The Jaguar F-Type R is a sports car made by Jaguar in the Asphalt series. The Jaguar F-Type R is the replacement of the Jaguar XKR.
The definitive sports car – F-TYPE R. Powered by Jaguar’s incredible 5.0 V8 550PS Supercharged engine with 680Nm of torque for sheer unadulterated performance that is 100 percent exploitable – 0-100km/h in 4.2 seconds (0-60mph in 4.0 seconds), best-in-class power and torque as well as best power-to-weight and torque-to-weight. F-TYPE R takes full advantage of the Coupe's extremely rigid bodyshell. - Jaguar's Official Website
The Jaguar F-Type R is one of only two Jaguar vehicles in Asphalt 8, with the other being the Jaguar C-X75. Since the Enduro Update there are another 2 Jaguars added to the game. Prior to Decals Update both pre-Enduro Update Jaguars were Premium Cars, meaning they couldn't be purchased with Credits or Tokens. The F-Type R was only obtainable from the Aero Premium Pack, alongside the SSC Ultimate Aero XT, for an extremely high price. Currently both Jaguars and the SSC Ultimate Aero XT can be bought with Tokens.
The Jaguar F-Type R has a starting rank of 1192 that reaches up to a maximum of 1382 (one point above the Maserati GranTurismo Sport from Class B), and a final rank of 1500, effectively making it one of the most powerful Class C cars in the game.
The Jaguar F-Type R has its advantages in acceleration (though only when the acceleration is upgraded) and top speed. It has one of the highest top speeds of any Class C car in the game. However, the nitro boost is very weak and inefficient, hampering the acceleration. Also, with a moderate handling stat, caution is best advised on difficult tracks like Monaco and Dubai. This got even worse with the introduction of cars like the Felino cB7, meaning the F-Type R is no longer in the top 100 spots of leaderboards that involve Class C cars.
