jaguar is celebrating the 60th anniversary of the legendary e-type with a special-edition sherwood green 2021 f-type called the heritage 60 edition. the honorary cars are limited to just 60 examples worldwide, and their special-edition badging is shared with six 3.8-liter e-type 60 collection cars restored by jaguar classic for the occasion.
sherwood green hasn't been an option on a jag since the 1960s, and it's being resurrected to adorn the heritage 60 edition. the limited-edition cars sit on exclusive gloss-black 20-inch wheels and have gloss-black and chrome accents and black brake calipers. the green paint job looks dashing paired with a two-tone caraway (tan) and ebony windsor (black) leather interior with an e-type–inspired aluminum console trim. "e-type 60th anniversary" logos are stitched into the headrests and embellish the doorsills.
jaguar updated its f-type sports car for 2021 with a revised look and engine lineup. the 2021 f-type heritage 60 edition is based on the f-type r model and is available as either a coupe or convertible. both are powered by a 575-hp supercharged 5.0-liter v-8 that sends power to all four wheels through an eight-speed automatic gearbox. during car and driver testing, an f-type r coupe launched to 60 mph in 3.5 seconds on its way to a 11.7-second quarter-mile at 121 mph.
each of the 60 special-edition f-types will be built at jaguar's castle bromwich plant in the united kingdom and rounded off by the sv bespoke team at jaguar's special vehicle operations in warwickshire. they'll arrive in the u.s. in march, although jaguar hasn't announced pricing yet. for reference, the 2021 f-type r starts at $104,350 for the coupe and $107,050 for the convertible.
