One of the biggest stories coming out of the Los Angeles Auto Show this week is the U.S. debut of the Jaguar F-Type two-seater sports coupe and convertible. This supercharged head-turner was unveiled in Paris, but seen for the first time Stateside in LA this week. But we got a surprise that those blokes across the pond didn’t – a first look at the sub-XK performance machine’s new “Black” design pack.
This styling package’s bold signature is a gloss black finish on the grill surround and side vents, a flat-bottomed sport steering wheel, gloss black interior touches, and instrument panel rings. It’s available with the F-Type’s Ultimate Black, Polaris White, Italian Racing Red, Rhodium Silver, Grey and Firesand body colors on the 3.0-liter supercharged V6 model and 5.0-liter supercharged V8 version.
“Good automotive design should be about creating excitement,” says Jaguar design chief Ian Callum.
Well, then, consider the Jaguar F-Type a job well done, Mr. Callum.
