I have the V6S 380bhp. I did consider the V8 but in real world driving I did not see that it would be any better. More bhp but more weight. The V6 is vey good, nice looking, good cabin especially with performance seats & 20" alloys. The exhaust is amazing either quiet or loud combined with the supercharger whine.
Used mine for the first time in 6 months Ctek fed but started first press of the button. You should try both before deciding.

Some contributions from a few years ago

I've since driven the V8 and the V6 380. The V8 is fantastic for putting a massive Clarksonesque grin on your face but I wouldn't want to own one. The bigger bhp V6 is very nice but I couldn't have one instead of a 911.

I have one and it is very nice, V8 R with AWD. The exhaust sound it addictive. The car is so beautiful it hurts. No down sides really, even the MPG isn't bad.

When you floor it, the car hunkers down on its haunches and leaps forwards ( very cat like) Smile


Gets a lot of attention from everyone. Also, its a Jag, so you get a kinda patriotic feeling when you drive it Smile

Very Happy Very good!
Swapped my 997.1 C4S for F-Type V6S and am happy with the Jag, attracts more attention than the Porsche ever did and its all positive Thumb
Check out Manchester/ Cheshire meet posts for piccy's .
Did consider V8 but V6S is sweet spot IMHO.
Get one Thumb

A mate had one, A V6S.

Oddly one thing which got on his nerves was the sports exhaust- no option to turn it quiet at start up, as he sometimes found the rather contrived REV crackle-crackle racket a bit cringey and embarrassing, not to mention annoying when he left early in the morning for work. I think this has been fixed in the latest models.

...agree Mark...my sister in law was contemplating this only last month, tried the jag but way too noisy and flashy (her grown up kids said that they would not be seen in it!)

I frankly wouldn't be seen dead in one...

She has just taken delivery of a new BMW z4 which like a Boxster (which she tried) is classy and understated...
