Video: The New Jaguar F-Type R Coupe Prays to the Gods of Noise and Tire Smoke

If your coffee maker is broken and you are looking for a great way to start your day, why not click play and allow the roaring V-8 of the new Jaguar F-Type R Coupe to wake you up.

In this video from EVO, they take a look at Jaguar’s newest sports car to see if its worth a buy over competitors from Porsche or Audi . At least that was the plan. What you actually get is five minutes of drifting and British lunacy that turns our host into a giggling mess. God it looks fun.

Toward the end of the video we do get some real impressions about how this car compares to its rivals, and it seems the F-Type R may be the perfect enthusiast car. No, it wont drive as precisely as the Porsche 911 , and it likely wont beat many of its rivals around a racetrack, but it is the king of backroad fun and sexy looks. What more do you really need than that?

If I had that 550 horsepower, 5.0-liter supercharged V-8 turning those rear tires into a lovely symphony of grey clouds and deafening noise, I would want for nothing else in the world (except for a clutch pedal, obviously).

Crank the volume, hit play and enjoy.
