What is the most fun car you've ever driven?
In short, the best car I have ever driven is in the cover photo of this article. It is the menacing Jaguar F-Type SVR. With a supercharged V8, four wheel drive and a sub 4 second 0-100 time, it is a lightning quick cat but was it the most fun car I've ever driven? No! I was a very inexperienced track driver when I was given the chance to throw one of these around the track so I spent most of the lap trying not to crash and the other issue is that the F-Type SVR is an incredibly quick car and it was too quick for me to enjoy it. I know it sounds weird but I'll tell you I'm not crazy, simply inexperienced. Being a track novice didn't help my cause either!
The title of the most fun car I've ever driven has to go to that Jaguar XE 300 sitting next to the SVR in the photo above. It shook a little if you pushed it over 150kph but the handling was sublime and it wasn't too quick so I could actually focus on attacking the track rather than being scared of coming under attack from the SVR's savage acceleration. So the title of the most fun car I've ever driven has to go to the Jaguar XE 300 Sport.
Looks like I really value handling in a car but everyone has their own idea of what a fun car is so I want to know what makes a car fun for you?
