First Drive: Jaguar F-Type V8 S

GTSpirit just had a first drive with the Jaguar F-Type V8 S. Click the link below to read more.

Quote:
The Jaguar F-Type V8 S is the top model of a launch range that includes the Jaguar F-Type V6 and Jaguar F-Type V6 S. We’ve explored the other two models in depth already. Our final day with the F-Type focused on the V8 S. It promises more of the excellent dynamics coupled with unrivaled atmosphere. It is the first true sports car to leave the Jaguar factory in almost 40 years.

Here is a another first drive review by Autoblog.

Quote:
If you're not an enthusiast with some appreciation for the marque's history, it's a bit odd to hear Jaguar executives proclaim that they are a sportscar company and always have been. By their reckoning, the 2014 F-Type seen here is in fact a return to form, a Rip Van Winkled brand pillar reanimated and reimagined to take center stage.

Jalopnik has their review out. It reviews are flooding in today. And so far, everything sounds good.

The embargo on reviews of the all-new 2014 Jaguar F-Type lifted last night and so the web is teeming with takes on Jaguar's first proper two-seat sports car in decades. And guess what? It turns out it's pretty great.

Found something really scary in that article...

In addition, one of the pre-production models died during the drive. Because Jaguar.
^ that will now have me questioning Reliability and build quality on the Jaguar F-Type.

Hoepfully those problems are only on the pre-production models and non-exsistant on production models.
