5. Jaguar F-Type R Coupe
Like the Corvette, Jaguar’s new F-Type Coupe is a sports car done right. This kitty is beautifully designed inside and out and its performance pushes all the right buttons, especially in R guise. But looking the part will only get you so far, you’ve got to back it up with substance.
Accordingly, this car features a thundering 5.0-liter V8 that’s augmented by a belt-driven atmosphere multiplier. The mechanical respirator helps it put out 550 hp and 502 lb-ft of torque, almost 100 more ponies than the frighteningly fast Vette.

The F-Type R Coupe looks right and knows how to dance but it can also sing. She’s a triple-threat! The exhaust burbles and rumbles, pops and snorts like artillery going off in the distance. Put it in Dynamic Mode and the car is magically uncorked and you wonder, “Did I just get transferred to the front line?” Even lesser models with the supercharged V6 engine are shockingly loud.
