2013 Jaguar F Type
Jaguar is working up a short film to coincide with the US debut of the company's new F-Type. Desire will feature actor Damian Lewis in the lead role opposite Jordi Molla as the main villain in the story. The whole of the action will take place against the picturesque backdrop of the Chilean desert with filming starting early next month. According to Jaguar, the story will follow Lewis as he plays Clark, a man who delivers cars for living. Things get exciting when he crosses paths with a young wo
We already know that the 2013 Jaguar F-Type will be ditching the rotary shifter used in current Jaguar models, but Autocar is reporting that the F-Type will also be setting another trend in the British automaker's lineup by introducing a new manual transmission. In addition to the F-Type, this gearbox could also make its way into the XF.
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
Porsche's heart lives in the rear end of the 911. The heart of Mercedes-Benz resides more in the brand values of the Three-Pointed Star than any one model. Mini is defined by petite packages wrapped in giant amounts of sass. Since the end of the Series III XJ in 1992, however, what has represented the unique and irreducible definition of Jaguar?
Jaguar has laid down a price tag on its sultry new aluminum-chassis'd convertible, the 2013 F-Type. Buyers looking to bring one of the sports cars home will face down an MSRP of $69,000 (*plus a $875 destination fee). That price tag includes a supercharged 3.0-liter V6 engine good for 340 horsepower mated to an eight-speed ZF paddleshift automatic. Step up to the $81,000* F-Type S, and the same engine serves up an additional 40 horsepower, active exhaust, a mechanical limited-slip differential,

Just last week, we got our first look at what appears to be the production-ready 2013 Jaguar F-Type courtesy of a single leaked image, and now we can see even more of the new Jaguar thanks to a handful of new pictures from Autoweek.nl. The new shots show the droptop from all angles and, just as importantly, they give us our first look at the interior.
The first test the Jaguar F-Type has to pass will be administered at the Paris Motor Show, and while we've seen its skin, we still can't say for sure what's under it. After that, when drivers get behind the wheel, the examinations get a lot harder. Ten-hour-per-day cramming sessions have been held at the Nardo test circuit and, again, the Nürburgring to tweak performance aspects like handling at VMax, cooling, track DSC and the e-diff.
The car you see above, ladies and gentlemen, appears to be a leaked image of the Jaguar F-Type. It will get its official debut at the 2012 Paris Motor Show in a little more than a week, but this lone image was posted to Facebook by well-known spy photographer Chris Doane with the following caption: "Something interesting just popped up in my inbox..."
How can you not be excited to see Jaguar getting back into the sports car business with a modern-day interpretation of the classic E-Type? Well, there is that one little issue with the F-Type powertrain that Jag announced during the Beijing Motor Show. In this day and age, a 380-horsepower V6 just doesn't cut it, supercharged or not. At least not when Mustangs are packing 662 horses.
