2017 Jaguar F-Type British Design Edition Bound for Jaguar Showrooms This Spring


MAHWAH, New Jersey — The 2017 Jaguar F-Type British Design Edition coupe and convertible, which are inspired by the British Union Jack flag, will arrive at Jaguar dealerships this spring.

Jaguar said the pair will be priced from $93,095, including a $995 destination charge.

Just 300 units of the British Design Edition F-Types will be sold in the U.S.

The special models are based on the Jaguar F-Type S and come equipped with a 380-horsepower supercharged 3.0-liter V6 engine linked to an eight-speed automatic transmission. They are available in rear- or all-wheel drive.

Color is a major component of the British Design Edition, which can be ordered in a special palette. Exterior choices include Caldera Red, Glacier White and new Ultra Blue. Ultimate Black is also available.

Other exterior cues include 20-inch Cyclone wheels with a Satin Grey finish.

The cabin features a Jet black leather interior with contrast stitching in either red, ivory or Reims Blue.

The cosmetic treatment on the F-Type British Design Edition is much more subtle than the one on the Mini Cooper Union Jack model, which adds a large Union Jack graphic on the roof and smaller versions of the flag throughout the car.

Subtle badging on the special F-Type hints at the British standard, but stops short of emblazoning the Union Jack all over the cars.

Jaguar calls the treatment "both individual and very British."

It also helps to set the F-Type apart from global competitors that include the all-American Chevrolet Corvette and the Porsche 911, with its German roots.

In comparison, the base 2017 Jaguar F-Type coupe is priced at $62,395, including a $995 destination charge.

The base 2017 Jaguar F-Type convertible starts at $66,395, including shipping.

Edmunds says: A great way to customize your 2017 Jaguar F-Type, especially if you're an Anglophile.
