Jaguar South Africa has released local pricing for a pair of 300 Sport special-edition derivatives new to its F-Pace range.
The 300 Sport package can be ordered in two all-wheel-drive performance flavours: the first powered by a turbocharged 2,0-litre petrol engine and the second by a 3,0-litre V6 turbodiesel.
For the record, the four-cylinder petrol model offers 221 kW and 400 N.m, resulting in a sprint from standstill to 100 km/h in a claimed 6,1 seconds (and a top speed of 233 km/h). The oil-burning six-pot, meanwhile, generates the same peak power plus 700 N.m, hitting three figures in a claimed 6,4 seconds and topping out at 241 km/h.
So, how much are we looking at here? Well, the F-Pace 30t AWD 300 Sport is priced at R1 136 731, while the F-Pace 30d AWD 300 Sport comes in at R1 193 034.
Each 300 Sport model features distinctive Dark Satin Grey exterior detailing, applied to elements such as the grille surround, side-window surrounds, side vents, side-mirror caps and door finishers, as well as the rear valance.
They also gain “300 Sport” badging on the grille and tailgate, and are offered in Yulong White, Indus Silver or Santorini Black.
Inside, you’ll find yellow contrast stitching on the instrument panel, centre console and leather seats, while the “300 Sport” logo is repeated on the treadplates, carpets and steering wheel as well as being embossed on the front headrests.
Other standard features include the Touch Pro Navigation with Connect Pro, Jaguar’s 12,3-inch driver display, a Meridian sound system and 14-way adjustable electric front seats.
