JAGUAR is marking 70 years of sports car production with a special edition of its current F-Type two-seater

The F-Type Chequered Flag model comes with special badges and branding including logos on the head rests and kick plates.

It is available either with a 300ps four cylinder engine or two higher powered V6 engines with eight speed auto boxes developing 340 or 380ps.

The special F-Type is based on the R Dynamic coupe and convertible models and is priced from £62,355.

Highlights include a black roof on the coupe and a leather interior with sports seats plus a dark brushed aluminium centre console trim finisher and - in recognition of Jaguar's motorsport successes - a steering wheel with discrete Chequered Flag logo and red leather band to mark the 12 o'clock position.

Ian Callum, Jaguar's design chief, said: "In creating the Chequered Flag we've focused on details which enhance F-Type's presence and promise of performance - and in doing so, made a fitting celebration of 70 years of beautiful, fast, Jaguar sports cars."

As well as the special edition model, Jaguar has also announced some changes to the entire F-Type R range which see all models coming with revised damper settings to improve ride.

A rear view camera and front parking aids are now fitted across the F-Type range which starts from £51,925.

Jaguar's first sports car was the XK 120 which was revealed in 1948.
