2016 Jaguar F-Type R AWD Review: 550 HP of Surprise Road Test: I knew it would be good, but I never realized the baddest of the cats would be this fun.

The 2016 Jaguar F-Type R AWD has been on my gotta-drive-it radar for some time without much traction being made toward getting the keys to one. I’ve been lucky, and some car makers have given me some awesome time on the track and off with some pretty incredible cars. But, since TickTickVroom isn’t the biggest or most recognized of car sites, finagling the opportunity to be handed the keys to a 550 hp, six-figured sports...

The Jaguar F-Type: What Do We Know So Far?

In a few days, Jaguar will officially unveil the F-Type.  This car has been the most hotly anticipated new model out of Jaguar’s Coventry headquarters in a long time.  With phrases like “worthy successor to the E-Type” and “Porsche 911 level performance” being bandied about, the Jaguar F-Type has a lot to live up to.  So, since speculation and rumor are half the fun of new car models, I thought I’d...

2014 Jaguar F-Type

Jaguar’s Teaser Photo of the Brand’s F-Type 2014 is going to be a good year for cars.  The C7 Corvette, the Audi R5 and the new Land Rover Defender are all expected to hit showrooms as 2014s.  But, the car that is possibly the most anticipated (other than maybe the Corvette) is the forthcoming Jaguar F-Type.  Fans of the brand and fans of cars in general have soft spot in their hearts for the famed Jaguar E-Type of yore. ...

It’s actually a fairly unique offering from Stuttgart for a few reasons. For one thing it doesn’t exactly look like anything else that bears the three-pointed star. Yeah, it has the Mercedes-Benz nose, but that’s pretty much where it...

6 Best Car Commercials from the Past 6 Decades: Evolution of Ads

Ah, car commercials. They’re the way car makers introduce us to their latest offerings… to the latest and greatest innovations in automotive design, technology and, well, bull-hockey. They’re also how car companies tell us which cars were supposed to covet above all others and why. I mean, how else are we supposed to know that Chevrolet is the Heartbeat of America or that Ford wants us to Drive One to Go Further? If...

Horsepower to Reindeer Power Conversion

Back for the holidays is the TickTickVroom.com exclusive Horsepower to Reindeer Power conversion. Of all the methods of transport that exist, it must be argued that Santa Claus’s sleigh and eight flying reindeer rank among the coolest and fastest out there (He does make it around the world in one night including several stops, after all).  So, with Christmas and Santa’s annual trek coming up on Wednesday, it got me...

Jaguar C-X17 Concept: An SUV for the Leaping Cat Enthusiast [Video]

What happens when you give the designers from Jaguar (who have recently created some of the most beautiful cars to ever come out of the UK) access to the sport-ute engineering from Land Rover and tell them to go make a Jaguar SUV?  Well, you get the Jaguar C-X17 Concept. I’d never thought I’d ever say this… ever, but let me tell you about Jaguar’s SUV concept.  First off, it’s not really 100 percent SUV. ...
