2015 Jaguar F-Type S Coupe - Four Seasons Introduction

Miles to Date: 3,800

Mike FloydwriterRobert Guiophotographer

Don't be shy, 2015 Jaguar F-Type Coupe, we just want to play. We've got an endless supply of 91 octane milk for you. We're eager to hear that crackling supercharged six of yours roar while prowling the concrete jungle.

We're absolutely thrilled to adopt a 2015 Jaguar F-Type S Coupe and have it curl up in our Four Seasons garage for a year. The F-Type has been a critical hit, a shimmering halo for the storied British brand that has turned its fortunes around. We dug the F-Type roadster so much we named it a 2014 All-Star. We're looking forward to learning how the coupe holds up as the miles pile up.

This particular F-Type hardtop features Jaguar's supercharged, 3.0-liter V-6 with 380 horsepower, mated to the ZF-sourced 8-speed automatic, and retails for $77,925 with destination. It checked in at our L.A. HQ already house-broken with roughly 3,800 miles on the odometer, looking sharp with its Rhodium Silver coat ($600) and blacked-out 19-inch Centrifuge alloys ($1,500).

The base 2015 Jaguar F-Type S already comes well equipped, as we'd expect for a car that starts at nearly 80 grand, but buyers need to open their wallets wider for the really good stuff. Our car rolled in with three major optional equipment packages. The priciest, called Performance Pack S ($3,400), bundles upgraded brakes with the selectable active exhaust, a configurable dynamic mode, and interior updates including a flat-bottom steering wheel, performance seats, and black trim accents. Safety-focused Vision Pack 2 ($2,400) includes adaptive front lighting, blind spot monitoring, front parking sensors, and a rear-view camera. Premium Pack 2 ($1,800) nets 14-way power seats, dual-zone climate control, and a garage door opener. Add heated seats and steering wheel ($600), HD and Sirius radio ($400), a panoramic glass roof ($1,200), and a snazzy-looking Redzone leather interior getup with jet black stitching ($2,700), and this coupe finally rings the register at $92,575.

While we're looking forward to our extended seat time in the 2015 Jaguar F-Type coupe, we already have a pretty good idea what this car is about. We've been enamored from the get-go with a scintillating shape that evokes Jaguar's storied heritage in a thoroughly modern way. Its soundtrack is unlike that of any modern sports car, and we've found it more than capable dynamically. We'll be sure to share with you what else we learn about the cool-cat coupe -- and how it holds up to daily hammering -- during its stay in the Four Seasons pen.
