POLISHED DIAMOND: ’21 JAGUAR F-TYPE HERITAGE 60 from SV Bespoke celebrates the diamond anniversary of the legendary E-Type. Limited edition of 60 will be built, insuring its collectability status.
Jaguar will be celebrating the 60th anniversary of the E-Type in 2021 with the introduction of a limited edition F-TYPE Heritage 60 Edition. Based on the supercharged, all-wheel-drive 575-horsepower F-TYPE R, only 60 will be available for sale worldwide – each hand-finished by the personalization experts at SV Bespoke. The F-TYPE R embodies Jaguar sports car design DNA in its purest form and offers a perfect balance of performance and driver reward. The sprint from 0-60 mph takes just 3.5 seconds, while maximum speed is an electronically limited 186 mph.
“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,” said Mark Turner, Commercial Director, Jaguar SV Bespoke. “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 color looks as though it was designed for today’s F-TYPE.”
Not offered on a new Jaguar since the 1960s, the Sherwood Green paint is complemented by a model-exclusive, extended duo-tone Caraway and Ebony Windsor leather interior trim. The limited-run F-TYPE Heritage 60 Edition also features a unique aluminum console finish, inspired by the E-Type rear-view mirror casing, E-Type 60th anniversary logo, which is embossed on the headrests of the lightweight Performance seats, and E-type 60 badging shared with the limited-edition E-type 60 Collection vehicles, announced by Jaguar Classic earlier this year. Commemorative sill plates, an SV Bespoke commissioning plaque and Caraway-edged carpet mats provide finishing touches.
The POLISHED DIAMOND: ’21 JAGUAR F-TYPE HERITAGE 60 is available in both coupe and convertible body styles with exclusive Diamond-Turned Gloss Black 20-inch forged alloy wheels, Gloss Black and Chrome exterior accents, and black brake calipers. Each Heritage 60 Edition will be built at the Castle Bromwich plant in the United Kingdom and finished by the SV Bespoke team at Jaguar Special Vehicle Operations in Warwickshire.
“The F-TYPE Heritage 60 Edition is a fantastic example of what the SV Bespoke team is capable of,” said Clare Hansen, Director of Vehicle Personalization, Jaguar Special Vehicle Operations. “With unrivaled access to original drawings, paint codes and reference materials and working hand-in-hand with our colleagues at Jaguar Classic, we’ve created a distinctive and highly collectible interpretation of the definitive Jaguar sports car.”
To celebrate the 60th anniversary of its iconic sports car, Jaguar Classic is creating six limited-edition matched pairs of restored 3.8-liter 1960s E-Type vehicles paying tribute to two of the most famous examples: ‘9600 HP’ and ‘77 RW’, known as the E-Type 60 Collection.To learn more about the POLISHED DIAMOND: ’21 JAGUAR F-TYPE HERITAGE 60 and the latest luxury/performance vehicles from Jaguar Land Rover, please visit https://www.jaguarlandrover.com/2019/our-brands
