Jaguar will be introducing two new special edition models to the SA market later this year. Both are based on the well-known F-Pace SUV.
The first is the 300 Sport Special Edition. It comes with a choice of two 221kW AWD engine options; the 2.0-litre Ingenium petrol and 3.0-litre V6 diesel. The former has 400Nm of torque and can accelerate from 0-100km/h in 6.1 seconds on its way to a top speed of 233km/h, while the latter offers 700Nm of torque and can accelerate from 0-100km/h in 6.4 seconds with a top speed of 241km/h.
It can be identified by distinctive Dark Satin Grey exterior detailing. Starting with the front grille surround, this extends to the side window surrounds, side vents, mirror caps and door finishers, as well as the rear valance. With 300 SPORT badges on the front grille and rear tailgate, it is available exclusively in Yulong White, Indus Silver and Santorini Black.
Step inside and the yellow contrast stitching on the instrument panel, centre console and leather seats provide a unique feel to the interior. The 300 SPORT logo is badged on the treadplates, carpet mats and steering wheel and is also embossed on the front headrests.
Comfort and convenience features include Touch Pro Navigation with Connect Pro that enables the driver to control essential features remotely. Jaguar’s 12.3-inch Interactive Driver Display provides a customisable and intuitive driver interface. A Meridian sound system and 14-way electric front seats also form part of the standard specification.
Chequered Flag Special Edition
The Chequered Flag is based on the R-Sport model and comes with a distinctive exterior that includes a sport front bumper and striking Gloss Black detailing on the front grille, door cladding, side vents, and roof rails. The Chequered Flag is available in Yulong White, Santorini Black and in the newly introduced colour, Eiger Grey.
Inside, the cabin has a seamless blend of luxurious materials and crafted finishes, with features including leather trim, meshed aluminium detailing and Chequered Flag treadplates. Occupants also benefit from a range of features such as 10-way electric front seats, Touch Pro Navigation Pack, Meridian Sound System, reconfigurable 12.3-inch Interactive Driver Display and the Touch Pro infotainment system as standard.
A range of 2.0-litre AWD powertrains are available with the Chequered Flag, beginning with the more performance-focused 184kW 2.0-litre AWD Ingenium petrol, which powers the F-PACE from 0-100km/h in 7.0 seconds and to a top speed of 217km/h. Two 2.0-litre diesel options offer either 132kW or 177kW, both also with all-wheel drive.
The special edition models will be available in the third quarter of 2019 with pricing to be announced closer to the time.
