Adding a touch of elegance, the 2017 Jaguar F-Type British Design Edition F-Type Coupe and Convertible will arrive in U.S. showrooms this spring. Based on the F-Type V6 S model with its 380-horsepower supercharged 3.0-liter engine, a total of 300 units are set for the North American market, each offering a selection of bespoke cosmetic and functional upgrades as well as the choice of rear- or all-wheel drive. "The F-Type is a sports car that excites the senses, with a visual drama that is both individual and very British," said Ian Callum, Jaguar Director of Design. "Creating the British Design Edition gave us the opportunity to subtly enhance the way the F-Type looks -- inside and out."
