Jaguar’s purring F-Pace SUV is now available in South Africa as the feature-packed Chequered Flag special edition. The new edition is inspired by Jaguar’s racing heritage that dates back to 1948 and continues now in Formula E.
The Jaguar F-Pace has proved it’s worth winning two awards at the 2017 World Car Awards, the prestigious World Car of the Year and World Car Design of the Year titles. Built from lightweight aluminium for the perfect balance between ride and handling. The F-Pace features All-Surface Progress Control delivering a smooth ride and traction on all surfaces from the on-demand all-wheel-drive system. Intelligent Drive Dynamics deliver optimum performance and capability.
Key styling features for the F-Pace Chequered Flag is a Sport front bumper and 19-inch five split-spoke wheels finished in Gloss Black, making it appear far more assertive on the road than the regular F-Pace. Contributing to the assertive element is plenty of gloss-black detailing on the exterior from the front grille, to door cladding, the side vents and roof railing.
The Chequered Flag has a petrol engine on offer, the 2.0-litre Ingenium engine that offers up 184 kW, and goes from 0 – 100 km in 7.0 seconds with a top speed of 217 km.
The two-diesel engines for the Chequered Flag model, both 2.0-litre options offering either 132 kW or 177 kW, the former accelerates from 0 – 100 km in exactly 9 seconds, reaching a top speed of 208 km, while the latter does the same in 7.2 seconds and reaches a top speed of 217 km.
Standard features for the F-Pace Chequered Flag include perforated leather seats with 10-way electrical adjustment (and driver seat memory), Apple CarPlay, Touch Pro Navigation Pack, Meridian Sound System, reconfigurable 12.3-inch Interactive Driver Display and Touch Pro infotainment system. Unique to the Chequered Flag is the distinctive meshed-aluminium detailing for the interior and Chequered Flag treadplates.
The Chequered Flag is available in Yulong White, Santorini Black and a newly introduced colour, Eiger Grey.
