Jaguar F-Type R Coupe

The new F-Type Coupe made its world debut at the 2013 Los Angeles Auto Show, and the biggest surprise was the addition of a new R version . As the model was powered by the same V-8 engine used in cars like the XKR-S everyone believed that this will be in fact the alternative to the rumored F-Type Coupe R-S .

Well, that’s not true. During the show, Jaguar design director Ian Callum hinted that the new F-Type Coupe will get at least two additional versions, including the more powerful R-S and a track-focused version, just like the XKR-S GT .

According to Callum, "We now have a well balanced model cycle plan for each car, upward, downwards and sideways. With the F-type, the R-S is one of those possibilities." We are not very sure if this can be considered a confirmation, but during the summer it was rumored that the F-Type Coupe R-S will deliver about 700 horsepower. If this will really happen, then the R-S will easily pass the 200 mph barrier.

He did not offered any details on when the two models will arrive, but he did confirm there will be a one-year break between the launches.

Jaguar prepared a nice little surprise for us for this year’s Los Angeles Auto Show .

We all knew Jag was going to unveil the coupe version of the recently launched F-Type , but the company decided to also offer a more powerful R version for those customers interested in a little bit more than just the base sports coupe.

The new F-Type R Coupe is offered as almost the coupe equivalent to the F-Type V8 S Roadster , but with a more powerful engine, a more aggressive look, an updated suspension, high-performance brakes and a revised interior. All this for just $99,000, which will make it a tough competitor in its segment.

Jaguar will distinguish the new F-Type R Coupe from the rest of the lineup by adding more aggressive bodywork, lots of carbon fiber, plus "R" logos placed on the grille and on the back end.

The new F-Type R Coupe will be put on sale in March 2014.

Shortly after Jaguar released the F-Type roadster, Design Director, Ian Callum, revealed that a coupe version would follow it. After testing it for a few months, Jaguar finally unveiled it at the 2013 Los Angeles Auto Show.

As no surprise, the new F-Type Coupe is nearly identical to the roadster version, except, of course, the fixed roof. There are a few changes regarding the engine lineup, as the base F-Type will only be offered with a V-6 engine — standard and supercharged, while the V-8 engine is offered only in the new, R version.

The new F-Type Coupe will be put on sale in early 2014, and prices will range from $65,000 for the base F-Type Coupe to $77,000 for the F-Type S Coupe. Unlike the Roadster version, the new coupe variant will also get a R version priced at $99,000.

Over the past couple of years, Jaguar’s design overhaul has yielded some pretty impressive models and it’s worth noting that the company’s promise to reinvent itself as a sharper and edgier brand has turned into a resounding success.

With new models like the F-Type Roadster , and concepts like the C-X16 and Project 7 , the British brand has been on some kind of roll lately.

Continuing on the "C-X" nomenclature, Jag is gearing up for its latest concept offering, which will be shown at the 2013 Frankfurt Auto Show. It’s been dubbed the C-X17 Concept, and it previews the company’s first-ever five-door crossover. The concept will also preview a highly-advanced modular aluminum architecture set to be put into production in 2015 with the company’s new sedan.

If you’re not antsy to get behind the wheel of any version of the Jaguar F-Type, we ask you to please hand your "Car Nut" card over to the gentleman at the front desk, and go check out TMZ for a bit. It is particularly hard to fathom any car junkie not being enthralled by the V8 S version of Jag ’s latest sports car .

Well, in the latest episode of "Ignition," Carlos Lago got his chance behind the wheel of the mighty Jaguar F-Type V8 S and pushed it to its limits on the roads of Malibu, California, on the dyno and every other way we can think of testing it.

As expected, Lago had a blast behind the wheel of the V8 S, but he did say that he thinks the supercharged V-6 models are better sports cars, but that the V8 S was more of a mixture of sport and muscle. We think that’s a fair assessment, but we’ll take raw muscle over grace any day of the week.

Check out the video to see exactly what Carlos thinks the F-Type V8 S and whether it is suited to pick up where the legendary E-Type left off.

Jaguar USA took the XJ luxury sedan to one of the coldest towns on Earth: Yukon, Canada. Along with the dangerously low temperatures, this territory also has some of the planet’s most treacherous roads. In this town, temperatures plummeted to an incredible -32° F, so you can only imagine the driving conditions here. However, for the XJ these conditions were quite easy to handle, and Jag highlighted the entire trip in the above video.

As a reminder, the XJ is offered with four powerful and refined engines, with power ranging from 275 horsepower in the 3.0-liter, V-6 diesel engine and up to 470 horsepower in the 5.0-liter, V-8 gas engine. Prices range from $76,700 in the base version, but it can go up to $112,600 in the Supersport version.

Check out this video to see how the Jaguar XJ handles its 2,000-mile round trip journey to the coldest city on Earth.

The current-generation Jaguar XJ was unveiled in 2011 and since then, Jaguar hasn’t updated the sedan. This is all about to change very soon, as for the 2014 model year, Jag is planning a small revision for the XJ.

Our spy photographers managed to catch the first prototype 2015 XJ out for a testing session in the UK , and as you can see, it will feature only minor updates on the front and rear.

As you can see, only the front and the rear of the revised XJ are camouflaged, meaning that we will see a new front and rear bumper, plus a smaller grille. Rumors suggest that we will see a few updates on the inside and some minor changes under the hood, which will decrease fuel consumption.

We expect the revised Jaguar XJ to be unveiled sometime in early 2014, with Jaguar putting it on sale later that year.

We are pretty sure you already know this, but Chris Harris is by far one of the luckiest guys on Earth, and his latest video shows exactly why. The 2014 Jaguar XKR-S GT is limited to only 30 units, with the possibility of a production increase to 50 units, if the demand is high enough. So you can imagine that having the chance to see one is pretty rare, and driving one... Ha, forget about it!

However, in the latest episode of Drive Jag invited Harris to test the $174,000 XKR-S GT. Despite the rainy weather, Harris had a lot of fun driving this special Jaguar around the Nurburgring, as he usual does. You shouldn’t be surprised to hear that Harris was quite impressed by this sports car , even though he found the six-speed automatic gearbox a little outdated.

For those that want to see more of Chris Harris, you can see him whipping the Ferrari F12 Berlinetta and the Alfa Romeo 4C.

Jaguar XF

We’ve known for quite some time now that Jaguar has been hard at work on the next-gen XF . Despite the knowledge, this is the first time we’ve had the chance to catch a mule of the new XF — basically a current XF with the new drivetrain and chassis underneath — testing. Our spy photographers managed to catch this powertrain and chassis mule somewhere outside the Jaguar test center at Nürburgring .

The next XF will offer some major updates over the current model. First and foremost, it will move to a modular, aluminum platform that Jag is calling the iQ(Al) — the same platform also sees use under the BMW 3 Series . This change will make the new XF a lot lighter than the current model, which will make it more nimble and improve its fuel economy.

Under the hood, the engine lineup will range from a brand-new four-cylinder engine to a powerful V-8. The new platform is optimized for all-wheel drive, so we expect to see more AWD Jaguars in the future.

The new XF is expected to be revealed as a concept in 2015 with the production car to arrive in 2016.
