The famed Jaguar XK 120 sportscar was introduced in 1948 and to celebrate the passing of those 70 years since two Jaguar F-Type Chequered Flag Limited Edition models have been launched. They are based on both the F-Type R-Dynamic Coupe and Convertible.
Ian Callum, Director of Design at Jaguar, said: “In creating the Chequered Flag we’ve focused on details which enhance F-Type’s presence and promise of performance – and in doing so, made a fitting celebration of 70 years of beautiful, fast, Jaguar sports cars.”
Highlights include a Black Contrast roof on the F-Type Coupe. The exterior is enhanced by a Black Design Pack with SVO extended side sills and 20-inch Gloss Black wheels with Diamond Turned finish. There’s a Chequered Flag in the wheel centres and red brake callipers.
Inside there’s Windsor Leather on Performance seats with embossed headrests. There’s a Dark Brushed aluminium centre console trim finisher. In recognition of Jaguar’s motorsport successes the steering wheel has a Chequered Flag logo and red leather band to mark the 12 o’clock position.
Jaguar’s Touch Pro infotainment system features Meridian audio, a suite of connected services and, for the first time in F-Type, Apple CarPlay and Android auto. There’s a 10-inch touchscreen.
Power comes from either a 221kW/400Nm 2.0-litre four-cylinder Ingenium petrol engine or a choice of 250kW/450Nm or 280kW/ 460Nm supercharged 3.0-litre V6 petrol engines.
All engines are mated to an eight-speed Jaguar Quickshift transmissions and send drive to the rear wheels. In the 280kW models there’s the option of Jaguar’s all-wheel drive system.
