With Junior Welsh Tarmac Rally Champion Jade Paveley behind the wheel, the white convertible powered around a course featuring tight hairpin turns and a challenging slalom section, perfect for demonstrating the car’s hydraulic handbrake and uprated rally-spec chassis.

The car driven on the penultimate day of Wales Rally GB, Britain’s round of the World Rally Championship, is one of only two in the world. The Rally cars were built to celebrate 70 years since the introduction of Jaguar’s first sports car - the XK 120 in 1948. The models pay particular homage to the legendary ‘NUB 120’ which completed three consecutive Alpine Rallies without incurring a single penalty point and won the RAC and Tulip rallies in the early 1950’s.

They were first put through their paces in November 2018 in South Wales to demonstrate their performance credentials on gravel. After almost 12 months of appearances at Jaguar events, the special tarmac stage near the sweeping sands of Colwyn Bay, North Wales, was the perfect place for a final official public appearance. Wales Rally GB finishes in Llandudno on Sunday 6 October.

The Jaguar F-TYPE Chequered Flag Limited Edition is available from £62,720 and can be configured at www.jaguar.co.uk. Read more about the F-TYPE Chequered Flag Limited Edition here.
