The best of Bri­tish for a global star

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - MOTORS -

Based on the F-TYPE S Coupé and Con­vert­ible, and fea­tur­ing a range of vis­ual en­hance­ments and ad­di­tional equip­ment, the Bri­tish De­sign Edi­tion is of­fered in a spe­ciall­y­s­e­lected colour pal­ette in­spired by the Union Jack: Caldera Red, Glacier White and – new to the F-TYPE range – Ul­tra Blue. Ul­ti­mate Black is also avail­able.

Fur­ther en­hance­ments to the F-TYPE’s award­win­ning de­sign come from the Sport De­sign pack and discreet Bri­tish De­sign Edi­tion badges front and rear, with unique brand­ing on the cen­tre con­sole, head­rests and the stain­less steel tread plates.

Be­hind the 20-inch Cy­clone wheels with unique Satin Grey fin­ish is an up­rated brak­ing sys­tem fea­tur­ing red calipers (black is avail­able as an op­tion).

Com­ple­ment­ing the range of ex­te­rior colours is a crafted pre­mium Jet leather in­te­rior fin­ished with con­trast stitch­ing in a choice of three colours. The driver-fo­cused theme of the ‘one-plus-one’ cabin is height­ened by car­bon fi­bre trim around the cen­tre con­sole.

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-litre V6 petrol en­gine, matched to the eight-speed Quick­shift trans­mis­sion all-wheel drive.

Win­ner of more than 140 awards since its launch in 2012, the all-alu­minium Jaguar F-TYPE is not only the em­bod­i­ment of Jaguar DNA - it is the de­fin­i­tive Bri­tish sports car.

En­hanc­ing the F-TYPE’s dra­matic lines is the Sport De­sign Pack. Op­tional on the S model, this is stan­dard equip­ment on the Bri­tish De­sign Edi­tion and com­prises a gloss black front split­ter, body-coloured side sill ex­ten­sions and rear ven­turi – a fixed rear spoiler is also avail­able for the Coupé.

The 20-inch Cy­clone wheels with Satin Dark Grey fin­ish are unique to the Bri­tish De­sign Edi­tion and are fit­ted with 255/35/ R20 and 295/30/R20 tyres front and rear re­spec­tively. Bri­tish De­sign Edi­tion cen­tre caps are avail­able as an ac­ces­sory fit. And as well as larger wheels and tyres than the F-TYPE S, the Bri­tish De­sign Edi­tion 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. 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.

Ian Cal­lum, di­rec­tor of de­sign, Jaguar said: “The F-TYPE is a sports car that ex­cites the senses, with a vis­ual drama that is both in­di­vid­ual and very Bri­tish. Cre­at­ing the Bri­tish De­sign Edi­tion gave us the op­por­tu­nity to sub­tly en­hance the way the F-TYPE looks – in­side and out.”
