Jaguar launch British Design Edition F-Type

Jaguar has kicked off the year in patriotic style, offering a special new ‘British Design Edition’ of the F-Type.

The British Edition features a number of upgrades and distinctive detail changes, including a ‘Sport Design’ body kit, which adds a rear bumper venturi, front splitter and side skirts.  Equipped with an 8 speed automatic gearbox and all-wheel drive, the 375bhp, 3-litre V6 engine delivers 0-60mph in 4.9 secs.

The special edition is available in 4 eye-catching colours – Caldera Red, Glacier White, Ultra Blue and Ultimate Black – with 20inch alloys, finished in an exclusive satin grey.  Union Jack badges feature internally and externally.

Jaguar’s improved InControl Touch system is included, with 380W Meridian stereo and a smartphone app that allows drivers to check fuel levels, set climate control, lock and unlock the car and start the engine remotely.  Further detailing includes carbon fibre trim and premium Jet leather, with patriotic-coloured contrasting stitching and embossed badging on the headrests and centre console.

Deliveries will begin in Spring 2016, with pricing starting at £80,390 for the Convertible and £75,225 for the Coupe.
