Finished in a striking shade of French Racing Blue, the Jaguar F-Type Reims Edition draws inspiration from racing.

But, boo-hoo, it’s available only to UK customers, with just 150 units produced — in either P300 or P450 RWD Coupé configurations.

The bespoke exterior shade is reserved only for the F-Type Reims Edition, which becomes the second Jaguar in the series, following the XE Reims Edition late in 2019.

Other exterior enhancements include standard fitment of the Exterior Black Pack, with gloss black side vents, Jaguar script and Leaper, and grille surround.

A set of 20-inch five split-spoke gloss black alloy wheels complete the look.

Inside, Reims Edition is trimmed in a timeless Ebony/Ebony combination, finished with the Interior Black Pack – gloss black door switches, door handles, instrument cluster finisher and more – and some carefully selected options.

Among them buyers will find a Fixed Panoramic Roof, heated seats and the Climate Pack, with two-zone climate control, heated steering wheel and a heated windscreen.

The Reims Edition moniker is inspired by Jaguar’s sporting heritage, specifically the D-type’s maiden victory at the 12 Hours of Reims in 1954.

It marked the start of a truly golden era in Jaguar competition history, and went on to influence all future Jaguar sports cars — from E-type to F-Type.

The E-type itself celebrates its 60th anniversary this year and is commemorated by another very special F-Type produced by Jaguar’s Special Vehicles’ Bespoke team.

The limited-edition F-Type ‘Heritage 60 Edition’ is finished in Sherwood Green – another nostalgic colour choice – and comes with 1960s inspired details, bespoke interior and commemorative badging, befitting the iconic E-type’s diamond anniversary.

Imbued with a little Jaguar racing heritage, Jag’s Rawdon Glover said the F-Type Reims Edition delivers even more value and exclusivity.

“For just 150 UK customers, and in the enormously important year for Jaguar’s sports car history, the F-Type is more enticing than ever,” he said.

Priced from £58,950 (about $104,000 Aussie dollars) the Jaguar F-Type ‘Reims Edition’ is available to order now, with the first customer deliveries taking place in March.
