Jaguar to build 2,000 examples of exclusive F-PACE First Edition

Article by Andrew Christian, on September 15, 2015

Jaguar will be releasing an exclusive special edition of the F-PACE -- the Jaguar F-PACE First Edition. With just 2,000 examples set to be produced and available globally, this edition of the F-PACE is truly an exclusive one.

This athletic special edition pays tribute to the C-X17 Concept vehicle, which was the main inspiration for the Jaguar F-PACE. In fact, the First Edition could be considered as the purest depiction of the C-X17 as it features design details exclusive only to the concept.

Customers are treated to luxurious design and technology features seen on the F-PACE such as the In Control Touch Pro infotainment system as well as sports car-derived performance technology including Adaptive Dynamics.

In Control Touch Pro is Jaguar’s super-fast and super-intuitive infotainment system that features contemporary graphics and a 10-inch tablet-style touchscreen. Complementing In Control Touch Pro is an array of specially developed apps as well as a WIFI hotspot that could simultaneously connect eight devices.

On the other hand, the concept’s sporty look is further enhanced by the S model body kit that also comes as standard. Powering the Jaguar F-PACE First Edition is any of the 3.0-litre V6 300PS Diesel or the 3.0-litre V6 380PS Supercharged Petrol engines paired to an eight-speed automatic transmission and features All-Wheel Drive.

According to Gerd Mauser, Chief Marketing Officer for Jaguar Land Rover, the growing interest of people for a production version of the C-X17 has pushed the carmaker to create the F-PACE First Edition.

He noted that with such incredible amount of interest from customers, the carmaker expects to sell out all the 2,000 examples of the Jaguar F-PACE First Edition.

Exterior Design

The First Edition is offered in two distinct colors -- Caesium Blue or Halycon Gold – both of which reflect the C-X17's original two finishes. Customers could also opt for Rhodium Silver or Ultimate Black.

Moreover, the First Edition features distinct design details like Houndstooth-embossed Windsor Leather Sports seats, a Gloss Black trim finisher with British Houndstooth pattern, and special carpet mats.

The First Edition also features 22-inch Double Helix Alloy Wheels with grey finish and contrast inserts.

Also coming as standard for the Jaguar F-PACE First Edition are luxurious features like a sliding panoramic roof, red brake calipers, illuminated metal tread plates, full-LED headlights with LED 'J' blade, configurable interior mood lighting, and Daytime Running Lights.
