Famous Cars Of The Big Screen: Jaguar XK140 Roadster from Cruel Intentions

This month, we're taking a closer look at the Jaguar XK140 Roadster from Cruel Intentions...


Every month, we’ll be talking about the most famous cars that have appeared on the big screen and will always be remembered for that very reason.

This month, we’re taking a closer look at the Jaguar XK140 Roadster from Cruel Intentions


Sebastian’s vintage Jaguar is an absolute beauty and it plays a central role in the plot of this classic nineties flick. To refresh your memories, Kathryn (Sarah Michelle Gellar) makes a bet that her step-brother, Sebastian (Ryan Phillippe), won’t be able to bed  Annette (Reese Witherspoon) before the start of the new school year. If Sebastian loses, Kathryn get the Roadster, and if he wins, he gets Kathryn. Totally normal.

The car features throughout the film with Sebastian behind the wheel but its most memorable moment comes in the very last scene. Following her epic public takedown of Kathryn, the camera pans to a smug Annette, shades on and wind in her hair, driving off into the sunset with the slick sounds of Bittersweet Symphony blasting in the background. It’s pretty snazzy in fairness.
