Hi thinking of changing cars after a wonderful 3 years anyone experienced a f type-r I know there faster and sound fantastic
And still look great….I have driven a Sport 400 and loved it so the R must turn that up to 10. A very different car to the GT and more chuckable on your favourite twisty road I would say. Drive one and see what you think….Some will say that it isn’t a special as the GT but on looks alone for me they are owning….What’s not to like two seats, pretty, pretty body and a V8….Hi thinking of changing cars after a wonderful 3 years anyone experienced a f type-r I know there faster and sound fantastic
Agree with that but they are still a great looking car which just shows how wonderful the GranTurismo is. The thing is the F Type is still a production car so if I wait for my ten year old GranTurismo to fall apart I will be able to pick up a relatively fresh used F Type - the 450PS V8 would do - to see out the ICE car phase of life.They look good on the road to me but RG had one and next to the GTSs he had in stock it was dull IMO. Interior not special. Answer is probably to drive one, usually different in reality....
+1I see them all the time as there is a JLR showroom by my office. And I have to say they do nothing for me looks wise.
The top of the range one with all it's pops and bangs just strikes me as it is trying too hard.
I'm sure they're great to drive, but it's just not for me.
The XKR is a wonderful-looking car, and ageing extremely well. In fact, all XKs are ageing well. Looks-wise, at least. I'd say it's more elegant than the F-type, but serves a different market. With the exception of Ben, I'd imagine most F-type owners to be young, virile, good-looking, suave debonnaire and pretty **** sophisticated (but not as much as Vantage owners). XK owners much the same + 3-4 decades. ;-)I see F types only occasionally and usually think oooh what’s that car? Oh, only a Jag.
Quite by chance my 80 year old Dad has just come home swooning over an XK-R he saw in town. Parked closed by was an F type convertible which he thought looked ugly.
I guess it’s horses for courses again.
