2014 Jaguar F-Type

Pretty bad ass car. Two V6 models(340 and 380hp), and one V8(495hp). All supercharged and have the ZF 8 speed auto. All of them sound mean as hell.

Don't know why BMW can't get the sound right with their cars and everyone else seems to have figured out active exhaust.

If you like powerslides watch the first link.

Sounds great. There are a lot of other cars I would rather drive at that price point, but it's still a great car in and of itself if we're ignoring value.

I'm having a serious internal debate about the V8 S or a fully loaded Cayman S as my next ride.

The new F type is just gorgeous. The V6S or V8S would make fantastic second cars IMHO.

Once they give it three pedals, I am interested. Nice P-car alternative.

Offer a stripped down gt3 type that weights 200lbs less with a manual and a 400hp version of the V6 or an NA v8 for under $75k. That would have me going.

Very nice looking, but too many other cars I'd buy instead for the $.
