A New Star Makes its Debut

The unveiling of the Jaguar F TYPE Coupe was not as much of a surprise (since we knew the manufacturer would eventually come out with it) as was the actual unveiling ceremony at Raleigh Studios in Playa Vista on Tuesday, November 19, 2013. The sports car made its world debut in Los Angeles, perfectly appropriate as it really wants to become a star. Yes, it’s gorgeous and it’s definitely a star… in our eyes. It’s the way it looks and the way it moves.

The media and VIP [Miranda Kerr, Kelly Osbourne, Joe Manganiello, Nicholas Hoult] event took place in a historic Culver City hangar building where the genial Howard Hughes designed and built many of his creations, including the H-4 Hercules flying boat (aka Spruce Goose). You could almost feel his ghost and those of other stars like Rita Hayworth, Ava Gardner, Audrey Hepburn, Jane Russell and Jean Peters who roamed the structure before. Besides the excellent canapés and drinks, the production of the show was tres dramatic and gave the crowd in attendance something to remember. We invite you to watch the video.

The Jaguar F TYPE Coupe is not a car you need but a car you want. It’s rather dynamic, especially the R version which boasts 550 horsepower, hits 60 MPH in 4 seconds and tops out at 186 MPH. We asked its designer Ian Callum if he drove the car back in England. “Of course,” was his answer. “It’s a lot of car. You know we make powerful cars at Jaguar,” he said with a smirk on his face. All the rest of us will have to wait until next spring to receive this object of desire.
