2015 Jaguar F-Type R Coupe

How alive are you?” asks the ad for the 2015 Jaguar F-Type R Coupe. My answer: Not very, since at the moment I’m typing on a computer while listening to smooth jazz and occasionally treating myself to a peanut M&M. But you know what would change that in a hurry? Going 0 to 60 in 4.0 seconds.

The hardtop version of Jaguar’s F-Type roadster is here with the same throaty 5.0-liter, 550-hp supercharged V8 engine. For $99,000 you also get a top speed of 186 mph, which, yeah, probably also would max out the ol’ Alive Meter. It’s not all just speed either, as the suspension features adaptive dynamics that promise to react to the car’s movements and adjust on-the-fly. And an already stiff suspension can get even stiffer in the F-Type R’s Dynamic Mode, which lets drivers adjust the steering, shift schedule, and the engine’s throttle response. Sounds like you can fly on the roads and stay comfy enough to enjoy smooth jazz and M&M’s. Now that’s what you call alive.
