It's An X-Rated, Hard Core Monster for the Terminally Unhinged
 
...or so says Jeremy Clarkson.


New ride. I didn't realize I would miss having a sports car but I really did. Traded in the Challenger for this...2015 F-Type S, 20,000 miles, CPO, nearly fully loaded. This is for you Spence!

Congrats! Striking cars. Wife wants one but I'm not willing to go back to work to get her one.

Bring that monster to Rosa's and let's get some proper photos!

Nice looking ride. I like the color, too.:seasix:

I've driven my daddy's Jag. I like this one a LOT better.

BTW...it is a Supercharged V6...380hp. I looked at the R model. 550hp V8 and it was just too much car. This one is so well balanced and the sound...my God.

Niiice.

lspencer534 02-15-2018 2:06pm

That's technically a 2015 F-Type S. 380 HP, 0-60 in 4.3 sec., 19 City/27 Highway (you'll get better). It's the best handling, quietest, best exhaust note, and plushest interior around. Oil filters are almost $30, but you can go 7,500 miles between changes. Most quick-change places don't have the correct filter, but the German-made filter sold by Jaguar is better.

Congratulations!

Damn that is a great looking car! :seasix:

I thought you might be a fan!

Nice car, Mike. In a land of cars that often look similar, the Jag does not. :seasix:

A lady here in Chatsworth I know has one. She also said the V8 was just too much. So, you did well too.

Challenger to F-Type is a heckuva upgrade. :seasix:

Don't get me wrong...the SRT was a GREAT car. Never a problem, fast as blazes, comfortable, and truth be told, light years ahead of the Jag in terms of infotainment. I'm just really not a muscle car guy anymore. I just had to get it out of my system.

I REALLY loved the last gen XKR, but the interior was just too stodgy. And it was all old tech. Otherwise I'd have gotten one.

snide 02-15-2018 3:50pm

Very nice, Mike. I love the looks of the F-Type. I'd buy one over a C7 any day of the week, however, I don't fit in either. :(

Enjoy your new ride! :thumbs::thumbs:

:cheers:
