    The goodbye
     
    What a week it’s been! Late night drives, early morning tail-out action and one quick out-of-town getaway, the F-type R Coupé’s seen it all. That it’s lived through without breaking my back and also without any dinks to its underbody speaks volumes about its suspension and ground clearance, and correspondingly, the Jag’s relative suitability to India. It’s one of the main reasons you should consider one over many of the other sportscars available in India.

    But to me, the biggest draw here is that this car has soul. It doesn’t feel clinically perfect like the others of its breed and gives you ample room to play around. It trades precision for good old driver involvement and hence scores really, really big on that all-important fun factor. And so, the F-type Coupé R’s gorgeousness is not just skin deep.  But if the Rs 1.91 crore (ex-showroom, Mumbai) price tag for the R seems too exorbitant, Jaguar also sells the coupé with hugely capable V6 engines and far lower price tags. Just don’t expect them to feel quite as epic.
