Jaguar has released a new eye-catching Black edition car to its range of F-Type sports cars. Available as a coupe or convertible, the R-Dynamic Black specification adds a wide variety of features and equipment.
The Black builds on the standard R-Dynamic package by adding 20-inch alloy wheels finished in gloss black which are bespoke to the model. There’s also the option of Santorini Black, Eiger Grey or Firenze Red exterior colours.
Inside you’ll find sport seats trimmed in Windsor leather, which are both 12-way adjustable and available with a variety of stitching colours too. A monogram pattern - which harks back to heritage Jaguar models - has been stitched into both the seats and door trim, too. Additional details include a suede cloth covering for the 12.3-inch driver display, and aluminum gear shift paddles.
The R-Dynamic Black can only be specified with rear-wheel-drive, but is available with either Jaguar’s 296bhp 2.0-litre turbocharged four-cylinder or 444bhp, 5.0-litre V8 engine. The latter is the more performance-orientated of the pair, bringing a 0-60mph time of 4.4 seconds and a top speed of 177mph.
Julian Thomson, design director at Jaguar, said:
Creating the new F-Type R-Dynamic Black models gave us the opportunity to subtly enhance the way the car looks – inside and out – and at the same time amplify both the luxury and sporting elements of its character. The result is an even more purposeful, focused, distinctive design with real presence, whether you choose the Coupé or Convertible, the four-cylinder or the V8.”
