Jaguar Special Operations product debuting at Goodwood

June 23, 2014

Jaguar will unveil a unique new model at the 2014 Goodwood Festival of Speed later this week, which will be the first product from the company’s recently announced Special Operations division.

Jaguar F-Type Coupe-front

Jaguar Special Operations has been set up to provide customers with bespoke packages that go further than the standard car, in terms of performance and features. It’s a bit like BMW M and AMG for Mercedes-Benz.

Details on what it will be exactly haven’t been revealed. It’s possible it will be based on one of the company’s latest models, such as the F-Type. We could see an uprated engine being introduced, and likely some unique styling and interior enhancements.

In the theme of this year’s event, ‘Addicted to Winning’, Jaguar will also have a number of legendary race cars on display and running up the hill climb this year. Confirmed cars include 1950s D-Types from the Jaguar Heritage Trust, the Group 44 E-Type, Group-A XJS TWR, and the 1988 Le Mans-winning XJR-9 LM.

Models from the current showroom will also be there such as the new F-Type Coupe and XFR-S Sportbrake.
