Jaguar has announced last March 19 at Whitley UK two distinctive special edition models for its award-winning F-PACE; the performance-focused 300 SPORT and the feature-packed Chequered Flag. They further enhance the World Car of the Year and World Car Design of the Year‡ award-winning F-PACE range, which offers the unrivalled dynamics and everyday versatility customers expect from a Jaguar performance SUV.
Powered to perform, the 300 SPORT comes with a choice of two 300PS AWD engine options; the 2.0-litre Ingenium petrol and 3.0-litre V6 diesel. The former has 400Nm of torque and can accelerate from 0-100km/h in 6.1 seconds (0-60mph in 5.8 seconds) on its way to a top speed of 233km/h (145mph), while the latter offers 700Nm torque and can accelerate from 0-100km/h in 6.4 seconds (0-60mph in 6.2 seconds) and is capable of 241km/h (150mph)
“The Jaguar F-PACE has established itself as the ultimate performance SUV. Not only does it combine sports car DNA with the practicality of a larger vehicle, it does so with a great aesthetic. The latest special editions build on this visual appeal by enhancing the model’s sporting character to each create something unique. The F-PACE line-up has something for everyone.” says Jaguar Director of Design Ian Callum
The 300 SPORT is identified by distinctive Dark Satin Grey exterior detailing. Starting with the front grille surround, this extends to the side window surrounds, side vents, mirror caps and door finishers, as well as the rear valance. With 300 SPORT badges on the front grille and rear tailgate, it is available exclusively in Yulong White, Indus Silver and Santorini Black.
Step inside and the yellow contrast stitching on the instrument panel, centre console and leather seats provide a unique feel to the interior. The 300 SPORT logo is badged on the treadplates, carpet mats and steering wheel and is also embossed on the front headrests.
Comfort and convenience features include Touch Pro Navigation with Connect Pro that enables the driver to control essential features remotely. Jaguar’s 12.3-inch Interactive Driver Display provides a customisable and intuitive driver interface. A Meridian sound system and 14-way electric front seats also form part of the standard specification.
Customers buying the 300 SPORT will have the option of upgrading the standard specification with a number of additional features. This includes 18-way seats, with the option of heated front and rear seats. Adaptive Cruise Control and Adaptive Dynamics are some of the other features also available.
The Chequered Flag is based on the R-Sport model and comes with a distinctive exterior that includes a sport front bumper and striking Gloss Black detailing on the front grille, door cladding, side vents, and roof rails. The Chequered Flag is available in Yulong White, Santorini Black and in the newly introduced colour, Eiger Grey.
Inside, the cabin has a seamless blend of luxurious materials and crafted finishes, with features including leather trim, meshed aluminium detailing and Chequered Flag treadplates. Occupants also benefit from a range of features such as 10-way electric front seats, Touch Pro Navigation Pack, Meridian Sound System, reconfigurable 12.3-inch Interactive Driver Display and the Touch Pro infotainment system as standard.
A range of 2.0-litre AWD powertrains are available with the Chequered Flag, beginning with the more performance-focused 250PS 2.0-litre AWD Ingenium petrol, which powers the F-PACE from 0-100km/h in 7.0 seconds (0-60mph in 6.6 seconds) and to a top speed of 217km/h (135mph). Diesel powertrains are available in 240PS and 180PS form, with the latter providing up to 49.6mpg (5.7 l/100km).
Every F-PACE features a lightweight aluminium intensive construction and driving dynamics that deliver the ideal balance between ride and handling. All-Surface Progress Control enables smooth, effortless traction on low-grip surfaces, while on-demand all-wheel drive and Intelligent Driveline Dynamics deliver optimum performance and capability.
The F-PACE’s high torsional stiffness enables its F-TYPE-derived double wishbone front- and Integral Link rear suspension to deliver a truly rewarding driving experience. Torque Vectoring and an Electric Power Assisted Steering system – both standard – further enhance agility and response.
A range of powertrain options can be specified, from the efficient 163PS RWD 2.0-litre Ingenium diesel that delivers up to 53.3mpg (5.3 l/100km)* and emits as little as 140g/km of CO2*, all the way to the astonishingly quick, performance-orientated F-PACE SVR with a 5.0-litre 550PS Supercharged V8.
