Jaguar unveils a special version of its flagship model

Jaguar has unveiled a special limited edition version of its flagship model.

Just 150 F-Type Reims Edition models will be built with orders being taken now.

The one-off version of Jaguar’s current sports car is finished in a striking French Racing Blue colour.

It is also only available only to UK customers and available in Coupé form only.

There’s a choice of two power variants – either P300 or P450 RWD.

The bespoke exterior shade of blue is reserved only for the F-Type Reims Edition, which becomes the second Jaguar in the series, following the XE Reims Edition late in 2019.

Other exterior enhancements include the standard fitment of the Exterior Black Pack, with gloss black side vents, Jaguar script and Leaper, and grille surround.

A set of 20-inch five split-spoke gloss black alloy wheels are also a feature. 

Inside, Reims Edition customers are treated to an ebony/ebony interior combination, finished with the Interior Black Pack – gloss black door switches, door handles, instrument cluster finisher and more – and a number of options.

Among them buyers will find the fixed panoramic roof, heated seats and the climate pack, to include two-zone climate control, heated steering wheel and a heated windscreen.

All of these extras are included in the F-Type Reims Edition, which is priced at £58,950 for the P300 and £71,450 for the P450, offering savings of up to £4,160.

The Reims Edition moniker is inspired by Jaguar’s sporting heritage, specifically the D-Type’s maiden victory at the 12 Hours of Reims in 1954 which marked the start of a golden era in Jaguar competition history, and went on to influence all future Jaguar sports cars, from the E-Type to the F-Type.

Jaguar is celebrating the 60th anniversary of the iconic E-Type this year, an event being commemorated by another special F-Type produced by Jaguar Land Rover’s Special Vehicle Operations team in Ryton on the edge of Coventry.

The limited-edition F-Type Heritage 60 Edition is finished in Sherwood Green – another nostalgic colour choice – and comes with 1960s inspired details, a bespoke interior and commemorative badging marking the E-Type’s diamond anniversary.

Rawdon Glover, Jaguar Land Rover UK MD, said: “With the F-Type Reims Edition we’re able to take the most advanced sports car we’ve ever produced, imbue it with a little bit of Jaguar racing heritage and deliver our customers even more value and exclusivity.

“For just 150 UK customers, and in the enormously important year for Jaguar’s sports car history, the F-Type is more enticing than ever.”

The F-Type ‘Reims Edition’ is available to order now, with the first customer deliveries taking place in March.
