A brand new Jaguar F-Type R Coupe was photographed in Dubai, less than three weeks after the car made its public debut at the Los Angeles Auto Show.

Not only was it the range-topping R version of the F-Type Coupe, but the car also came with the optional carbon ceramic matrix (CCM) brakes which have lowered the vehicle's weight by 46 lbs (21 kg). The flaming red F-Type R Coupe has a starting price of 85,000 GBP in UK and is offered exclusively with an 8-speed Quickshift gearbox.

Its heart and soul is a 5.0-liter V8 supercharged engine borrowed from the XKR-S and XFR-S which in this application develops 550 HP (404 kW) and 501 lb-ft (680 Nm). The 2014 Jaguar F-Type R Coupe needs only 4 seconds to reach 60 mph (96 km/h) and will keep on accelerating until the electronic limiter will kick in at 186 mph (300 km/h).
