Jaguar has launched a new limited-edition F-TYPE Heritage 60 Edition globally to celebrate 60th anniversary of the E-type sports car in 2021. Just 60 examples of these all-wheel drive sports cars will be available for sale worldwide (expect China), each one hand-finished by the personalisation experts at SV Bespoke.
A specially curated commemorative specification includes solid Sherwood Green paintwork, an original E-type colour that hasn’t been offered on a new Jaguar since the 1960s, and extended duo-tone Caraway and Ebony Windsor leather interior trim which isn’t normally available on F-TYPE.
The new limited-run model also features a unique aluminum console finisher inspired by the E-type’s rear-view mirror casing, the E-type 60th anniversary logo embossed on the headrests of the lightweight Performance seats and E-type 60 badging shared with the limited-edition E-type 60 Collection vehicles announced by Jaguar Classic earlier this year. Commemorative treadplates, an SV Bespoke commissioning plaque and Caraway-edged carpet mats provide finishing touches.
The Jaguar F-TYPE Heritage 60 Edition is available in both Coupé and Convertible body styles with exclusive Diamond-Turned Gloss Black 20-inch forged alloy wheels, Gloss Black and Chrome exterior accents and black brake calipers.
The new Jaguar F-Type Heritage 60 Edition features revised dampers, anti-roll bars and rear suspension knuckles for heightened driver engagement. The F Type Heritage 60 Edition is powered by a 575 PS supercharged V8 engine, which produces 575 PS and 700 Nm of peak torque. The F Type sprints from 0-60mph takes just 3.5 seconds, while maximum speed is an electronically-limited to 300 km/h.
The F-TYPE also provides a suite of advanced driver-focused technologies, including a reconfigurable, high-definition, 12.3-inch TFT instrument cluster, Touch Pro Infotainment system and Smartphone Pack with Apple CarPlay as standard.
Each Heritage 60 Edition is built at Jaguar’s Castle Bromwich plant in the United Kingdom and finished by the SV Bespoke team at Jaguar Special Vehicle Operations in Warwickshire. The new model is priced from £122,500 (Rs 1.18 Crore) in the UK.
To celebrate the 60th anniversary of its iconic sports car, Jaguar Classic is creating six limited-edition matched pairs of restored 3.8-litre 1960s E-types paying tribute to two of the most famous examples: ‘9600 HP’ and ‘77 RW’, known as the E-type 60 Collection.
