Jaguar will celebrate the 60th anniversary of its legendary E-type sports car in 2021 by launching the limited F-TYPE Heritage 60 Edition. There will be only 60 units manufactured which will be available either as a convertible or coupe and each of them will be hand-finished by Jaguar experts.
The car is finished in Sherwood Green shade and this would be the first time since the 1960s that we get to see a Jaguar in that paintwork. The interiors are done in duo-tone Caraway and Ebony Windsor leather, which is not available with the regular F-TYPE as of now. Key highlights of the interiors also include an SV Bespoke commissioning plaque, Caraway-edged carpet mats, a unique aluminium console, lightweight performance seats with the E-Type 60th anniversary logo embossed on the headrests and on the doorsills, which enhance the looks of the car.
Under the hood lies a 575 PS supercharged V8 motor mated to an 8-speed automatic which produces 700 Nm of torque and results in a 0 to 100 kmph sprint just under 3.5 seconds. It is an all-wheel-drive system and the top speed is electronically limited to 300 kmph (186mph). The limited-edition car from Jaguar provides a host of driver-centric features like the reconfigurable, high-definition, 12.3-inch TFT instrument cluster, Touch Pro Infotainment system, Smartphone Pack with Apple CarPlay as standard and more. Each of the Heritage 60 Edition is manufactured in Bromwich, United Kingdom where Jaguar’s manufacturing plant is located. From there the cars move to Warwickshire where the SV Bespoke team of Jaguar Special Vehicle Operations give the finishing touches. Jaguar is quoting a price tag of GBP 122,500 in the UK which converts to INR 1.20 Crores.
In India, there are a total of 4 models on sale, Jaguar XE and Jaguar XF in the luxury sedan segment, Jaguar F-Pace in the SUV segment, and Jaguar F-Type in the luxury sports car segment. Jaguar Land Rover Limited, a British multinational car manufacturer became a subsidiary of the Tata Motors Limited when the former was acquired by them on 2nd June in 2008.
