From the moment it was unveiled, the Jaguar F-TYPE gained global recognition as a great contemporary British design – including the prestigious World Car Design of the Year accolade – and now its appeal has been further enhanced by the creation of the exclusive British Design Edition.
The Jaguar F-TYPE British Design Edition will be available in Coupé and Convertible body styles. Power comes exclusively from the 380PS/ 460Nm supercharged 3.0-liter V6 engine, matched to the eight-speed Quickshift transmission all-wheel drive. The British Design Edition is fitted with 20-inch Cyclone wheels with Satin Dark Grey finish. The car also features uprated stopping power courtesy of the Jaguar Super Performance Brake system. The calipers are finished in red, with black available as an option.
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, Ultra Blue, and Ultimate Black.
Inside, the British Design Edition offers premium Jet leather throughout together with contrast stitching in a choice of three distinctive colors: Red, Ivory, and Reims Blue. The 14-way sports seats feature headrests embossed with British Design Edition branding. Replacing the aluminum of the F-TYPE S, carbon fiber trim is used on the center console. The texture and satin finish of this material complements the premium Jet leather interior perfectly.
Jaguar’s InControl Touch and InControl Touch Plus infotainment systems are offered with upgraded audio equipment – a 380W Meridian system with 10 speakers and an optional 770W Meridian system with surround sound through 12 speakers.
InControl Touch and InControl Touch Plus support a range of apps that make it easier than ever for the driver to stay connected. Functionality is similar to the current InControl Remote smartphone app, so drivers will be able to use their Apple Watch to lock and unlock the vehicle, check how much fuel is in the tank and find it on a map. It’s even possible to set the climate control and start the engine to bring the cabin to the desired temperature before the journey begins.
The new Jaguar F-Type British Design Edition will be available Spring 2016.
