Jaguar unveil British Design Edition F-TYPE
After its resounding global recognition, Jaguar have unveiled the exclusive British Design Edition. Based on the F-TYPE S Coupé and Convertible featuring a range of visual enhancements and additional equipment, the British Design Edition is offered in a specially-selected colour palette inspired by the Union Jack: Caldera Red, Glacier White and – new to the F-TYPE range – Ultra Blue. Ultimate Black is also available.
Further enhancements to the F-TYPE’s award-winning design come from the Sport Design pack and discreet British Design Edition badges front and rear, with unique branding on the centre console, headrests and the stainless steel tread plates. Behind the 20-inch Cyclone wheels with unique Satin Grey finish (unique to the British design edition) is an uprated braking system featuring red calipers (black is available as an option). Completing the exterior enhancements are new badges for the front grille and the tailgate. In place of the red and green of the S roundel, the British Design Edition features Union Jack detailing in subtle monochrome.
The combination of a driver-orientated ‘one-plus-one’ cockpit, superbly comfortable and supportive seats, and luxury materials and finishes make Jaguar’s sports car different. Additional colour options come courtesy of the contrast stitching (Red, Ivory and Reims Blue) to the crafted premium Jet leather interior. The driver-focused theme of the ‘one-plus-one’ cabin is heightened by carbon fibre trim around the centre console.
Upgraded Jaguar’s InControl Touch and InControl Touch Plus infotainment systems are offered with developed together with leading British experts Meridian, strengthening the British theme. Both of the systems support the InControl Apps and InControl features but the app is now additionally available for the Apple Watch, making interaction with the vehicle from anywhere in the world that little bit easier. From unlocking and locking the vehicle, a fuel tank check and its location the possibilities are quite remarkable. Add in the ability to start the engine and set the climate control you can bring the cabin to the correct temperature before the journey begins – impressive.
