The Jaguar F-Pace (codename X761) was formally announced at the 2015 North American International Auto Show in Detroit, with sales expected to commence in 2016 following an unveiling at the International Motor Show Germany in Frankfurt in September 2015. The design of the F-Pace is based on the 2013 Jaguar C-X17 concept car. The F-Pace was Jaguar's first SUV-Crossover to hit production that has now been followed by the E-Pace. In 2016 the F-Pace was Jaguar's most popular model. An F-Pace production prototype made its public debut on 4 July 2015, by leading out the Team Sky professional cycle racing team during Le Grand Départ in Utrecht, Netherlands at the start of the 2015 Tour de France. The car made its official public debut at the September 2015 Frankfurt Motor Show, with customers taking delivery of their brand new Jaguar in Spring 2016.
Like many Jaguar's Ian Callum was the exterior designer for the F-Pace. The body structure comprises 80 per cent aluminium, and additional weight savings come from the composite tailgate and magnesium for parts such as the cross-car beam. The body's high torsional stiffness enables the F-TYPE-derived double wishbone front suspension and sophisticated Integral Link rear suspension to perform even better. Our car is optioned with the 3 Litre V6 engine that produces a more than healthy 296BHP and can take driver and passengers from 0-60 in just 6.3 seconds, whilst all being controlled by that wonderfully smooth 8-speed ZF Automatic gearbox.
Our Italian Racing Red F-Pace has completed just 6022 miles since first being registered in June 2016, and has had just the 1 Private Keeper since this date. Despite completing minimal mileage our example has had its first service registered at 3627 miles. The car will be presented to the next owner with the full book pack, Jaguar factory build card listing all those options and Jaguar service print out, alongside a fully functioning key set.
