Jaguar F-Pace 300 Sport and Chequered Flag Editions launched
Performance-focused 300 Sport Edition and luxury Chequered Flag Edition on sale now
Jaguar has launched two special editions of the F-Pace called the 300 Sport Edition and the Chequered Flag Edition. Both are based on the standard R-Sport trim level but feature styling tweaks and extra kit.
Styling changes for the 300 Sport include grey 22-inch alloy wheels and a colour scheme that combines satin grey highlights for the bodywork with one of three main paint colours called Yulong White, Indus Silver and Santorini Black. Inside, contrasting yellow stitching for the interior is intended to create a sporty feel, as are the 300 Sport badges dotted around the cabin.
The 300 Sport comes with Touch Pro Navigation and Connect Pro, which enables you to control some of the car’s features remotely. Buyers also get Jaguar’s 12.3-inch digital instrument display, a panoramic roof, Meridian sound system and 14-way heated electric front seats.
Options include 18-way electric seats, heated rear seats, an opening panoramic roof, adaptive cruise control and Adaptive Dynamics, which allows control of the car’s setup via different driving modes.
The Chequered Flag Edition gets a new front bumper, gloss black detailing for the front grille, door cladding, side vents and roof rails, plus matching 20-inch alloy wheels. Paint choices are the same as with the 300 Sport, with the exception of Indus Silver, which is replaced by a new colour called Eiger Grey.
The interior is a mix of leather and aluminium mesh, along with Chequered Flag badging. The car gets roughly the same kit as the 300 Sport, other than 10- rather than 14-way electric seats. Larger alloy wheels are available as an option.
The F-Pace 300 Sport Edition is available with 296bhp, either from a 2.0-litre petrol or 3.0-litre V6 diesel. The car will do 0-62mph in 6.1 and 6.4 seconds respectively. Pricing for the petrol version starts at £53,980, which is £5,000 more than the petrol R-Sport trim, despite extra kit worth £8,430. The diesel 300 Sport Edition is £500 more than the R-Sport, with extras worth £4,555.
The Chequered Sport Edition is available with a 247bhp 2.0-litre petrol, as well as 178 and 237bhp 2.0-litre diesels. The Chequered Flag edition starts at £46,995 and includes extras worth £5,810 compared with the R-Sport trim but for around £3,400 more. T he 300 Sport Edition and Chequered Flag Edition are available to order now.
As well as introducing the two F-Pace special editions, Jaguar has made efficiency tweaks across the F-Pace range, adding ultra-low resistance tyres in a bid to reduce CO2 emissions. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are now featured in all F-Pace models as standard.
