Earlier than it was redesigned for the 2021 mannequin 12 months, the Jaguar F-Sort was one of many best-looking automobiles in the marketplace. The identical could be mentioned for the up to date model. What additionally hasn’t modified is the truth that, whereas it appears to be like nice, it sounds even higher. Because of a supercharged V8 that makes 575 horsepower, the growl of the F-Sort could be heard lengthy earlier than you see it coming. Oh, it’ll flip heads. It’s additionally fairly a little bit of enjoyable to drive too. And Omaze is giving one away.
Right here’s what we considered the F-Sort once we first drove it last summer:
“Being behind the wheel of the V8-powered F-Sort R additionally stays an absolute hoot. You sit low within the cockpit, looking over the lengthy hood — we couldn’t see the tip of it with out elevating the seat up a smidge. The spherical steering wheel is giant for a sports car, and whereas the leather-based is supple and grippy, it was robust to discover a place the place our arms had been comfy and our fingers might attain the clicky steel paddle shifters. Two seat sorts can be found on F-Sort fashions, however the extra aggressive “Efficiency” seats come commonplace on the R. They’re loads bolstered, however broad sufficient to not be limiting on longer journeys.
“The supercharged V8 fires up with a loud snarl, however a brand new Quiet Begin mode can tone it down by closing the valves within the exhaust at startup. Your next-door neighbors will respect this characteristic, because the F-Sort R is without doubt one of the loudest automobiles with a manufacturing unit exhaust we’ve ever examined. The engine and exhaust dominate the expertise of the automobile from begin to end. Quantity ranges vary from extraordinarily loud to how the hell is that this authorized?
“Jaguar claims 60 mph is available in simply 3.5 seconds, so acceleration inside the velocity limits is short-lived. This engine’s nature, the way in which it makes energy, is essentially the most alluring a part of the acceleration. You don’t have to attend that cut up second for a pair turbos to spin up. The facility is just right here, and there’s zero disconnect between your proper foot and the Jag bounding ahead. Don’t shift earlier than max horsepower comes on at 6,500 rpm, both, as the sensation of ahead thrust simply will get stronger the extra you wind it out. The immediacy of this powertrain’s response and the savage noises exiting out these 4 pipes make the F-Sort R top-of-the-line right-pedal-stomping experiences on the planet.”
