A customised Jaguar F-Type has been unveiled at the 2012 Los Angeles motor show, revealed for the first time in a special-order exterior paint colour.

Drawing a crowd at the British marque’s LA stand alongside the just-revealed big daddy Jaguar XFR-S performance saloon, the 280kW/460Nm supercharged 3.0-litre V6 Jaguar F-Type S sports car finished in Firesand paintwork has been equipped with three optional packages to demonstrate the range of personalisation options available.

The ‘Design’ and ‘Black’ exterior packs combine to offer an enhanced visual impact with the car’s front splitter, extended side sills and rear venturi all body coloured, while the aero splitters, rear valance, central grille beam, grille surround, side power vent surround and mesh are highlighted in gloss black along with the rollover protection bars.

The interior ‘Black’ pack sees the flat-bottomed sports steering wheel receive a black trim finisher, and the vent surrounds, door switch surrounds and instrument cluster dial rings given a gloss black treatment.

        See?  All you need to do is abandon blind adherence to one badge and you can talk some sense.

    This needs to be Boxster money, not 911 money.

    Looks great – evocative and I totally want one. But I have an admission to make.

    I was a bit underwhelmed by it at the motor show. In the flesh some of it’s more generic lines seemed to dominate. That may well be different on the street rather than an indoor stand but I was surprised cause I’m a fan. It may be a colour thing – the one at the show was pale metallic blue and the hotter less subdued colours like red and orange etc might work better for the shape?

    Still want one.
