The Jaguar F-Type is slinking its way into vastly divergent corners of the celebrity world. Lana del Rey is its songstress, Englishman-playing-American-terrorist Damien Lewis lead its cinematic debut in Desire, San Francisco quarterback Colin Kaepernick gets the athletic endorsement, and now it's just been driven behind the "Adults Only" doors at the Playboy Mansion: Raquel Pomplun was gifted a year's use of an F-Type for being named 2013 Playmate of the Year.

There's a video below of Pomplun and her F-Type getting 'camera ready,' and a press release below that in case you want to, you know, "read the article."

Hugh M. Hefner Names Raquel Pomplun Playboy Magazine's 2013 Playmate Of The Year

Chula Vista, California Native is the First Mexican American to Receive the Magazine's Iconic Title


LOS ANGELES, May 9, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --Playboy Founder Hugh M. Hefner named Raquel Pomplun, 25, the magazine's 2013 Playmate of the Year during an exclusive cocktail luncheon today on the garden grounds of the iconic Playboy Mansion. Raquel, a 25-year-old Latina beauty from Chula Vista, California, is Playboy's first Mexican American Playmate of the Year.

Raquel is featured on the cover of Playboy's June 2013 issue and inside the magazine in a stunning, 8-page pictorial by renowned fashion photographer Michael Bernard (issue on newsstands and on i.Playboy.com Friday, May 17, with additional photos available at www.playboy.com/pmoy2013 ). Along with her title, Raquel will receive $100,000 in prize money and a one-year lease on a 2014 Jaguar F-TYPE, the newest addition to the Jaguar line up. The all-new 2014 Jaguar F-TYPE convertible sports car is the first new two-seater sports car from the brand since the iconic E-Type was launched over 50 years ago, and is on sale this month in showrooms across the US.

"I can't begin to describe how excited I am to receive this honor and be given the opportunity to represent Playboy as its first Mexican American Playmate of the Year," said Raquel. "Playboy has taught me a side of myself I didn't know before. It's been a year of wonderful surprises!"

The Latina stunner first appeared on the cover of Playboy's April 2012 Sex & Music issue alongside Grammy-award winning musician Bruno Mars, and was featured inside as the magazine's April 2012 Playmate of the Month. Raquel studied biochemistry at Southwestern College, and is classically trained in ballet. She currently hosts Blackbelt TV's Rockin' Rounds, and is also the cohost of Playboy Radio's Playmates Present.

Raquel is Playboy's 54th Playmate of the Year. Playboy named its first Playmate of the Year, Ellen Stratton, in 1960.

      Id be perfectly happy if either one (or both) showed up at my house. Though honestly I could probably afford the Jaguar easier.

      I'd like to give her an F-Type.

      OK, I like the car, and her dress! Can I have both?

      She only gets use of the car for a year. Wow,Hef is getting cheap.They used to give the car to the PMOY to keep. Maybe its because Hef's daughter Christy is running the empire now.The Pink 68 AMX that the 68 PMOY got is being restored.

      Fisker traded cars for free press too, ( while Tesla Motors drinks their milkshakes.) doesn't really work in the long run. ;)

      Nice of Jaguar to swoop so low to sell some cars. Respect lost.

        I believe Playboy is paying for a one year lease on a new car that happens to be the new Jag. Don't think Jaguar has anything vested in this.

          Yeah, "vi_per owner wannabe" doesn't get it. This is the magazine's deal, not the car company. Even so, he still doesn't get it, or get any.

      I have to congratulate the male species and Hugh Hefner. After decades of efforts, we have successfully transformed women's perception of stripping nude and spreading eagle for us from one of shame and disgust into one of pride and honor. Well done gents, well done.

        Hugh Hefner is creepy. Everytime I see his wrinkled old self in the bathrobe and diapers pawing some girl young enough to be his great, great grand-daughter I want to call the police.

      Still not a 60's E-type. The car has to be the sex object... not the pin-up girl next to it. I don't care for Jaguar trying to sell this as the "next" classic... because it still looks like a beefed Miata with a (better rear-end)... or did they just copy the BMW's Z8? It is not an iconic shape, look, or even oddity. A very "meh" car focused on the past.

        It's been a really LONG time since you've been with a sexy girl, hasn't it? That's OK, now go have a beer.

        vi_per boy, say all the little things you need to say to get yourself through your little day, OK dear? You're the one trolling around talking smack about cars you have no clue about. So have at it. Cheers!
