The Jaguar F-Type Heritage 60 Edition has been revealed and the model marks the 60th anniversary of the iconic E-Type sportscar.
- Only 60 units of the F-Type Heritage 60 Edition will be made
- It gets the F-Type R’s 575hp, 5.0-litre V8 engine
- It gets cosmetic updates on the interior and exterior
Jaguar will make only 60 examples of the F-Type Heritage 60 Edition and it will be offered for sale globally (excluding China). Each will be hand-finished by Jaguar Land Rover’s SV Bespoke “personalisation experts”, with both coupé and convertible bodystyles offered.
Jaguar F-Type Heritage 60 Edition engine
It’s based on the F-Type R and hence comes equipped with a 5.0-litre supercharged V8 engine producing 575hp and 700Nm of torque. The power is sent to all four wheels via an 8-speed automatic gearbox. This also means that the Heritage 60 Edition matches the 3.5 seconds 0-100kph time and 300kph limited top speed of the F-Type R.
Jaguar F-Type Heritage 60 Edition design
The standout external change is the use of solid Sherwood Green paintwork – a hue employed by Jaguar for the original E-Type’s colour palette that hasn’t been offered since the 1960s.
Further exterior tweaks include “heritage-inspired” gloss black and chrome trim accents, diamond-turned and forged 20-inch gloss black alloy wheels and black brake callipers.
Jaguar F-Type Heritage 60 Edition interiors
A number of revisions to the cabin also feature a new leather upholstery option consisting of two-tone Caraway and Ebony Windsor leather. The headrests have embossed E-Type 60th logos. There’s also an aluminium console finisher inspired by the E-Type’s rear -view mirror casing, commemorative badging, a commissioning plaque and special carpet mats.
Jaguar F-Type Heritage 60 Edition production
Each model will be built in Jaguar Land Rover’s Castle Bromwich plant and then finished by XV Bespoke at Jaguar Special Vehicle Operations in Warwickshire.
In addition, Jaguar’s Classic operation will build six matched pairs of restored 3.8-litre E-Types. They’re based on the original prototype cars - with nameplates 77RW and 9600HP - including the one driven from Coventry to Geneva to launch the car at the Swiss city’s motor show in 1961.
Jaguar F-Type India
Earlier this year, Jaguar launched the F-Type facelift in India, with its prices starting at Rs 95.12 lakh for the P300 Coupe and going all the way up to Rs 2.42 crore (ex-showroom, India) for the V8 powered R convertible.
Besides the F-Type, Jaguar also offers the XE and XF sedans as well as the F-Pace SUV in India. The all-electric I-Pace SUV is also slated to be launched in our market in 2021, with bookings for the model already open.
