Jaguar F-Type R

Jaguar just revealed plans to unveil "an exciting design study" at the upcoming Goodwood Festival of Speed set to take place at the end of this week. According to the first details we have on it, the model will be based on the F-Type roadster and will be driven up the Goodwood Hill by the company’s Chief Engineer, Vehicle Integrity, Mike Cross.

While these were all the official details revealed by Jaguar, we presume that this will be some kind of preview for the upcoming F-Type R version ; or even better, the previously rumored 700-horsepower F-Type R-S.

It is also worthy of note that this could simply be the debut of the F-Type Coupe . However, we don’t think that Jaguar would make a huge fuss over attaching a fixed-top roof to the F-Type. Also pointing to this being the R or R-S variant is the fact that Jag will put on display three other R and R-S variants of other models, including: XFR-S , XJR and XKR-S GT .

We’ll find out soon enough!

As you likely already know, Chris Harris is certainly one of the best in the biz at video reviews various sports and super cars. Well, Mr. Harris is at it again with this latest video (above).

Harris put face to face three of the greatest drop-top sports cars out there. The list includes a Jaguar F-Type V8 S , an Aston V8 Vantage Roadster and a Porsche 911 Carrera S Convertible . In total the three sports cars develop a total of 1,315 horsepower (495 for the F-Type, 420 for the Vantage and 400 for the Carrera S).

Just the cars alone make the 24-minute-long video enticing, but getting to watch Chris beat the daylights out of them around whatever random track he happens to be on today. Needless to say, there is plenty of drifting going on and lots of beautiful engine noise.

So, which one does Chris prefer? Well, we’re not going to spoil the surprise for you; you’ll have to watch the video yourself.

Jaguar F-Type Coupe

Just yesterday the upcoming Jaguar F-Type Coupe was caught testing at the Nürburgring racetrack. Now, British magazine AutoExpress is offering us some awesome news. Apparently, Jaguar is developing a 700-horsepower R-S version of theF-Type Coupe .

According to a Jaguar insider, the company has developed an F-Type R-S with over 700 horsepower that will do over 200 mph. The new version will add a more aggressive design language and will be offered in the company’s French Racing Blue paint scheme reserved for models like the XKR-S.

In order to achieve these monstrous figures, Auto Express believes the F-Type R-S will likely borrow some of the technology used in the 900-horsepower C-X75 hybrid supercar. Translated, it could mean that the model will combine a turbocharged and supercharged 1.6-liter petrol engine with multiple electric motors to reach its 700-horsepower goal.

We respectfully disagree with the British magazine’s opinion, as we just can’t see Jag taking one of the most awesome-sounding cars in its lineup and installing a boosted, small-displacement engine. We are willing to bet that the R-S variant would use a finely tuned variant of the existing 5.0-liter V-8. Possibly a larger supercharger and some ECU recalibration to release the extra 205 horsepower needed to hit the 700-pony mark.

If these reports are not just hyperbole, we don’t expect to see the F-Type R-S until at least 2016.

Jaguar F-Type Coupe

Last month, the hard-top version of the new F-Type was caught testing for the first time and today, our spy photographers caught it testing again. This time around, they caught it screaming around the Nürburgring. According to them, the F-Type Coupe was out for just some quick laps before it vanished again.

As no surprise, the new coupe version will remain basically identical to its roadster brother, except, of course, the hard top. The F-Type Coupe will borrow a lot of its exterior design from the C-X16 Concept , which was sexy in its own right.

Under its hood, the F-Type Coupe will keep the same engine lineup as the convertible variant, including a 3.0-liter supercharged V-6 in the F-Type and F-Type S models and a 5.0-liter supercharged V-8 in the F-Type V8 S version. Depending on the model, the F-Type Coupe will deliver anywhere between 340 to 495 horsepower.

We expect the Jaguar F-Type Coupe to hit the market in 2014.

The fact that thenew Jaguar F-Type is enjoying great success shouldn’t be such a big surprise to anyone. This was all expected, considering how well the model was received on the market.

In a recent interview with Automotive News, global brand director, Adrian Hallmark, revealed that half of the 2013’s production units are already sold and that the customers who have ordered the car now will get it by the end of the year. He also announced that F-Type sales represent a total of 15 to 20 percent of the total 60,000 Jaguar units planned to be sold this year and that the sports car will be used to boost to brand’s image.

Jaguar is hopping that more than 90 percent of the F-Type buyers to be new clients to the brand because the car has no direct predecessor. With the F-Type, the company is also hoping to attract younger buyers, from markets like United States, the UK and Germany.

Jaguar F-Type Coupe

Just the other days, the F-Type Coupe was revealed in a series of leaked patent drawings . Today the car was finally caught testing for the first time and, according to our spy photographers, it was pretty difficult to obtain the shots.

To no one’s surprise, there were tons of security guys around the area, so getting the picture required some war tactics, as our spy photographers hid in the cargo area of his SUV and he was forced to shoot through the tinted windows. This is why we have no clear photos showing the rear angle, but were still happy to see that Jaguar is finally testing the nextF-Type Coupe .

Just like with the Roadster version , the Coupe will be offered in two V-6 versions and one V-8, but as previously reported, it may also get some R and R-S versions sometime in the future.

We expect the Jaguar F-Type Coupe to hit the market sometime in 2014.

Jaguar announced its intentions to release a coupe version of the F-Type once the roadster version hit the market. Until now, however, the car has never been spotted testing anywhere around the world, so we had to just trust Jaguar’s word.

Today, we can add some substance to Jag’s claim, as leaked patent drawings of the F-Type Coupe have made their way onto the Internet and they reveal the final design of the sports coupe. Not that it’s very hard to imagine how an F-Type Coupe would look like, since you are essentially slapping a fixed roof on top of the F-Type Roadster . Reports point toward everything else being borrowed from the roadster version, including the exterior look and the engine lineup.

The F-Type Coupe will arrive on the market sometime in 2014 and will be followed by a more powerful R version. A Sport Brake version has also been rumored, but we doubt we are ever going to see it.

As promised today, April 24th, Jaguar has dropped its long awaited "Desire" - a movie that tells the story of Clark, played by actor Damian Lewis, and features the all-new F-Type .

Clark is a man who delivers cars for a living and gets into trouble after encountering a mysterious, young woman (Shannyn Sossamon) in the middle of the desert. But could it be that simple? Apparently not because in the desert nothing is simple!

The stars of this short movie are: Golden Globe winner Damian Lewis, Shannyn Sossamon and Jordi Mollà. The music is played by BRIT award winner Lana Del Rey. In fact, the F-Type also stared in one of Del Rey’s previously launched clips: "Burning Desire."

The highly anticipated short film was shown for the first time at London’s The O2, after the festival’s opening press conference, which attracted media from all over the world. You can enjoy the video above.
