Jaguar has introduced the new F-Type British Design Edition.

Based on the F-Type S Coupe and Convertible, the special edition features British Design Edition badges and 20-inch Cyclone-style wheels with a unique Satin Grey finish.  The car also boasts a revised color palette that includes Caldera Red, Glacier White, Ultra Blue, and Ultimate Black.  Rounding out the exterior changes are a Super Performance Brake system with red calipers and a standard Sport Design package that includes a gloss black front splitter, extended side skirts, and a rear bumper venturi that helps to reduce drag.

The Jet leather interior largely carries over but designers installed contrast stitching, carbon fiber trim, and 14-way adjustable sport seats with embossed BDE headrests.  Drivers will also find stainless steel tread plates, special badging on the center console, and a 10- or 12-speaker Meridian audio system.

Power is provided by a supercharged 3.0-liter V6 engine that develops 380 horsepower and 339 pound-feet of torque.  The engine is connected to either a six-speed manual or an eight-speed Quickshift transmission.  Models equipped with the latter gearbox can also be equipped with an optional all-wheel drive system.

The Jaguar F-Type British Design Edition will go on sale this spring and pricing will be announced closer to launch.
