(MAHWAH, N.J.) – May 31, 2022 – The exclusive F-PACE SVR Edition 1988 is the first limited edition of Jaguar’s pinnacle high-performance SUV, created by the personalization experts at SV Bespoke. Just 394 examples are available worldwide.
An emotive specification, inspired by Jaguar’s rich racing heritage, includes specially-formulated Midnight Amethyst Gloss paintwork, Champagne Gold Satin 22-inch forged alloy wheels, Sunset Gold Satin exterior and interior detailing, plus a ‘One of 394’ SV Bespoke commissioning graphic.
The Edition 1988 name, and the total number of cars to be built by Jaguar’s Special Vehicle Operations division, pays tribute to the number of laps completed by the winning XJR-9 LM at the 24 Hours of Le Mans in 1988.
“Since its introduction in 2019, the Jaguar F-PACE SVR has established itself as a highly characterful and rewarding high-performance car,” Mark Turner, Commercial Director of Special Vehicle Operations, Jaguar. “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.”
Midnight Amethyst Gloss paintwork is a new color, exclusive to the Jaguar F-PACE SVR Edition 1988.
“The design of the F-PACE SVR Edition 1988 is inspired by legendary Jaguar endurance racing cars,” Richard Woolley, Special Vehicle Operations Creative Director, Jaguar. “The Midnight Amethyst Gloss paintwork appears black until its amethyst undertones are revealed in bright sunshine, emphasising 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 color.”
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 fitted as standard on Edition 1988, Gloss Black finishes are extended to the door mirror caps, brake calipers, wheel center 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 fiber 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.
“Edition 1988 started with our SV Bespoke and Jaguar Design teams taking inspiration from the iconic liveries of Jaguar’s Le Mans-winning sports cars,” Mark Wilkes, Director of Vehicle Personalization, Jaguar. “The result is a winning combination of colors, textures and features that celebrates sporting success while making the F-PACE SVR even more appealing.”
F-PACE SVR is Jaguar’s pinnacle performance SUV. Powered exclusively by Jaguar’s 550HP 5.0-liter V8 supercharged petrol engine, it is capable of accelerating from 0-60mph in 3.8 seconds (0-100km/h in 4.0 seconds) and can reach a top speed of 178mph (286km/h)3.
A comprehensive package of technical enhancements developed and engineered by the experts at Special Vehicle Operations ensures F-PACE SVR delivers a performance-focused driving experience without affecting everyday usability.
A luxurious interior with sliding panoramic roof, head-up display4 and the latest connectivity technologies including wireless device charging and Amazon Alexa integration1, underlines F-PACE SVR Edition 1988 vehicle’s role as a refined SUV with exceptional performance.
