Handful of Heritage 60 Edition F-TYPE coupés headed to Australia

JUST five examples of a new limited-edition Sherwood Green Jaguar F-TYPE from SV Bespoke are headed to Australia, with the ultra limited edition variant commemorating 60th anniversary of the E-type in 2021.

Jaguar will celebrate the diamond anniversary of the legendary E-type with the F-TYPE Heritage 60 Edition (based on the F-TYPE R), featuring a 423kW supercharged V8, pushing out 700Nm of torque to the all-wheel drive system.

Its performance is exceptional, sprinting from 0-100km/h takes just 3.7 seconds, while maximum speed is an electronically-limited 300kph.

Featuring a solid Sherwood Green paint from the E-type palette, which Jaguar hasn’t offered since the 1960s, a total of 60 hand-finished cars will be available worldwide.

Each example features exclusive heritage-inspired gloss black and chrome accents and diamond turned gloss black 20-inch forged alloy wheels, and a bespoke interior, with specially curated materials utilised in the build.

A duo-tone Caraway and Ebony Windsor leather, E-type-inspired aluminum console finisher and SV Bespoke commissioning plaque all feature. E-type 60th anniversary logo is embossed on the headrests of the lightweight performance seats as well.

The F-TYPE also provides a suite of advanced driver-focused technologies, including a reconfigurable, high-definition, 12.3-inch TFT instrument cluster, Touch Pro infotainment system and Jaguar’s smartphone pack, with Apple CarPlay as standard.

Each Heritage 60 Edition is built at Jaguar’s Castle Bromwich plant in the UK and finished by the SV Bespoke team at Jaguar Special Vehicle Operations in Warwickshire.

“Celebrating 60 years of the iconic Jaguar E-type is the perfect moment to create our first-ever SV Bespoke limited edition – and the rarest F-TYPE, with just 60 cars available globally,” Jaguar SV Bespoke commercial director Mark Turner said.

“We’ve worked closely with Jaguar Design to develop a theme for the F-TYPE Heritage 60 Edition that pays homage to the E-type in a contemporary way. It’s testament to Jaguar’s sports car design lineage that the 1960s Sherwood Green colour looks as though it was designed for today’s F-TYPE.”

Set to be priced at around $330,000 plus on-road costs, it can be ordered now ahead of its March unveiling. To find out more, contact your local Jaguar dealership, or visit www.jaguar.com.au
