As with many automakers, Jaguar also has a special driver training program dubbed the Jaguar Performance Driving Academy. These driving academies always attract a wide range of people wanting to test out the latest and greatest sports cars and supercars.

Most recently, the Jaguar Performance Driving Academy headed to the Circuit of the Americas with the potent Jaguar F-Type R Coupe. Among the participants was actor Sebastian Stan as well as actress Mena Suvari.

As the current range-topping F-Type, the R Coupe is quite exceptional. It features a supercharged 5.0-liter V8 engine producing an insane 550 hp. Consequently, Jaguar promises the F-Type R Coupé can sprint from 0-100 km/h in just 4.2 seconds, 80-120 km/h in a mere 2.4 seconds and an electronically limited top speed of 300 km/h.

The supercharged engine powering the Jaguar F-Type R Coupé not only produces immense power, it also has a few nice features up its sleeve including spray-guided direction injection as well as dual independent variable cam timing. The lightweight aluminium block has then been stiffened with cast-iron liners and cross-bolted main bearing caps. Just like all other F-Type Coupé and Convertible variants, the engine is mated to a ZF Quickshift eight-speed transmission driving the rear wheels.
