PHOENIX -- It's everything a luxury sports car should be -- the 2014 F-Type Jaguar. Jim Prueter of AAA Arizona brought one by for 3TV's resident car aficionado, Scott Pasmore, to play with.

"This thing feels really good," Pasmore said from behind the wheel.

"This is the car," Prueter said. "This is a parade of eye candy -- inside and out. They've done everything right on this car. ... I don't think I've driven a car that I've enjoyed more, really, and I drive a lot of cars.

"If you've got the money, you couldn't spend a hundred grand better for a car than this one," he continued. "I just love this car. ... This just might be the AAA car of the year."

Pasmore, pretty much in love with the car, agreed with a favorite quote from "Ferris Bueller's Day Off" about a 1961 Ferrari 250GT California.

"If you have the means, I highly suggest you pick one up," he said to April Warnecke.

  • F-Type (340hp, 3.0 liter V6) -- From $69,000
  • F-Type S (380 hp, 3.0 liter V6) -- From $81,000
  • F-Type V8 S (495 hp, 5.0 liter V8) -- From $92,000 (This is what Prueter brought.)
