he finds most appealing. After all, 340 horsepower is nothing to sneeze at. Especially when you think of all the (relative) cash you’re saving.
Check out his adventure with the car in the video above.

    Nope..I was all set to trade my corvette in for the jaguar….f type and sorry to say it’s no sports car…the f type is a luxury sedan draped in the sexiest sheet metal out there..
    Stunning good looks but no way comparable to the boxster s with PDK and a few other sports options. The jag got slaughtered by the Porsche as far as buying and driving a real sports car.
    Almost bought the boxster s but at 83 grand MSRP I just couldn’t forget that is more than a c7 z06 would cost…
    I was sure the jaguar f type would be my favorite…but after driving it….it’s not even close…
    Especially not the supercharged v6 models…
    If you are going jaguar ? Than without question IMO the 5oo hp v8 would be the way to go…

      Ah, but Jaguar have never really made a sports car. The Original E-Type was only a sports cat because there was no better definition for it.
      You buy a sports car, or you buy a Jaguar.

        Isn’t it basically a GT? I see the Jaaag as a fast, comfortable tourer in which you would jet down to the Mediterranean with your concubine. Something one wouldn’t do in a Lamborghini Aventador, for example.
        In other words, it is more Ferrari 456 than Ferrari FXX.

          Yep, that’s what I’m thinking, and it’s been like that all through history, and probably not always deliberately.
          I’m not certain they could actually build a genuine sports car and have it still feel like a Jaguar.

            Except for the XJ220 of course…

    @ 2:50 he’s passing a GMT800. That seems out of place.
