The E-Type was unveiled in March of 1961 at the Geneva Motor Show, following the famous 11th hour disorder (one of
the cars was driven to the show from England with just hours to spare). The car was an immediate sensation: its
specification was state of the art, its bodywork arrestingly gorgeous, and the price surprisingly affordable. It
embodied William Lyons values beautifully and it is no surprise that the E-Type has become such a legendary part of
automotive history. The specification clearly demonstrated Jaguars racing experience and included independent
suspension all around (at a time when Ferrari was still using live rear axles), disc brakes all around (inboard at
the rear to reduce unsprung weight), and of course Jaguars legendary twin cam inline-6. The cars were continuously
developed, however, the arrival of the twelve cylinder engine changed the cars character irreversibly. The Series
II cars featured a host of changes to modernize the car, including larger lights and many changes introduced on the
Series 1.5 cars including Stromberg carburetors and safer interiors. While lacking the purity of the early cars,
they provide substantially the same experience and are dramatically less expensive, generally about half the price
of a comparable Series I.

aluminum radiator. The car is generally FANTASTICALLY smooth in operation. The transmission is in good order with

Automakers conduct driver training programs on racing circuits around the world for a variety of participants: journalists, customers, even celebrities. And at a recent session of the Jaguar Performance Driving Academy at the Circuit of the Americas in Austin, Texas, the Leaping Cat marque had a couple of the Hollywood types in the paddock.
In addition to the various (evidently well-heeled) members of the public, learning how to pilot the new F-Type Coupe R on the track this time around were actors Sebastian Stan and Mena Suvari. You might recognize Stan from his roll as Bucky Barnes in the Captain America movies and Suvari from such red, white and blue favorites as American Beauty and the American Pie franchise, but both got a first-hand taste of one of Britain's finest courtesy of Jaguar.
So how did it go? Well, as one of the less-famous participants put it, it was #awesomesauce." We couldn't possibly reproduce in words her enthusiasm in person and on camera, so you'll just have to watch the video below to see for yourself.
Forget Tawny Kitaen. If you want to make a Jaguar XJ rock, just do what this guy did: stuff a heavily modified and turbocharged General Motors V8 under the hood, and take it to the track.
The video calls this Series 1 XJ a sleeper, but with its open exhaust and obvious turbo whistle, the once-gentlemanly sedan is anything but. The owner says that the engine is GM LQ9 V8 that has been stroked to 402 cubic inches putting out around 720 horsepower with 12 pounds of boost (in standard form, this 6.0-liter V8 was used in the second-gen Cadillac Escalade). Check out the video below to see what that kind of power does for this classic Jaguar in the eighth-mile.
With the recent increase in higher-performance versions of already high-performance vehicles, like Mercedes-Benz and its AMG Black Series, the public is now gaining even greater access to speed and maneuverability. Two of the most recent sports cars to get their wicks turned up include the Jaguar XKR-S GT and the Aston Martin V12 Vantage S.
Both of these cars are the pinnacles of their lines, with the Jag lording over the XKR-S, XKR and XK while the Aston rules over the standard V8 Vantage S and V8 Vantage. Motor Trend has opted to pit the two rivals together for some thorough testing, and it just happened to bring along a few video cameras to capture all the action.
There's nearly 19 minutes of super hot sports car action below, so scroll down and enjoy.
