Edmunds' long-term 2015 Jaguar F-Type R Coupe is loud. Real loud. You might even call it obnoxious. For the most part, the editors love this about the new Jag.

  • This is actually my least favorite trait of the F-Type. Don't get me wrong, I LOVE that Jag went all out with this car's aural character. It's extremely refreshing that someone built a sports car that actually sounds like one. Having said that, it isn't my cup of tea for a daily driver. For a weekend plaything? Sign me up.
  • Couldn't agree more, @mercedesfan. As a weekend car, the over-the-top personality is fantastic, entertaining, and a joy. That probably wouldn't be the case on a daily basis or extended road trip though. That goes double for the exhaust note. I love the noise as much as the next car guy, but not as a constant companion on the highway, or in city centers where it reaches the ears of many as nothing more than noise pollution.
  • To me the truly great exhausts are the ones that are reasonably quiet when driving regularly and then let you know when you've stepped on it. I'm not a fan of a car making a racket when it isn't really moving or for that matter even telegraphing to the world that I'm pulling out of a parking lot a bit faster than usual.

    I'm not familiar with the "loud exhaust" button this Jag is equipped with but if it gives over-the-top-always-talking when on and more-like-a-normal-sports-car when off, it sounds like it was made just for me. There are times when I want to hear
    E V E R Y T H I N G , and times when I don't - like Mike's example of 5am in the apartment parking lot. (Great post, Mike!)
