Enter, the Jaguar F-Type Coupe. The sultry hardtop Jag just made its live world debut at the LA Auto Show. Outside, it has the front and back end of the F-Type, albeit with a hardtop and panoramic glass roof. It’s prettier and sleeker than the convertible F-Type, and it has us longing for the driver’s seat.
Under the hood is a monster supercharged 5.0-liter V8 with 550 horsepower. If you’re looking for something a bit more on the subtle side, you can opt for a 3.0-liter supercharged V6 with 380 horsepower.
With the V8, 60 mph is managed in an impressive 4.0 seconds, on its way to a respectable top speed of 171 mph. Price for the top-range F-Type R will set you back $99,000. The rest of the lineup includes the standard supercharged V6 coupe, and the slightly more potent S Coupe. These models are priced $65,000 and $77,000, respectively.
The coupe should go on sale near the beginning of 2014.
