The Jaguar F-Type‘s timeless design and character have won many hearts all over the world. Inspired by the E-Type, it is no wonder that this car has been and will continue to move heads when it goes down the road. To top that, the folks at Jaguar have done amazing things to this sporty coupé, providing as many as 3 choices of engines and two body styles. Moreover, the company has also made some special cars like Project 7, based on this feline. Jaguar has now made a rally car, based on the 300 PS, 2-litre convertible F-Type which pays homage to the legendary Jaguar XK 120.

The rally-spec example is inspired by the Chequered Flag Limited Edition model and is made to FIA standards. The car gets a protective roll cage, race-seats with a six-point harness, bonnet-mounted light pod and a fire extinguisher. The rally spec car not only looks the part but also get loads of additional equipment, to make it run better on rally stages. The discs get a grooved pattern and four-piston callipers all around. The dampers also have been changed and get a three-step adjustment to suit the needs of the driver. The limited slip-differential distributes power intelligently during low grip situations, making the off-road spec tyres claw ahead with confidence. A hydraulic hand brake helps the driver to position the car perfectly or execute a hairpin in style.
