This is, of course, a rendering, but we have to admit the F-Type Coupe does have a proper death machine appearance. The image, which comes via carwow, doesn’t seem to miss any detail, with these guys also giving a Skoda Octavia and a Nissan Qashqai a similar treatment.
Speaking of the little things, the way in which Fury Road pays a nod to the Dune Series, which is nothing short of a festival of details, is one of the aspects I enjoyed most about the movie.
It all starts up front, where the rendering beats Jaguar Land Rover’s SVO division to developing a supercharger upgrade for the sportscar. And while the F-Type sounds brilliant even when animated by a V6, imagine this one has a free-flow exhaust in the spirit of Max’s original Interceptor.
A 50-cal machine gun, harpoons and other instruments of driving torture complete the landscape.
Thanks to the fact that I enjoy this rendering, I’m somehow glad this car wasn’t used in the movie. And that’s because my greatest gripe with Fury Road and the series in general (excepting the original) is that the Interceptor gets killed off almost immediately after the action kicks off.
PS: since this F-Type comes with a more generous ground clearance, as well as with offroad-ready wheels and tires, it could just as well serve as a Jaguar F-Pace.
