JLR to bring Defender V8 and F-Type Heritage Edition to Goodwood


Among its latest cars Jaguar will bring to the 2021 Goodwood Festival of Speed, which will commence on July 8, is the Land Rover Defender V8 and the F-Type 60 Heritage Edition

"Delivering new levels of performance and driver engagement," the Defender with a 525hp five-liter V8 will appear in the British motor show, set in the swanky Goodwood Estate. 


Alongside the Defender V8 is another souped-up off-roader in the Range Rover SV Autobiography Ultimate. The Jaguar Land Rover (JLR) Group said the Rover will showcase "the precision craftsmanship and near-limitless personalization available in the SV Bespoke division."

Range Rover SV Ultimate is finished in a combination of newly formulated satin-finished Orchard Green paintwork complemented by a Narvik Black roof and copper detailing.

The SV Bespoke team’s attention to detail extends to the Gloss Black knurled infill and copper-edged metal Range Rover badging on the hood and tailgate, JLR said. 

As the 2021 Goodwood Festival of Speed always features fast cars lapping a hill climb course, the F-Type 60 Heritage Edition will also lay down rubber there.

The speedy coupe pays homage to the E-type during its 60th anniversary year, JLR said.

A curated commemorative specification includes solid Sherwood Green paintwork, an original E-type color that hasn’t been offered on a new Jaguar since the 1960s, and unique duo-tone leather interior never seen before in an F-Type.

Only 60 examples of the F-Type Heritage Edition will ever be built, with power from Jaguar’s five-liter supercharged V8 producing 568hp.


The F-type will be appearing on the hill alongside other Jaguar models as part of stunt driver Terry Grant’s latest show stopping display.

Having famously completed a barrel roll and a loop-the-loop in a Jaguar, and holding the world-record for the fastest car on two wheels up the hill, Grant will be driving up the hill in a thrilling close-quarters high-speed display with the XE sedan and F-Pace SUV (below) just inches away from each other, JLR added.

Away from the action on the hill, visitors can also drop by the Jaguar Land Rover stand, where the latest models will be on display in addition to pre-booked live drive experiences.

Visitors to the stand will be offered a passenger ride F-Type drift experience, or an off-road adventure in the new Defender on the challenging course around the stand.

Lastly, the Jaguar Vision GT SV concept will make its public debut, which will represent Jaguar’s virtual endurance racer.

The Jaguar Design, SV, and Jaguar Racing teams used detailed analysis of Gran Turismo gamer feedback from online videos and forums, along with many hours of virtual driving to determine exactly how to make the Vision GT SV concept to become the "ultimate electric gaming endurance race car."

JLR said the race car is capable of accelerating from zero to 100kph in just 1.65 seconds, on the way to a maximum speed of 410kph.
