Jaguar Celebrates E-Type Anniversary With Limited-Run F-Type Heritage 60 Edition


Jaguar is commemorating the 60th anniversary of the iconic E-Type with the launch of the F-Type Heritage 60 Edition. Production will be capped at just 60 units worldwide and it will be available in both Coupe and Convertible body styles.

Immediately making the F-Type Heritage 60 Edition stand out from other models is the unique Sherwood Green paint that hasn’t been offered on a new Jaguar since the 1960s. The custom touches continue with exclusive diamond-turned gloss black 20-inch forged alloy wheels, black brake calipers, and unique exterior badging.

The British car manufacturer has also worked on the interior, where there is a bespoke aluminum console finish inspired by the E-Type’s rear-view mirror casing and an E-Type 60th anniversary logo embossed on the headrests. Further adding to the appeal of the special F-Type are commemorative treadplates, an SV Bespoke commissioning plaque and Caraway-edged carpet mats.

“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,” commercial director of Jaguar SV Bespoke, Mark Turner, said. “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 colour looks as though it was designed for today’s F-TYPE.”

The limited-run Jag is based on the F-Type R, which means it is powered by a 5.0-liter supercharged V8 churning out 567 hp. UK prices start from £122,500 ($163,869).
