2017 Jaguar F-TYPE R Convertible
After an 18-year hiatus, BMW has revived the 8 Series name with the BMW Concept 8 Series. The automaker's new flagship model could help the manufacturer compete against Mercedes-Benz, which overtook BMW last year as the world's largest luxury automaker.
Given that the 21st century has seen a sort of return to the roots aspect for the Mustang, it was probably only a matter of time before the Boss 302 made a return. Over the last few years there's been steady and growing interest in the concept of a new-age Trans Am Special.

The Jaguar F-Type has been called the spiritual successor to the legendary E-type. It brings an excitement back to Jaguar that had been missing for some time. This nicely optioned 2017 R model convertible cranks that up even further with a supercharged 550hp engine and all-wheel drive, not to mention an exhaust growl that is a real attention getter. And it is all wrapped around a luxurious interior that stays true to the old English marque.
This example is finished in brilliant Polaris White. It is nicely contrasted by the black power convertible top that features one-touch operation; you can go top-down in a few seconds without removing your seatbelt. The optional 5-spoke 20” wheels with carbon fiber blades are in excellent condition and have been fitted with Pirelli P-Zero tires (255/35 front, 295/30 rear). There are also power retracting exterior mirrors and door handles.
The F-Type R drivetrain is where things heat up. It starts with a 5.0L supercharged V8 that is factory rated at 550hp. It has an extraordinary exhaust note as well. This is mated to an 8-speed QuickShift ZF automatic transmission and a full-time AWD setup. The result is good for 0-60 mph in 4.0 seconds and a top speed of 186 mph. Jaguar’s Adaptive Dynamics system provides excellent stability by adjusting damper rates up to 500 times per second based on driver input and vehicle attitude. To slow things down, this example has the Super Performance braking package with its distinctive red calipers.
The fabulous interior is the definition of sport luxury. It features the extended leather package done in black with red stitching along with well bolstered bucket seats. There are all the features you would expect from such a car; dual climate control, heated seats, heated steering wheel, color touch screen, navigation, backup camera, paddle shifters, and so much more. You also get the trick power retracting center dash vents and a Meridian sound system. The car includes a set of all-weather floor mats along with the factory carpeted mats.
This F-Type R convertible is a world class car. All this performance and luxury did not come cheap with an original sticker price of $115k ($108k base plus options). But despite only 29k miles and a clean Autocheck report you can own this impressive, clean car for nearly half that price. And have a great time in the process.
