Jaguar is going back to its roots with the release of its British Design Edition Jaguar F-Type. Only 300 of the Limited Edition Jaguars will be available in the U.S, and several are coming to Jaguar Dallas and Jaguar Plano in May. (More info below.)
Based on the F-TYPE S Coupe and Convertible and featuring a range of visual enhancements and additional equipment, the British Design Edition is offered in a specially-selected color palette inspired by the Union Jack: Caldera Red, Glacier White and – new to the F-TYPE range – Ultra Blue. Ultimate Black is also available.
Outside, the British Design Edition features discreet British Design Edition badges front and rear, as well as unique branding on the center console, headrests and the stainless steel tread plates.
Complementing the range of exterior colors is a crafted premium Jet leather interior finished with contrast stitching in a choice of three colors: Red, Ivory and Reims Blue. The driver-focused theme of the ‘one-plus-one’ cabin is heightened by carbon fiber trim around the center console.
Exterior enhancements include the addition of 20-inch Cyclone wheels with unique Satin Grey finish which surround the uprated Jaguar Super Performance Braking System featuring red calipers.
“The F-TYPE is a sports car that excites the senses, with a visual drama that is both individual and very British,” said Ian Callum, Jaguar Director of Design. “Creating the British Design Edition gave us the opportunity to subtly enhance the way the F-TYPE looks – inside and out.”
The Jaguar F-TYPE British Design Edition will be available in Coupe and Convertible body styles.
Power comes exclusively from the 380HP supercharged 3.0-litre V6 gas engine, matched to an eight-speed Quickshift transmission in rear- or all-wheel drive.
As the winner of more than 140 international awards since its launch in 2012, the all-aluminum Jaguar F-TYPE is not only the embodiment of Jaguar DNA, it is the definitive British sports car. Completing the exterior enhancements are new badges for the front grille and the tailgate. In place of the red and green of the S roundel, the British Design Edition features Union Jack detailing in subtle monochrome.
The interior of the F-TYPE has always been a special place to be. The British Design Edition offers premium Jet leather finished with contrast stitching in a choice of three distinctive colors – Red, Ivory and Reims Blue – the 14-way performance seats also feature headrests embossed with British Design Edition branding to further distinguish the British Design Edition F-TYPE from other S models.
Replacing aluminum in the F-TYPE S, the British Design Edition features satin finish carbon fiber trim on the center console complete with British Design Edition branding; perfectly complementing the premium Jet leather interior.
The InControlRemote App is also available for the Apple Watch®; allowing interaction with the vehicle from anywhere in the world. Functionality is similar to the current InControlRemote smartphone app, allowing drivers to use their Apple Watch to lock and unlock the vehicle, check how much fuel is in the tank and find their car on a map as well as set the climate control and start the engine to bring the cabin to the desired temperature before their journey begins.
The Jaguar F-TYPE British Design Edition will be available in Spring 2016. Production is limited to just 300 units in the United States.
