When it comes to performance, these two vehicles deliver outstanding capabilities that put them comfortably among the world’s elite sports cars. By many measures, though, the output of the 2017 Jaguar F-TYPE is superior to the competition. Pop the hood of the Jaguar F-TYPE, and you’ll find a supercharged 5.0L V8 engine that pumps out a robust 575 hp and 516 lb-ft of torque. It comes with standard with all-wheel drive and an eight-speed QuickShift ZF® automatic transmission.
Meanwhile, the 2017 Audi R8 gets a 5.2L V10 engine that delivers a comparable 610 hp but a noticeably lower 398 lb-ft of torque. This model also gets all-wheel drive, while the transmission is a seven-speed automated manual.
If you’d like to enjoy immense luxury alongside superior performance, the 2017 Jaguar F-TYPE and the 2017 Audi R8 both deliver in very different ways. No matter which vehicle you choose, you’ll get leather seats, satellite radio, Bluetooth, and a large touchscreen interface. However, the 2017 Jaguar F-TYPE features power adjustable seatbacks that recline electronically, while the 2017 Audi R8 5.2 V10 Plus gets fixed seatbacks that don’t even recline manually.
In addition, the 2017 Jaguar F-TYPE comes standard with a premium 12-speaker Meridian stereo system with a subwoofer. The Audi R8 only gets a basic five-speaker stereo system. The Audi model can be purchased with power adjustable seats and a larger premium brand stereo system, but only for significantly more money.
Despite some of the 2017 Jaguar F-TYPE’s clear advantages, it’s still markedly less expensive than the 2017 Audi R8.
