The British brand used Raleigh Studios in Playa Vista, California, as a stage for the launch of the new car, where celebrities and VIP guests were treated to a visual display of the F-Type R Coupe at full throttle.
In attendance were Simon Cowell, Miranda Kerr, Nicholas Hoult, Joe Manganiello, Kelly Osbourne, David Gandy, Yasmin Mills and Jodie Kidd among others.

The night was led by Jaguar’s director of design, Ian Callum, who said: ‘Creating a sports coupe is the purest of design tasks and also the most challenging; get it right and aesthetically the result will be as dynamic as the car should be rewarding to drive. In F-Type Coupe, I believe we’ve got it right.
‘The dramatic debut of the 542bhp F-Type R Coupe in Los Angeles this evening – possibly the most dynamic reveal of a car ever – underlines its performance credentials.’
