Jaguar F-Type Rally Car

Car manufacturers sometimes have strange ways of paying tribute to significant vehicles from their brand history. For instance, when Jaguar wanted to celebrate their legendary XK 120 sports car as a part of their larger 70th anniversary, they didn’t just paint an existing vehicle as an homage. Instead, they revamped one of their modern rides and turned it into the F-Type Rally Car.

Before you get too excited, this is only a one-off (or two-off, if you want to mince words). Based on Jaguar’s F-Type Chequered Flag Limited Edition, these two dirt-devourers are powered by a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine pumping out 296 horsepower. But their modifications from track titans to off-road monsters are extensive — including upgraded suspensions and brakes, the addition of roll cages and racing seats with six-point harnesses, light pods and fire extinguishers on their hoods, and much more. They won’t be going to sale or even to competition, but we hope Jaguar gets them dirty on and off the road, as it would be a tremendous shame to see these beauties waste away in a clean warehouse.
