It's fun to see how automakers celebrate some of their past icons because sometimes they really knock it out of the park. Color me impressed with theHeritage 60 Edition because I think it does a stupendous job honoring the beloved E-Type of the last century.
Jaguar on Tuesday revealed the special F-Type that it will limit to just 60 cars in honor of the E-Type 60th anniversary. Based on the with the supercharged 5.0-liter V8 and 575 horsepower, the brand's SV Bespoke division took the car under its wings to create a classy cat. The exterior color is Sherwood Green, an OG E-Type color Jaguar hasn't placed on a car since the 1960s. Black 20-inch wheels play well with a mix of chrome and gloss black exterior trim. Matching the champagne-looking green hue is a two-tone Caraway and Ebony Windsor interior. In other words, it's tan and black, but it looks great. A special aluminum console finish also harkens back to the E-Type's rearview mirror casing. A thoughtful, if not obscure, nod.
Plenty of special badges and seat debossing find their way to the car, but one in particular is really cool. The F-Type Heritage 60 Edition and the limited-run,60 models share a badge to link the two together further. An interior plaque will also remind owners their car is one of 60.
Jaguar plans to announce prices and availability at a later date, but for the Jaguar enthusiast, this doesn't look like a special edition to mix. And you can celebrate with either an F-Type coupe or convertible, at that.
