When the option to purchase an original, restored E-type from the factory by Jaguar Classic comes up, this with the means should be quick to jump at the chance. This isn’t any run of the mill limited edition offering however as Jaguar are celebrating not only 60 years of the E-type but two of their most important examples, ‘9600 HP’ and ‘77 RW’.
That’s the basis for the sale and they come as a pair. Yep, 6 pairs of restored 3.8-litre 1960s E-types will be available to discerning customers.
The F-TYPE may not have had the same impact and success as the E-Type, but such game changing vehicles are rare these days given the constraints with which manufacturers need to operate.
It’s hard then, to spawn any kind of cynicism towards the new F-TYPE Heritage 60 Edition from SV Bespoke as it celebrates the 60th anniversary of the E-type. At least Jaguar aren’t mucking about with a low spec model, this being based on the 575PS all-wheel drive F-TYPE R capable of storming the 0-60mph (97kph) run in 3.5 seconds.
The first thing you’ll notice is the solid Sherwood Green paint which harks back to the original 60s E-type palette, undoubtedly with more environmentally friendly paints and processes.
The cars can be specced in Convertible or Coupé body styles with Gloss Black and Chrome accents and sitting on 20-inch Diamond Turned Gloss Black forged alloy wheels.
Inside there’s the usual embossed logos and badging amidst bespoke duo-tone Caraway and Ebony Windsor leather.
Only 60 F-TYPE cars will be available worldwide.
F-TYPE price: £122,500 GBP
