After unveiling the limited edition F-Type Checkered Flag late last year, Jaguar has announced U.S. pricing that starts from $71,900 for the Coupe and $74,300 for the Convertible.
Compared to regular F-Type versions, which kick off from $61,600 ($64,700 for the Convertible), the Checkered Flag boasts visual enhancements for the exterior as well as the cabin. Powertrain options include a 296 HP turbocharged four-cylinder Ingenium petrol or a 380 HP supercharged V6, both coupled to an eight-speed Quickshift transmission.
What sets the Checkered Flag F-Type apart from the rest of the range are highlights such as the Black Contrast roof on the Coupe, as well as the luxurious Ebony Windsor leather interior with Performance seats, embossed headrests and Dark Brushed aluminum center console trim finisher.
Then there’s the steering wheel, which features a discrete Checkered Flag logo and a red leather band at the 12 o’clock position.
“Perfect proportions, design purity and visual drama – every Jaguar must express these qualities, and none more so than F-Type,” stated Jaguar design boss Ian Callum. “In creating the Checkered Flag Limited Edition we’ve focused on details which enhance the presence of the F-Type and promise of performance – and in doing so, made a fitting celebration of 70 years of beautiful, fast, Jaguar sports cars.”
Other features include the Black Design Pack, 20-inch Gloss Black wheels, red brake calipers, heated and cooled seats and Jaguar’s InControl Touch Pro infotainment with a Meridian sound system, a suite of connected services and Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.
