Jaguar is marking the 60th anniversary of its legendary E-type sportscar in 2021 with the introduction of a limited-edition 575 horsepower (423kW) V8 Supercharged F-TYPE Heritage 60 Edition.

Just 60 examples of these all-wheel drive sportscars will be available for sale worldwide, each one hand-finished by the personalisation experts at SV Bespoke.

Aussies have long loved Jaguars, especially the quick ones and it’s great to see that five Coupes have been secured for the Australian market.

A specially curated commemorative specification includes 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 an aluminium console finisher inspired by the E-type’s rear-view mirror casing. E-type 60th anniversary logo embossed on the headrests of the lightweight Performance seats and E-type 60 badging shared with the limited-edition E-type 60 Collection vehicles which were announced by Jaguar Classic earlier this year.

Commemorative tread plates, an SV Bespoke commissioning plaque and Caraway-edged carpet mats provide excellent finishing touches.
