Type rally vehicle celebrates 70 years of Jaguar sports cars

Both rally-specification F Type Convertibles are powered by Jaguar's 2.0-litre petrol engine

While Jaguar doesn't appear to have any plans to sell either of the two, you can opt for the F-Type Chequered Flag Limited Edition, assuming the styling fits your fancy. "These models are a fitting tribute to the XK 120 and all the great Jaguar sports cars since its reveal 70 years ago". They also recall the "NUB 120" XK 120 which won the RAC and Tulip rallies with Ian Appleyard behind the wheel.

The modern F-Type rally cars were unveiled Monday but have already been driven in anger.

Jaguar Design and Engineering has modified both cars to FIA standards, which means each has a roll cage, bucket seats with six-point harnesses and a fire extinguisher.

The rally F-Types feature upgrades to the brakes, suspension and drivetrain including the addition of grooved discs with four-piston calipers front and rear.

The dampers are hand-built and offer three way adjustability, while the springs are softened up because rallying involves rather a lot of rough surfacing.

We're told the pair of Jags ripped up the Walters Arena rally stage in South Wales, and will be doing drifty things at select events over the next few months. For example, three-way adjustable dampers allow them to be tuned for different surfaces. With motorsport-spec wheels and tyres specifically for use on gravel, a limited-slip differential improves power delivery on loose surfaces while a hydraulic handbrake helps drivers tackle hairpin bends.
