The exclusive F-PACE SVR Edition 1988 is the first limited edition of Jaguar’s pinnacle high-performance SUV, created by the personalization experts at SV Bespoke. Just 394 examples are available worldwide.

An emotive specification, inspired by Jaguar’s rich racing heritage, includes specially-formulated Midnight Amethyst Gloss paintwork, Champagne Gold Satin 22-inch forged alloy wheels, Sunset Gold Satin exterior and interior detailing, plus a ‘One of 394’ SV Bespoke commissioning graphic.

The Edition 1988 name pays tribute to the racing success of the World Sports-Prototype Championship-winning XJR-9 in 1988.

Since its introduction in 2019, the Jaguar F-PACE SVR has established itself as a highly characterful and rewarding high-performance car. Pairing these qualities with a level of SV Bespoke personalisation and exclusivity never offered before on F-PACE makes Edition 1988 an even more captivating proposition. With strictly limited availability, we’re confident this will quickly become the most sought-after F-PACE SVR yet.

Midnight Amethyst Gloss paintwork is a new color, exclusive to the Jaguar F-PACE SVR Edition 1988.

The design of the F-PACE SVR Edition 1988 is inspired by legendary Jaguar endurance racing cars. The Midnight Amethyst Gloss paintwork appears black until its amethyst undertones are revealed in bright sunshine, emphasising the SVR’s dynamic exterior. To achieve this dramatic Ultra Metallic Gloss finish, we assessed more than 40 variations to create the desired depth of colour.

Edition 1988 is also unique in featuring a Sunset Gold Satin Jaguar leaper and script on the tailgate. A laser-etched Edition 1988 logo is applied to each front wing panel.

In addition to the F-PACE SVR Black Pack components fitted as standard on Edition 1988, Gloss Black finishes are extended to the door mirror caps, brake calipers, wheel center caps and the letter R on the SVR badging.

Further enhancing the refined and luxurious interior of F-PACE SVR, which incorporates open-pore carbon fiber finishers, Edition 1988 features semi-aniline Ebony leather upholstery and exclusive Sunset Gold Satin detailing across the dashboard, steering wheel spokes, gear shift paddles and the heated-and-cooled front Performance Seats.

The Jaguar leaper and horn ring on the steering wheel receive a Satin Black finish, while subtle SV Bespoke and Edition 1988 branding on the illuminated treadplates and dashboard, completes the package.

Edition 1988 started with our SV Bespoke and Jaguar Design teams taking inspiration from the iconic liveries of Jaguar’s race-winning sports cars. The result is a winning combination of colours, textures and features that celebrates sporting success while making the F-PACE SVR even more appealing.

Director of Vehicle Personalisation, Jaguar

About Jaguar XJR-9

Jointly developed by Jaguar and Tom Walkinshaw Racing (TWR), the V12-engined carbon fibre-monocoque Group C and IMSA GTP sports-prototype XJR-9 made its racing debut in 1988, immediately taking victory at the 24 Hours of Daytona. It claimed six wins in the World Sports-Prototype Championship, at Jarama, Monza, Silverstone, Le Mans, Brands Hatch and Fuji.

The XJR-9's Le Mans win was Jaguar's sixth of seven overall victories at the legendary 24 Hours endurance race in France, adding to its previous wins with the C-type and D-type sports cars in 1951, 1953, 1955, 1956 and 1957. The 1988 winner driven by Andy Wallace, Johnny Dumfries and Jan Lammers forms part of the Jaguar Heritage Trust collection today.

A Jaguar XJR-12 would win both Le Mans and Daytona 24-hour races again in 1990.

Jaguar’s successes also included securing World Sports-Prototype Championship titles in 1987, 1988 and 1991 – making this one of the most successful periods in its motorsport history.
