Jay Leno’s clout in the auto industry is well established. That’s one of the perks of being a certified car enthusiast but in the comedian’s case, automakers trip over themselves to get featured in his own auto web show series, Jay Leno’s Garage.
Recently, Jaguar took its turn and it brought along its latest pride and joy, the Jaguar F-Type V8 S. Eric Johnson, vice president of Jaguar Western Region, presented the car to Leno and true to the script, the pair began by talking about the car before Leno does what he seemingly always does: take the F-Type V8 S for a spin. Obviously, a car of the F-Type V8 S’ stature deserves to have some kind of special attention given to it and Leno was quick to point out how impressed he was with its 5.0-liter V-8 engine that produces 495 horsepower and 460 pound-feet of torque.
In addition to the F-Type V-8 S, the episode also featured Leno’s drive of another one of Jaguar’s recent builds: the Project 7 Concept. Like we said, this guy really gets all the treats, doesn’t he?

Back in January, Jaguar announced that its new F-Type sports roadster would be featured in a new video called “Desire,” which is set to be released later this spring. Now the sports car is once again featured in a video, but this time around it is a trailer for a film named “Desire” video.
After these two teasers, we are excited to finally see the full “Desire” film, which was created in collaboration with Ridley Scott Associates.
The film obviously takes place in the desert, where the main character – Clark, played by actor Damian Lewis – delivers cars for a living. He gets into trouble after encountering a mysterious, young woman (Shannyn Sossamon) in the middle of the desert. Alongside them, the video will also star Jordi Moll and music by BRIT award winner Lana Del Rey.
Two days before the official debut of the 2013 Jaguar F-Type, someone has finally let that luscious and much-anticipated cat out of the bag. Just last week, the first leaked image of the Jaguar was revealed and, now, TeamSpeed has broken the embargo and unveiled the first multiple images of the upcoming sports roadster.
As expected, the next F-Type features a very aggressive look with a number of design elements inspired by the C-X16 Concept. The most obvious, borrowed features are the split air intakes on the front end and the long bonnet.
The 2013 Jaguar F-Type will be offered with a choice of three engines: Jaguar’s all-new 3.0-liter supercharged V6 engine with an output of either 340 or 380 HP and the existing supercharged 5.0-liter V8 engine for the R version. All engine options will drive the rear wheels through an eight-speed transmission and will be equipped with Stop/Start technology.
Stay tuned for the official debut of the 2013 F-Type on September 27th at the 2012 Paris Auto Show.
