“The celebrations for the 60th birthday of the iconic Jaguar E-type are the perfect occasion to introduce our first SV Bespoke Limited Edition. With only 60 copies worldwide, it is also one of the rarest. We worked closely with the Jaguar design studio to develop a theme for the F-TYPE Heritage 60 Edition. The goal was a contemporary homage to the legendary role model. It testifies to the continuous design line of Jaguar sports cars that the 60s color Sherwood Green looks as if it had been designed for today's F-TYPE "- (MANAGING DIRECTOR, JAGUAR SV BESPOKE MARK TURNER). Jaguar offers the F-TYPE Heritage 60 Edition as a Coupé and Cabriolet. The vehicles stand on exclusive, diamond-turned 20-inch forged wheels in glossy black and, in addition to black brake calipers, have exterior accents in glossy black and chrome.
