Jaguar F-Type ‘Chequered Flag’ special edition revealed

Celebrating 70 years of the Jaguar sports car, this special edition comes with styling and suspension tweaks

Jaguar is celebrating 70 years of its sports cars with an F-type ‘Chequered Flag’ special edition. Available in automatic F-type Coupe and Convertible models with either the entry-level 297bhp four-cylinder, or supercharged V6 engines, the special is based on R-Dynamic models and features a combination of aesthetic and suspension tweaks.

That suspension tweak is a recalibrated ‘comfort’ mode on the adaptive dampers to try smoothen out the low-speed ride. The special edition rides on standard 20-inch wheels, and is available in a limited palette of colours including Caldera Red, Fuji White or Carpathian Grey, matched with a black painted roof on the coupe, or a black fabric soft-top on the convertible.
