2014 Jaguar F-type: Finally, an E-type Successor! [Ignition Episode 65]
On this episode of Ignition, Kim Reynolds heads to Pamplona, Spain to have a look at some of Jaguar’s classic entries in the sports car realm, and also to get his hands on their latest convertible sports car, the F-Type.
The F-type has an all-aluminum body and a new all-aluminum, 3.0-liter supercharged direct-injection V-6 based on the 5.0-liter V-8, with balance shafts, a dual independent variable cam timing system, and a Roots-type twin vortex supercharger mounted in the engine’s vee.
Jaguar has given us three different versions, the V6, V6S, and V8s, to play with, so we’re taking them out to the mountains of Spain to see which one best represents Jaguar’s new spiritual E-type successor.

2013 Audi RS5 “Pissed-Off Stormtrooper” by OSS Designs and Vossen
Created with a little help from Vossen Wheels, which described the RS5 Coupe’s angry looks as a “pissed off stormtrooper” in a nod to the white-clad elite soldiers of the Galactic Empire from the Star Wars movies, the Audi features a makeover that starts with the front end and OSS Designs’ colorful LEDs that surround the factory lights.
The smoked headlamp lenses and the gloss-black finish between the lights and the grille, complete the front-end updates. The tune continues with custom side skirts, wider rear fenders with vents, rear diffuser and bumper, plus a ducktail rear spoiler integrated into the boot, which supposedly works with the RS5’s stock retractable rear spoiler. The 20-inch Vossen VVSCC5 concave alloy wheels complete the look.
