The new Jaguar F-Type Heritage 60 from SV Bespoke Features pays homage to the legendary E-Type.
When Jaguar first launched the E-Type, it’s curvy, racy persona captures the essence of the era. It was the swinging 60s, a time of rebellion and expression, and the E-Type fit right in, becoming an instant classic. Fast forward over half a century and Jaguar marks the 60th anniversary of the E-Type with a very special model of the F-Type, laced with classic E-Type elements.
The new 575PS V8 Supercharged F-Type Heritage 60 Edition is limited to just 60 cars, each of which is hand-finished by the personalisation experts at SV Bespoke. Specially curated commemorative specifications include solid Sherwood Green paintwork, an original E-type colour that hasn’t been offered on a new Jaguar since the 1960s and extended duo-tone Caraway and Ebony Windsor leather interior trim, which isn’t normally available on F-Type.
The new limited-run model also features a unique aluminum console finisher inspired by the E-type’s rear-view mirror casing, the E-type 60th anniversary logo embossed on the headrests of the lightweight Performance seats, and E-type 60 badging. Commemorative treadplates, an SV Bespoke commissioning plaque, and Caraway-edged carpet mats provide finishing touches.
The F-TYPE Heritage 60 Edition is available in both coupé 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.
Of course, the limited-edition model is more than just nostalgia. Launched in December 2019, the new F-Type R – which forms the basis of the new F-Type Heritage 60 Edition – is exclusively all-wheel drive and features revised dampers, anti-roll bars and rear suspension knuckles for heightened driver engagement. Jaguar’s 575PS supercharged V8 propels this green demon to 100km/ph in just 3.5 seconds.
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 Smartphone Pack with Apple CarPlay as standard.
