VIDEO: AutoGuide Drives the Jaguar F-Type

Jaguar resurrects its sports car heritage
by Colum Wood

I hereby nominate the Jaguar F-Type for best sounding engine of the year!

Somewhere amid sharp elevation changes on the circuitous roads around Mount Rainier in Washington State I approach a tunnel entrance that appears almost like a natural part of the landscape. Cutting through the mountainside, large stones frame the black abyss inside, the fresh asphalt leading to the inevitable.

I drop into 3rd and lay on the throttle.

The sport exhaust, equipped as standard on the mid-level 380 hp supercharged V6 engine, revs up freely with instantaneous reaction from the paddle-shifted 8-speed automatic while simultaneously delivering a flatulent bruuump similar to what youíll hear in an AMG.

Top down, the glorious and sophisticated exhaust note penetrates my inner ear and goose bumps quickly run up my forearms.

Perhaps itís the sudden chill from inside the mountain. My body tells me itís something more.

Driving the F-Type is an emotional experience.
