If you've found yourself on the fence between a 2013 Jaguar F-Type powered by a supercharged V6 or the model with a more potent supercharged V8, we have just the thing for you. Jaguar has worked up a quick 30-second video with little more than audio from the two convertibles. On the first pass, viewers get an earful of that blown 3.0-liter V6 at full whine, though there's no telling whether the machine packs 340 horsepower or the 380 hp found in the middle-child F-Type S. Either way, there's no denying just how potent the newest member of the Jaguar family sounds.

And then there's that supercharged 5.0-liter V8 with its 495 horses. At wide-open throttle, the machine sounds like it's hell-bent on sucking down the world one yellow line at a time. Check it out in Jag's video below. Just make sure you turn up the volume.

      Can't hear the supercharger on either of them, and the second clip was a mix of both engines...

      Why is it clearly the V6 in both clips when it passes the camera? For the V8 clip, it's like they mixed the two. Anybody else hear that?

        Definitely. Car commercials are the worst at showing what a car sounds like.

      Too bad about the automatic. Slurred shifts just ruin both of them for me.

        Don't worry, the manual 6-spd is coming next year. But clearly you haven't driven a recent Jaguar with their 8-speed ZF automatics. Nothing slurred about them. Keep in mind that automatics outsell manuals 9:1 in the U.S.

      I think I like the V6 a little better.

      Audio for exhausts is always terrible, especially in dyno videos and commercials
