F-TYPE R-Dynamic Celebrates 70 Years of Jaguar Sports Cars


Based on the  F-TYPE R-Dynamic Coupé and Convertible, and available with powerful four- and six-cylinder engines, the Chequered Flag features a range of subtle visual enhancements to the exterior and to the driver-focussed “1+1” cabin.

Highlights include a Black Contrast roof on the Coupé and a luxurious Windsor Leather interior featuring Performance seats with embossed headrests, a Dark Brushed Aluminium centre console trim finisher and – in recognition of Jaguar’s motorsport successes – a steering wheel with a discrete Chequered Flag logo and red leather band to mark 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. In creating the Chequered Flag we’ve focused on details which enhance F-TYPE’s presence and promise of performance – and in doing so, made a fitting celebration of 70 years of beautiful, fast, Jaguar sports cars,” said Ian Callum, Director of Design.

The F-TYPE’s exquisite, perfectly-proportioned exterior is enhanced by the Exterior Black Design Pack, which benefits from SVO extended side sills to subtly increase visual width and give the car even greater presence and poise. The 20-inch Gloss Black wheels with Diamond Turned finish are exclusive to the Chequered Flag and perfectly complement the red finish of the brake calipers. The Chequered Flag’s superbly-crafted Ebony Windsor Leather interior is offered with contrast stitching in a choice of Red or Cirrus. The slimline Performance seats, with optional heated and cooling functionality, feature headrests embossed with Chequered Flag branding.

The Jaguar F-TYPE is the definitive Jaguar sports car and has won 174 awards to date, including World Car Design of the Year. The Jaguar F-TYPE family offers an unrivalled breadth of capability in the sports car segment, from the entry-level 300PS four-cylinder model to Jaguar’s 200mph all-weather supercar – the 575PS
F-TYPE SVR. Jaguar’s sports car lineage spans 70 years, beginning with the XK120. At reveal at the Earls Court Motor Show in October 1948, this beautiful 120mph roadster was the world’s fastest production car.
