She's often seen posing away next to her beloved vintage SL Mercedes car.

But earlier this week it was the new Jaguar F-Type model that Lana Del Rey seemed enamoured with as she helped to launch the new vehicle in France.

The Blue Jeans hitmaker was the star guest at the Paris Motor Show on Tuesday night as she helped to unveil the car, which is Jaguar's first two-seater type in 50 years since the release of the E-Type.

And in publicity shots to coincide with the launch Lana certainly sets motors racing as she poses leaning back on a red version of the F-Type in a white dress cut to show off her legs.

The singer can be seen smouldering at the camera as she rests on the bonnet of the car while wearing matching heels to compliment the look.

She even wears red lipstick to co-ordinate with the car while her tumbling locks are worn down and curly.

But it wasn't only her looks that were used to help boost the launch event.

Del Rey was also there to entertain the VIP audience at the Musee Rodin as she belted out her track Burning Desire.

The song is said to be inspired by the launch of the new Jaguar.

It is set to feature on Lana's new album Born To Die: The Paradise Edition, and is also set to be the soundtrack to a new short film starring Damian Lewis, which will be created by Jaguar in association with Ridley Scott Associates.

Last month it was announced that Lana would be the face of the brand's new sports car.

At the time she appeared in a poolside shoot wearing a plunging white swimsuit and floppy straw hat as she poses in a swimming pool in the photographs.

In a press release, the company
announced: 'Singer songwriter, Lana Del Rey will collaborate with Jaguar
on the launch of the all-new F-TYPE, a two-seater sports car that is a
vivid representation of the vitality of the Jaguar brand. 



'The
allure of Jaguar is in large part due to its duality – a unique blend
of authenticity and modernity, two values that we believe are shared
with Lana in her professional achievements.'

Lana seems to be a bit of a secret petrol head, and has been snapped on numerous occasions driving around Los Angeles driving a vintage Mercedes.

She also penned a track called Driving In Cars With Boys where she sings about how much she loves being driven around.

The
lyrics: 'Mommy's Mercedes or Billy's pickup truck, I call em all late
at night, baby fix me up, Told them just drive on and d-don't ever stop,
Don't take me home again, take me to a new land,' are an ode to driving
through the city after dark.
