PRETORIA, South Africa – Jaguar has added a Chequered Flag special edition to its range of F-Pace SUV vehicles available in South Africa, explaining that the inspiration ”came from our rich racing heritage”.

The units have a ‘Sport’ front bumper and gloss-black grille detailing, door cladding, side vents and roof rails, and the same finish on the 19” wheel rims with their five split spokes.
