Too often, heritage-inspired limited number models are little more than cynical cash grabs aimed at the car’s biggest fans. Occasionally, though, a cool take comes beside, and very much like the car that inspires it; the new edition Jaguar F-type Heritage 60 model is as cool as it gets.
The UK based car maker is using its 2 seat sports vehicle to honor its most iconic model, giving the 2021 F-type heritage several cues inspired by the legendary model, which celebrates its sixtieth birthday next year.
And while it is easy to home in on the stunning Sherwood Green color or the E-type tagging, this F-type will stand out not for how it seems, but for how unique it is. Jaguar is only creating sixty instances, and if that is not enough, Jag Land Rover’s SV Bespoke group is developing every vehicle, available as either a solid top coupe or a very soft top adjustable, by hand.
This work includes the aforementioned Sherwood Green color, a color that has not appeared in Jag’s Platte since the 60s – its Jag as Guardsman Blue is the ROSSO CORSA and Ford Mustang is to Ferrari. We hope it makes a permanent appearance at a few points in the future because the color is elegant.
Painted with diamond-turned 20” car wheels, chrome detailing, and an extremely special e-type badge on the tail, the outer of the car looks almost as fine as the actual E-type model.
It is easy to see why, as the complete wheel drive car is powered by a beefy 5 liter supercharged V-8 capable of making 575 horsepower and 516 feet lbs torque. Mated to an 8-speed automatic transmission, it can launch 0-60 miles per hour in just 3.5 seconds and has a limited top speed of 186 miles per hour.
Considering the special edition run and the bespoke nature, though, we expect a massive increase on the F-type 103,200 USD starting price.
