(MAHWAH, N.J.) – August 17, 2013 – Last evening, Jaguar held an exclusive, private cocktail reception with Playboy Magazine, for the second consecutive year, to celebrate the Pebble Beach Automotive Weekend. The invitation-only Jaguar Playboy event celebrated the auto maker’s high-performance models, the 2014 F-TYPE, the XJR sports sedan and the limited production, ultra-track ready and street legal XKR-S GT, at a beautiful private estate in Pebble Beach, Calif.

Actress and model, Gal Gadot, attended the reception and DJ/violinist duo Mia Moretti and Caitlin Moe provided the soundtrack for the evening. Andy Goss, President, Jaguar Land Rover North America, and Jaguar’s Head of Advanced Design, Julian Thomson, hosted notable guests including Cooper Hefner and the 2013 Playmate of the Year, Raquel Pomplun.

“The Pebble Beach Automotive Weekend is an optimal time to showcase our line-up of new and reinvigorated performance models, including the Jaguar F-TYPE, and Playboy, which exudes desire, is a perfect partner for us to celebrate with again this year,” said Andy Goss. “The evening provided a perfect setting for both automotive aficionados and friends of Playboy as our guests enjoyed a night of sophisticated company and beautiful cars.”Earlier on Friday, Gadot got behind the wheel of Jaguar’s all-new F-TYPE, where she participated in a caravan of red, white and blue F-TYPE vehicles driving through the streets of Monterey, Calif.

Another highlight for the brand from Pebble Beach was television host, famed car enthusiast and Jaguar owner, Jay Leno, who drove the Jaguar Project 7 Concept Car, the all-aluminum bodied roadster, based on the 2014 Jaguar F-TYPE at the Nicklaus Club Monterey, prior to it making its North American debut at the prestigious Pebble Beach Concour D’Elegance Concept Lawn on Sunday.

Continuing throughout the weekend, Jaguar will feature its full product line up at the Pebble Beach Automotive Weekend. For updated news from Jaguar during the Pebble Beach automotive weekend, log onto
