2006 Jaguar S Type R at Sports Car Shop in Eugene, Oregon

New Years Day I took a trip down to the Sports Car Shop in Eugene. My close friend Paul works there and the owner, Bob, approached me about pictures that they needed for a couple of the incoming cars. One of the cars is a 2006 Jaguar S Type R:

I’m a ‘prosumer’ quality photographer with only a little gear in my bag. But considering the equipment, I’m okay with how these turned out. Especially this close up of the leaping cat and Jag badge. I made wallpapers out of these in 1680 and 1152 resolutions:

This is quite a striking car in person. I didn’t get any seat time in the car, but the specs speak for themselves: (Edmunds.com)

The standard engine is a supercharged 4.2-liter V8 rated at 400 horsepower. A six-speed automatic transmission sends the power to the rear wheels. Performance is exemplary, with a 0-to-60 time of just 5.3 seconds, according to Jaguar, and an electronically limited top speed of 155 mph.

I’ll be going back down to shoot outdoors later this week. I’ll get details then regarding price, miles, etc… Stay tuned!
