Next year, it’ll have been 60 years since Jaguar launched its iconic E-Type.

To commemorate the diamond anniversary, Jaguar is launching a special edition F-Type Heritage 60 Edition.

As expected, Jaguar will produce just 60 examples. Five coupes will come to Australia, with an indicative price of $333,000 before on-road costs.

Based on the all-wheel drive V8 R, priced at $262,936 before on-road costs, the Heritage 60 Edition shares its 5.0-litre supercharged V8 engine.

The blown V8 produces 423kW of power and 700Nm of torque and propels the F-Type from 0-100km/h in 3.7 seconds.

In a nod to the E-Type, each special edition model will be painted in an original E-Type colour – solid Sherwood Green – that hasn’t been offered on a new Jaguar since the 1960s.

It’s matched with a unique two-tone Caraway and Ebony Windsor leather interior, with all Heritage 60 Editions hand-finished by SV Bespoke.

There are also the expected special edition touches, like logos embossed into the headrests, special badges, sill plates and a commemorative plaque.

Jaguar also says the aluminium console finisher is also inspired by the E-Type’s rear-view mirror casing.

All Australia-bound Heritage 60 Editions will be coupes with gloss-black 20-inch forged alloy wheels, gloss black and chrome exterior accents, and black brake calipers.

The F-Type received a substantial refresh late in 2019, which was headlined by a new front-end design with slimmer headlights.

R models also scored an extra 18kW of power and 20Nm of torque and received tweaks to its suspension and transmission.

Despite its recent update, the F-Type is one of the last remaining Jaguar Land Rover products to run the previous-generation Touch Pro infotainment system. This year, JLR’s new Pivi Pro system has rapidly proliferated throughout the range.

The F-Type has been in production since 2013 and its refresh could keep it in production for a while yet.

It has a while to go before it catches up to the E-Type’s run, though, with its spiritual ancestor produced from 1961 until 1975 when it was replaced by the XJ-S.
