It’s a CUV capable of driving upside down while withstanding 6.5 gs of force, and only 2,000 lucky individuals worldwide will call one of its first edition models their own.
Two years ago, in Sept. 2013, Jaguar introduced their C-X17 crossover utility vehicle concept to the world at the Frankfurt Motor Show. Now, at the same show two years later, its production version has been announced to the world. As Sept. 15 press releases from Jaguar Land Rover share, the F-PACE CUV is a new chapter for the English manufacturer, ushering in many positive new advancements.
“With only 2,000 units available globally, we expect the Jaguar F-PACE First Edition to sell out – we are receiving an incredible amount of interest from customers who want to be the first and who want the best,” described Chief Marketing Officer for Jaguar Land Rover Gerd Mauser in one of the releases. This special First Edition run will offer a choice of two colors for the exterior – either the Caesium Blue seen in photos and videos shared with the world, or Halcyon Gold.
22-inch Double Helix Alloy wheels with grey finish and contrast inserts will finish the exterior presence, with sharp accents coming in the form of red brake calipers, LED headlights and a standard S model body kit. The interior is set to feature Houndstooth embossed Windsor Leather Sports seats, special carpet mats and gloss black trim finisher. This final appearance was selected by Jaguar’s designers, as they hand-picked the favorite features and tech options they had tested thus far.
As the second release tells us, this aluminum model’s unveiling has already led to massive doors opening for the marque; more than £120 million, or approximately $185,952,000 USD at time of publication, has been invested in Jaguar as a result of this model.

“This takes the total amount invested in Solihull’s ‘factory within a factory’ to £620mn – the largest investment in the 70-year history of the Midlands based plant,” states the release.
The F-Pace is set to go on sale beginning in early 2016, and will be available to customers worldwide.
