A new special edition F-Type, celebrating 70 years of Jaguar sports cars, has just been revealed.
Coming as a coupe or convertible, the F-Type Chequered Flag features some suitably stylish touches, inside and out, as well as the stunning performance you’d expect from a flagship sports car that’s won more than 170 awards globally.
Exterior visual highlights include the exterior black design pack, which benefits from SVO extended side sills to subtly increase visual width and give the car even greater presence and poise.
Other details that denote the Chequered Flag special edition include a black contrast roof (on the coupe) and 20-inch gloss black wheels with diamond-turned finish, exclusive to this variant, which perfectly complements the red finish of the brake calipers.
Inside, there’s a luxurious Windsor leather interior featuring performance seats with embossed headrests, as well as a dark brushed aluminium centre console trim finisher and a steering wheel with discrete Chequered Flag logo and red leather band to mark the 12 o’clock position.
The Chequered Flag badge can also be found on the headrests, tread plates and dark brushed aluminium centre console finisher.
Under the bonnet is a two-litre four-cylinder Ingenium petrol engine, producing 295bhp and 400Nm of torque, or a supercharged three-litre V6 petrol engine with 335bhp and 450Nm or 374bhp/460Nm.
All offer an outstanding balance of responsiveness, power and efficiency – and all with a visceral soundtrack that reflects the F-Type’s truly driver-focused character.
Prices for the Jaguar F-Type Chequered Flag start from £62,335 on the road.
Jaguar’s design director Ian Callum said the Chequered Flag focuses on details that enhance F-Type’s presence and promise of performance to achieve a fitting celebration of 70 years of beautiful, fast, Jaguar sports cars.
Jess Wort, marketing manager at Petrol News, added: “Few of us were around when the XK 120 was introduced in 1948, but this special edition F-Type shows how far the marque has come in seven decades.”
