Jaguar has lifted the wraps on a British Design Edition of its award-winning F-TYPE sports car.
And the exclusive model will feature special colours inspired by the Union Jack in the shades of Caldera Red, Glacier White and – new to the F-TYPE range – Ultra Blue. There’s also an Ultimate Black option.
Cars will be up for grabs as either a coupe or convertible and also boast a Sport Design pack plus discreet British Design Edition badges and branding on the centre console, headrests and tread plates.
Optional on the S model, the Sport Design Pack is standard equipment on the British Design Edition and comprises a gloss black front splitter, body-coloured side sill extensions and rear venturi while a fixed rear spoiler is also available for the coupe.
Inside, the F-TYPE has premium Jet leather upholstery finished with contrast stitching in a choice of three colours, along with carbon fibre trim around the centre console.
Power comes exclusively from brand’s 380PS supercharged 3.0-litre V6 petrol engine, matched to an eight-speed Quickshift transmission and all-wheel drive.
The standard spec of the newcomer also includes upgraded audio compared to the F-TYPE S, equipping vehicles with the InControl Touch infotainment system with a 380W 10-speaker Meridian system.
It means Apple Watch owners will be able to lock and unlock the vehicle, check fuel levels and find it on a map.
It’s also possible to set the climate control and start the engine to bring the cabin to the desired temperature before a journey begins.
Jaguar design director Ian Callum said: “The F-TYPE is a sports car that excites the senses with a visual drama that is both individual and very British.
“Creating the British Design Edition gave us the opportunity to subtly enhance the way the F-TYPE looks – inside and out.”
Customer deliveries begin this spring and prices are from £75,225 for the coupe and £80,390 for the convertible – around £9,000 more than the standard S models.
