The Jaguar F-Type has always been the envious eye candy of many automotive enthusiasts, thanks in part to its elegant styling language, as well as the way the car recaptures some of the performance magic that once defined vintage models like the XK120, E-Type, as well as the Jaguar XK. The British luxury car maker has decided to allow lucky owners to go for the checkered flag so to speak, and has unveiled an all new special edition F-Type for them to sink their teeth into.
Dubbed the Checkered Flag edition, this unique treatment is only available on R-Dynamic coupe and convertible models, with Jaguar claiming that the package is supposed to commemorate the company’s sports car heritage which dates back to the 1948 XK120. Unlike a few prior special edition packages for the F-Type, this one is not focused on improving performance in any notable way (which is good enough as it is.) Instead, the Checkered Flag edition is purely a styling package with both body styles benefitting from a contrasting black roof, as well as both models being equipped with a luxurious Windsor leather interior that comes equipped with performance sport seats, as well as model exclusive embossed headrests. Dark brushed aluminum accents and a choice of either Red or Cirrus contrast stitching to add some pop to the cabin.
The exterior enhancements are equally mild, with 20-inch gloss black wheels being the main calling card of the Checkered Flag edition along with the scattered splashes of black trim that are scattered through out the exterior. Pricing for the Checkered Flag edition will start at $72,925, with buyers being able to choose from either the 2.0 liter 292 horsepower turbocharged four cylinder, or the optional 3.0 liter 380 horsepower supercharged V6.
Buyers looking for a more practical approach to their checkered flag infused motoring can also go for the XF checkered flag edition which brings some of its counterpart’s charm to both the XF sedan and the Sportbrake.
