3. Jaguar F-Type R AWD

Base Price: $105,400

Ladies and Gentlemen, we are entering the big leagues now. As we pass the $100,000 mark with our all-wheel drive convertible collection, we will encounter some very special vehicles. The 2017 Jaguar F-Type R AWD Convertible is one of these. It is a very powerful, very capable, very sexy car.

Here we have a 2-seater all-wheel drive sports car with a folding fabric top and 550 supercharged V8 horsepower. The seductive curves of the F-Type R AWD Convertible’s body are a modern update of the original classic Jaguar XK-E of the 1960s. This cat growls through its active sport exhaust with quad exhaust pipes at the rear. Zero to 60 arrives in just 3.9 seconds. Fast enough for you?

The 2017 Jaguar F-Type R AWD Convertible’s body-hugging performance seats covered in twin needle-stitched high quality leather keep you in place during enthusiastic driving. Torque vectoring feeds the power to the right wheel at the right time, getting you around corners quickly and safely. Jaguar’s super performance braking system and sport suspension with adaptive dynamics give you the confidence to point this car toward the horizon and just keep going, whatever the conditions happen to be.
