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...

Bremont Jaguar Watch for Lightweight E-Type to Debut at Pebble

A few months ago, we told you about the plans Jaguar has to finish the eighteen car run of Lightweight Aluminum E-Types begun in 1963 by building the final six that didn’t make it into production the first time around. Those cars (video and photo gallery below) are going to debut on Thursday in Pebble Beach at the Concours D’Elegance.  However, what we didn’t know last May was that joining the mega-rare Jaguar XKE in its...

Old Top Gear Looks at Porsche 968, Mazda RX-7, Mitsubishi 3000GT and Jaguar XJS

Nothing makes the the evolution of automotive performance more obvious than watching grainy, VHS episodes of the original, old Top Gear, like the ones below from 1992 and 1993.  Viewing an afro-coiffed Jeremy Clarkson wax poetically about the virtues of a car from the early 1990s is enough to make you run to your garage and hug your daily driver.   On old Top Gear, cars with acceleration from 0 to 60 mph in the 5s (i.e. Mazda...

Jaguar to Finish Six Aluminum Lightweight E-Type Coupes

Many believe the acme of automotive design was reached when the Jaguar E-Type (aka XKE) hit dealers in 1961.  And, they’re not wrong.  Inch-for-inch… Curve-for-curve… Cylinder-for-cylinder, there has yet to be a more beautiful, stirring or soulful car.  This is even more true when you look at the very rare aluminum Lightweight E-Type from 1963.  Sure, there are some that are, perhaps, as stunning (the new Aston...

2013 Year in Review… Cliche, Isn’t It…

So, not only did we survive December 21st, 2012, we’ve made it all the way through 2013.  HA!  Take that Mayans!  Now that it’s 2014 (2014, weird, isn’t it?), I thought I’d do the most cliché thing blog-ily possible.  This is a TickTickVroom.com 2013 Year in Review post.   2013 was a banner year for TTV… a new, fancy-schmancy website, a bunch of cool road and track tests (sooooo much fun) and some...

Jaguar and Playboy Throw a Party

Yeah.  I had to read it twice too.  The most British of British brands, Jaguar hosting a party and VIP drive with Playboy Magazine.  The jokes almost write themselves.  So… many… puns… But, this is a family blog, so I will behave myself.  Apparently, however, Jaguar and Playboy have more in common than an affinity for leopard print. I know I’m a bit late in writing about this particular event.  I was on...

Jaguar, the 2013 Mille Miglia and a Short Film [Video]

It almost feels a little bit like showing off.  Ooh, look a me.  I’m Jaguar and I have all of these gorgeous vintage, rare and antique Jags, and I’m going to have very lucky people drive them in the Mille Miglia through the scenic and pristine Italian countryside.  Then, I’ll make a video of it. Okay, fine… I’m a bit jealous.  But, this is still a gorgeous video of gorgeous cars driving the world’s...
