American music producer and DJ Mark Kinchen "MK" has curated a soundtrack inspired by the launch of the significantly refreshed 2021 Jaguar F-Pace. The playlist was created as a tie-in for the Faces of Jaguar marketing campaign that just launched.

Additionally, Jaguar has collaborated with MK to debut his newest track, "Lies", which can be heard across the latest F-Pace campaign. The tie-in is part of a larger partnership with Sony Music UK 4th Floor Creative that aims to showcase emerging talent and the importance of creativity.

"It's been a lot of fun working with Jaguar," MK said. "I've always been a car guy and love all aspects of design – I studied architecture before I got into music. I'm excited for everyone to see the commercial, and to hear my new song." MK is a Detroit, Michigan native, like DJ D-Nice, who recently was featured in a Ford commercial featuring the redesigned 2021 F-150.

The Spotify track list includes music by Ron Costa, Wheats, Earth n Days, Chez Daimer, Eli Brown, and more. The music can be listened to wherever Spotify streams best for you.

In addition to MK, the F-Pace campaign features multiple artists from a number of different genres including music, entertainment, photography, and fashion.

"We know that music has been particularly important for our customers during this challenging time, so we are really excited to be working with MK and Sony Music UK's 4th Floor Creative for the launch of the new F-PACE," said Andy Hunt Cooke, Jaguar Global Communications. "With a philosophy that is focused first and foremost on design, we recognize how important culture and creativity is the wider community and are grateful we can provide this platform for showcasing true talent."

Jaguar hasn't just tweaked the F-Pace here and there for the 2021 model year. They've substantially upgraded the entire model, from front to back and most everything in between. The high-performance F-Pace SVR keeps most of the interior and exterior changes from the traditional F-Pace design and combines them with its tried and true 550-horsepower, supercharged 5.0-liter V8 engine.

James Bond and British vehicles go together like bread and butter. The spy's most well-known rides come from Aston Martin, but Land Rover isn't sitting out on the action. The 25th film in the Bond series, No Time To Die, premiers in just a few weeks, and with it, a new special edition Land Rover Defender. Land Rover's SV Bespoke division created the special Defender, which in addition to making an appearance on the silver screen, will be on sale for a limited run to 300 lucky Bond fans willing to shell out the cash.

The villainous Defender is powered by a supercharged 5.0-liter V8 that produces 518 horsepower and 461 pound-feet of torque. An eight-speed automatic transmission is standard, and Land Rover says the powertrain is strong enough to push the hefty off-roader to 60 mph from a stop in just 5.1 seconds. The V8 is a recent addition to the Defender line, and comes paired here with unique suspension and transmission tuning, bespoke spring and damper rates, and a new electronic active rear differential.

Unique touches to the 007 Defender include "Defender 007" treadplates, special infotainment animations, and "007" exterior puddle lamps. The interior will get a laser-etched detail plate to denote its number among the 300 vehicles. No Time To Die will feature the Defender front and center, but it's not the only Land Rover in the film. Two Range Rover Sport SVR SUVs will also make an appearance, along with a Range Rover Classic and a Land Rover Series III.

If you're more interested in seeing the Defender's time on screen than you are in getting behind the wheel, it hits theaters in the U.S. starting on October 8, 2021. The film will be the fifth and final movie to feature Daniel Craig as Bond. However, if you're really excited about the Defender, get ready to pay up.

Two new versions of the Jaguar F-Type are on the horizon. New versions of the model have been created to further the car's luxury proposition and both are powered by a roaring V8 engine. The new P450 variants replace the P300 and P380 models currently in the lineup. Jaguar is keeping the F-Type R around.

2022 Jaguar F-Type P450

The 2022 Jaguar F-Type P450 will be available as a coupe or convertible in P450 RWD or P450 R-DYNAMIC AWD grades. All varieties come with a 444-horsepower supercharged V8 under the hood that achieves 428 pound-feet of torque. An electronic active differential is standard.

In a nod to its suburban buyers, the F-Type has a Quiet Star mode that allows a more subtle roar out the back side of the car upon startup. Drivers who don't care about keeping quiet can switch the car in to Dynamic mode and let the rumble out.

Each F-Type P450 rides on 20-inch wheels, has larger brakes than traditional F-Type models, and has the switchable exhaust. Double J-Blade daytime running lights feature up front while new slender rear lights allow the body of the car to speak for itself.

Buyers who get the F-Type P450 R-Dynamic AWD get bespoke badging; a gloss black front splitter, side sills, valance, and venturi; auto-dimming, power- folding, heated door mirrors with memory; and 20-inch Style 6003, split-spoke, gloss Dark Grey with Contrast Diamond Turned Finish Wheels.

Monogram stitch patterns on the car's seats and interior accents in Windsor Leather and satin-finish Noble Chrome enhance the interior. Additionally, there are "Jaguar Est.1935" markings on the center console finisher, glovebox release button surround, and seatbelt guides. Six-way electric power seats are standard on F-Type P450 RWD, while F-Type P450 R-Dynamic AWD adds 12-way electric memory front seats, electrically adjustable steering column with memory, Delta Aluminum Center Console, and R-Dynamic branded metal treadplates as standard equipment.

A 12.3-inch driver information display is standard.

2022 Jaguar F-Type R

The F-Type R is the pinnacle of the Jaguar lineup with torque on-demand all-wheel drive, Jaguar Intelligent Driveline Dynamics control technology, a double wishbone front and rear suspension, and electric power-assisted steering.

It can get from zero to 60 mph in 3.5 seconds and has an electronically limited top speed of 186 mph thanks to its 575-horsepower supercharged V8 engine. All-wheel drive is standard.
