Jaguar Honors The 1960s E-Type With A Limited F-Type Heritage Edition

Dec 9, 2020

Category: Rides

The 1960s were a trying time for the automotive industry, and while the world around it was undergoing a spiritual (and social) evolution, it struggled to keep pace. One vehicle that didn’t, however, was Jaguar’s iconic E-Type — a beautifully-designed model that would ferry the manufacturer, and the automotive world, as a whole, into the future. Now, the outfit is paying its respects to the transcendental platform with a 60th anniversary F-Type catered toward the time period.

The newly-revealed Jaguar F-Type Heritage 60 Edition is slated to arrive in both coupe and convertible trim and will be limited to only 60 models, worldwide. Buyers can expect a full, 1960s-inspired aesthetic treatment, with the addition of tail and sill plates shared directly with Jaguar Classic’s restored Series I 3.8-liter E-Type 60 Collection, a Caraway/Ebony Windsor leather interior, and a Sherwood Green finish that hasn’t been featured on one of the brand’s luxurious vehicles since the period. At its heart, a 568-horsepower V8 engine debuts alongside the F-Type’s newly-revised dampers system, anti-roll bars, and rear suspension knuckles, enhancing driver engagement. To round things out, the car will adopt a suite of contrasting components, including gloss-black wheels, brake calipers, and trim. Look for the F-Type Heritage 60 edition to hit showroom floors in March of 2021.
