Jaguar F-Type Convertible

Jaguar F-Type Convertible

Jaguar F-Type Convertible (5.0L V8 Supercharger 8-speed Automatic)

The 2014 Jaguar F-Type V8 S is serenity's nemesis, a car so unapologetically loud that you wonder how it can possibly be legal. The 495-horsepower supercharged 5.0-liter V8 expresses itself with an angry, metallic wail that reverberates throughout the mountainscape.

The F-Type may be the destructor of serenity, but it's thoroughly intoxicating, and that's with the standard exhaust setting engaged. Press the little button on the center console and it only gets louder and nuttier.

It does, sprinting from zero to 60 mph in 3.9 seconds (3.6 seconds with 1 foot of rollout as on a drag strip) and through the quarter-mile in 11.9 seconds at 118.9 mph. That's 0.8 second quicker to 60 than our equally priced long-term Porsche 911 Cabriolet and a half-second quicker than the Mercedes-Benz SL550.

the Jaguar F-Type V8 S is one hell of a toy. It's uproariously fast, looks like nothing else on the road and most definitely scares the bejeezus out of the mountaintop.
