Jaguar unveils 60th anniversary Heritage F-Type

Only 60 of the special-edition cars will be produced to celebrate E-Type anniversary

-

Jaguar will celebrate the diamond anniversary of its famed E-type sports car by producing 60 examples of the F-Type Heritage 60 Edition from SV Bespoke, the British automaker announced December 9.

The cars will come in Sherwood Green paint, an E-type color not offered since the 1960s, the company added. The cars will be available as convertibles or coupes, with gloss-black and chrome accents and diamond-turned gloss-black 20-inch forged alloy wheels.

Interiors will feature specially curated materials including duo-tone Caraway and Ebony Windsor leather. The cars will get the same “E-type 60” badging as the 6 limited-edition matched pairs of 3.8-liter E-type 60 Collection cars restored by Jaguar Classic.

The 60 F-Type Heritage cars celebrating the 60th anniversary will have all-wheel drive and supercharged 575-horsepower F-Type R V8 engines.

“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,” said Mark Turner, commercial director for Jaguar SV Bespoke. 

“It’s testament to Jaguar’s sports car design lineage that the 1960s Sherwood Green color looks as though it was designed for today’s F-Type,” he added.

The cars will be built at the Castle Bromwich plant and finished by the SV Bespoke workshop at Jaguar Special Vehicle Operations in Warwickshire, England, the company said.

Pricing for the 60 vehicles was not announced. For more information, visit the Jaguar website.
