Jaguar has launched its high-performance SUV the F-Pace SVR Edition 1988 in India. Only 394 units will be built for the global market by the SV Bespoke division. The Edition 1988 name pays tribute to the racing success of the World Sports – Prototype Championship winning XJR-9 in 1988. Making the limited edition F-Pace SVR Edition 1988 unique is the Midnight Amethyst Gloss paintwork along with the 22-inch optional Champaign Gold Satin forged alloy wheels. The special version of the premium SUV also gets Sunset Gold Satin finish on the Jaguar leaper and Jaguar lettering. Making it super exclusive is the badgeing that says ‘One of 394’ SV Bespoke commissioning graphic that it gets.
In terms of interior, the Premium SUV gets semi-aniline ebony leather upholstery and exclusive Sunset Gold Satin detailing across the dashboard, steering wheel spokes, gear shift paddles, and the heated-and-cooled front performance seats. Also on the feature list are open-pore carbon fiber finishers and the Jaguar leaper, as well as, the horn ring on the steering wheel that comes with Satin Black finish. Further enhancing the premium feel for this exclusive SUV are the illuminated treadplates and dashboard that feature the SV Bespoke and Edition 1988 branding.
Mark Turner, Commercial Director of Special Vehicle Operations, Jaguar, said: “Since its introduction in 2019, the Jaguar F-PACE SVR has established itself as a highly characterful and rewarding high-performance car. Pairing these qualities with a level of SV Bespoke personalization and exclusivity never offered before on F-PACE makes Edition 1988 an even more captivating proposition. With strictly limited availability, we’re confident this will quickly become the most sought-after F-PACE SVR yet.”
Richard Woolley, Special Vehicle Operations Creative Director, Jaguar said: “The design of the F-PACE SVR Edition 1988 is inspired by legendary Jaguar endurance racing cars. The Midnight Amethyst Gloss paintwork appears black until its amethyst undertones are revealed in bright sunshine, emphasizing the SVR’s dynamic exterior. To achieve this dramatic Ultra Metallic Gloss finish, we assessed more than 40 variations to create the desired depth of colour.”
Edition 1988 is also unique in featuring a Sunset Gold Satin Jaguar leaper and script on the tailgate. A laser-etched Edition 1988 logo is applied to each front wing panel. In addition to the F-PACE SVR Black Pack components on Edition 1988, Gloss Black finishes are extended to the door mirror caps, brake callipers, wheel centre caps and the letter R on the SVR badging.
Further enhancing the refined and luxurious interior of F-PACE SVR, which incorporates open-pore carbon fibre finishers, Edition 1988 features semi-aniline Ebony leather upholstery and exclusive Sunset Gold Satin detailing across the dashboard, steering wheel spokes, gear shift paddles and the heated-and-cooled front Performance Seats. The Jaguar leaper and horn ring on the steering wheel receive a Satin Black finish, while subtle SV Bespoke and Edition 1988 branding on the illuminated treadplates and dashboard, completes the package.
Mark Wilkes, Director of Vehicle Personalisation, Jaguar, said: “Edition 1988 started with our SV Bespoke and Jaguar Design teams taking inspiration from the iconic liveries of Jaguar’s race-winning sports cars. The result is a winning combination of colours, textures and features that celebrates sporting success while making the F-PACE SVR even more appealing.”
