Jaguar is celebrating the 60th anniversary of the fabled E-type in March 2021 with its new F-TYPE Heritage 60 Limited Edition from SV Bespoke. The E-type is one of the select few cars to ever be exhibited at the Museum of Modern Art in New York and is highly regarded by many as one of the most iconic silhouettes ever to grace the automotive scene.
Like many other events in 2021, Jaguar will mark the 60th anniversary of the E-type but will go the extra mile as the marque introduces its new limited-edition 575PS V8 Supercharged F-TYPE Heritage 60 Edition of which only 60 examples will be available for sale worldwide*, each one hand-finished by the personalisation experts at SV Bespoke.
Described by the luxury carmaker as ‘something that embraces everything that’s British’, the all-wheel-drive sports cars will be specially curated with a commemorative specification to include solid Sherwood Green paintwork, an original E-type colour that hasn’t been offered on any new Jaguar since the 1960s, and extended duo-tone Caraway and Ebony Windsor leather interior trim which isn’t normally available on F-TYPE.
The limited 60-run will also feature a unique aluminium console finisher inspired by the E-type’s rear-view mirror casing, the E-type 60th anniversary logo embossed on the headrests of the lightweight Performance seats and E-type 60 badging shared with the limited-edition E-type 60 Collection vehicles announced by Jaguar Classic earlier this year. Commemorative treadplates, an SV Bespoke commissioning plaque and Caraway-edged carpet mats provide finishing touches.
Celebrating 60 years of the iconic Jaguar E-type is the perfect moment to create our first-ever SV Bespoke limited edition – and the rarest F-TYPE, with just 60 cars available globally. We’ve worked closely with Jaguar Design to develop a theme for the F-TYPE Heritage 60 Edition that pays homage to the E-type in a contemporary way. It’s testament to Jaguar’s sports car design lineage that the 1960s Sherwood Green colour looks as though it was designed for today’s F-TYPE.
The F-TYPE Heritage 60 Edition is a fantastic example of what the SV Bespoke team is capable of. Marrying E-type inspired detailing with new F-TYPE gave us an opportunity to immerse ourselves in the heritage of Jaguar’s legendary sports cars. With unrivalled access to original drawings, paint codes and reference materials, working hand-in-hand with our colleagues at Jaguar Classic, we’ve created a distinctive and highly collectable interpretation of the definitive Jaguar sports car.
