Launched: The Jaguar F-TYPE Coupé

Given a choice, I’d pick a dog for a pet over a cat anytime.
I like myself lean, but my pets chubby. The ideal of a plump puppy enthusiastically greeting me upon my arrival home and doleful eyes watching over me in the house certainly appeals.

Felines are not my thing, but I allow an exception to this preference of mine when it comes to Jaguars.

Sleek, smooth and sensual. I was referring to the vehicle by the way.

Jaguar Land Rover (Malaysia) Sdn Bhd, the exclusive importer of Jaguar and Land Rover vehicles in Malaysia has launched the new all-aluminium Jaguar F-Type Coupé and it is gorgeous.
Drool-worthy enough for me to take time off work to be in the showroom of the launch; that’s it.

For a person who imagines microwave foils when aluminium is mentioned, I am amazed to learn that the cold press aluminium used in the F-type is not only as stong as steel, it makes the car lighter and hence, as nimble as its namesake.
This material also have the benefit of reducing the amount of joints and panels which accentuates it’s beautiful, sleek profile.

And it’s not all just looks and no show. The top-of-the-line 550hp F-type R Coupe has a 5.0litre supercharged engine that makes me see the speed meter in three digits in just 4.2 seconds from standstill.
If you feel the road tax is insanely high, there’s an S Coupe that makes do with a 3.0litre supercharged that’s no less potent in delivering 380hp and hitting 100km from standstill in 4.9 seconds.

The F-type is loaded with a lot more technology that makes it a vehicle that not only looks fantastic, it is amazing to drive.
The only thing I didn’t quite like is because the seats are slung so low, anyone with skirts will be in a compromised position, particularly when alighting.
Still, I’m not going to complain if anything offers to drive me around in one. This is one Cat that I’ll be sure to keep!

BELOW: What do you do when you get to sit inside a Jaguar? Well, grin like a cat of course. 😀
