Jaguar has teamed up with Ridley Scott, Homeland star Damian Lewis and indie favourite Shannyn Sossamon to produce a new short film for its upcoming F-Type roadster.
Teased in a new trailer released this week, the film focuses on Clark, a man who delivers cars for a living. Clark soon runs into trouble "after a chance encounter with a mysterious young woman in the middle of a lawless desert".
Taking a leaf from BMW's popular series The Hire (link opens in new window), starring Clive Owen, the true star of this new film is Jaguar's F-Type roadster, bound for Australia later this year.
The F-Type will be available with three supercharged engines - two V6s in 250kW and 280kW trim, and a V8 kicking out 365kW and 625Nm of twist.
The 'slowest' F-Type rockets to 100km/h in 5.1 seconds while the V8 promises a 4.2 second time.
All will come with the eight-speed automatic, no manual transmission is planned.
The F-Type's aluminium chassis is claimed to be 30 percent stiffer than anything else offered by Jaguar, which bodes well for the handling.
Australian pricing is still to be revealed, but we expect the F-Type to start at around $150,000.
