The Jaguar F-Type Somehow Got More British With This New Special Edition

Luxury

The new F-Type sports a "British Edition" trim.

As if it were possible, Jaguar has made its F-Type more British. Maybe it's not such an impossibility, though, as Jaguar effortlessly slapped on a ton of new features to the sports car. The British Edition will keep the 3.0-liter V6 with around 340 hp but will be adding more color options, a sport design pack for its sleek exterior, a new performance braking system (with red or black calipers), and a new sound system. It will come in either coupe or convertible, and have a six-speed manual or an eight-speed auto.

All that pales in comparison to the very welcome addition of "jet premium" leather for the interior and the "British Design Edition" badging on the front and rear of the car. Don't forget the branding on headrests, tread plates and satin-finish carbon-fiber center console trim. All jesting aside, this seems like a fun way to buck up the F-Type, and not for lack of it being fitted with an AWD option and new 20-inch wheels allowing 255/35/R20 tires. Wait, those are smaller sizes than the stock options from 2015? The engine is also identical? Why are they offering this edition? The world may never know. But remember that new things are nice and nice things are good.
