F-Type British Design Edition an embodiment of Jaguar
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.
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 specially-selected 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.
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.
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).
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.
Befitting its status, the F-TYPE British Design Edition model is offered in Caldera Red, Glacier White and – new to the F-TYPE range – Ultra Blue.
Replacing the aluminium of the F-TYPE S, carbon fibre trim is used on the centre console – this is also complete with British Design Edition branding. The texture and satin finish of this material complements the premium Jet leather interior perfectly.
Thanks to repackaging of key components at the rear of the vehicle, all 2017 model year F-TYPE convertibles offer an additional eight litres of luggage space.
The standard specification of the British Design Edition also includes upgraded audio compared to the F-TYPE S, equipping vehicles with the InControl Touch infotainment system benefit from a 380W Meridian system with 10 speakers. There is also the option of the InControl Touch Plus system delivers 770W of Meridian surround sound through 12 speakers.
Both InControl Touch and InControl Touch Plus support the familiar InControl Apps and InControl Remote features, but the InControl Remote App is now available for the Apple Watch. Interacting with the vehicle – from anywhere in the world – has never been easier.
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 Jaguar F-Type British Design Edition is priced from £75,225 for Coupé version, and £80,390 for Convertible with customer deliveries begin Spring 2016.
