Luxurious, Refined and Exclusive – The Jaguar F-Type British Edition

As uniquely British as afternoon tea and biscuits, Jaguar has doubled down on love of country with its new F-Type British Design Edition. Built on the six-cylinder F-Type S, this patriotic new edition includes a series of upgrades that give this special edition a unique flair. For complete specs of the F-Type available in the USA go ahead and visit the 2016 Jaguar F-Type article.

Let Your Flag Fly

Buyers will have their choice of red, white or blue for the exterior color and interior contrast stitching, which presents a nice contrast to the black leather interior. The sleek interior also includes carbon fiber trim around the center console. Black is available as an exterior option for those who keep their patriotism closer to the chest. The exterior color is nicely complemented by 20-inch wheels with a dark gray stain finish and upgraded brakes with snazzy red calipers in the rear. Upgraded aero is standard with the British Design Edition, as is the familiar 12-speaker Meridian sound system. The British Design Edition also rocks a specially designed insignia featuring the Union Jack inside and out.

Choose between coupe and convertible, and between rear or all-wheel drive. Both include the 3.0-liter supercharged V6 offering 380 horsepower and 339 feet pound of torque, and an eight-speed Quickshift automatic transmission. Limited in the US market to just 300 units, prices start at $92,100 with a $995 destination charge. While this price is $14,800 above the standard $77,300 of the F Type S Coupe, options standard on the British Design Edition bring the value up to $86,250, meaning that for an additional $5,850, US buyers can own a unique limited edition with strong resale value.

A Definitive Example of British Design

The Jaguar F-Type is unquestionably recognized as the definitive example of extraordinary modern British design. Awarded the prestigious title of World Car Design of the Year, its appeal is only further enhanced with the addition of the British Design Edition for the model year 2017.

Exciting the Senses

Jaguar’s Director of Design Ian Callum indicated that the British Design Edition was an opportunity to subtly enhance the appearance of the F-Type inside and out, creating a design that excites the senses, adds visual drama and captures the spirit of Britain.
