Jaguar has announced two new special editions of the F-Pace SUV, increasing standard equipment and sporting appeal in the process.
The 300 Sport edition comes with two choices of engines, both with a neat 300bhp. Either a 2.0-litre Ingenium petrol with 295lbf.ft or a 3.0-litre V6 with 516lbf.ft. Both come with four-wheel drive, whilst the petrol gets to 60 in 5.8 seconds and carries on to 145mph, whilst the diesel takes 6.2 seconds and will peak at 150mph.
It sits on 22″ grey alloys and features dark satin grey exterior detailing, including the grille surround, side vents, mirror caps and the rear valance. 300 Sport badges adorn the grille and rear tailgate and the bodywork exclusively available in Yulong White, Indus Silver and Santorini Black.
The interior gets yellow contrast stitching across the instrument panel, centre console and the leather seating which adds a bit of zest to proceedings. The seats also happen to be heated and 14-way adjustable in the front, and the 300 Sport emblem is embossed onto the treadplates, floor mats, steering wheel and front headrests.
The infotainment comes in the form of Jaguar’s Touch Pro Navigation system, which now includes Apple CarPlay and Android Auto as standard on all F-Pace models. It also benefits from having a 12.3-inch driver information display, Meridian sound system and a panoramic roof.
The Chequered flag edition has a high spec as it comes based on the R-Sport model. The front bumper and black gloss exterior detailing give it a unique road presence. It comes with 20″ alloys as standard, but can be upgraded to 22s. The colours available are Yulong White, Santorini Black and the newly introduced Eiger Grey.
Leather and aluminium adorn the interior, which has all of the same gadgets as the 300 Sport. Where the Chequered Flag differs is under the bonnet, where there are three options. If it’s petrol’s your poison, then you can have a 250bhp 2.0-litre Ingenium unit, with a 6.6 second 0-60 time and a top speed of 135mph. If diesel is more your jam you can have a 2.0-litre unit with either 240 or 180bhp, with the latter achieving up to 41.9mpg.
The two special editions are on sale now, and are available from £53,980 for the 300 Sport and £46,995 for the Chequered Flag edition.
