So, being a Jag traditionalist, I couldn't think of a better colour to order my F-Pace in than British Racing Green. It looks stunning on the F-type, so I have been really looking forward to what it will look like on the F-Pace. And then I saw this hideous photo....

Now I am having serious, SERIOUS, second thoughts if this is really what it looks like. I am really hoping this pic is of some other colour....

That looks like it might be really really dirty. And the picture appears to have been taken with a potato.

However, I initially wanted british racing green with the brogue interior, but my salesman talked me out of it, said none of his longtime Jag customers had gone with that color since there is nothing traditional about the Fpace. I went with black, kind of wish I had gone with the dark grey but you can't go wrong with black IMO.

It's kind of hard to tell from the photo because the car is obviously dirty. It's either the British racing green or the dark blue. Either way, I know you guys will never let your F-Paces get that dirty. That is the downfall of black and other dark colors, got to keep em clean to look good.

That is exactly the combo I went with - BRG + Brogue. My dealer was telling me that resale is harder on BRG because it tends to attract a very specific subset of Jag enthusiasts, whereas a lot of the other colours have broader appeal. So it doesn't surprise me your dealer would talk you out of it. I am hoping this really is just a potato picture... I think I am going to stick with the BRG for now since my heart was so set on it.

I'd stake my life that is NOT BRG. That looks like a very very dirty Dark Sapphire Blue taken with an Instamatic camera from 1970 on a cloudy day with a smudged lens.

Personally never been a fan of BRG, but I saw that color on a XJ when I went to the dealer last time and it looked very nice. Way better in person. And not on Instamatics.

If you look closely at the picture, the trim that surrounds the windows is silver. I don't remember seeing that before. I don't like it. I hope it comes black like all the previous photos I've seen.:confused:

Prestige and Portfolio models come with the chrome window surrounds, while R-Sport and S models come with the black. I personally wanted the chrome window surrounds (more traditional Jag), but alas they refused to add them to my S.

Desperately hoping you are right! ALl the BRG Jags I have ever seen in person looked stunning, so I was just hoping that the F-Pace BRG is the same BRG that is used on the other models... not a variation that is lighter or something. I hope I am panicked over nothing ;)

I agree with your salesperson. I am not a traditional Jag buyer and would never have thought about the brand until the F Pace came along. I am exactly the kind of customer that Jag is hoping will buy the F Pace. We are referred to as crossover customers who are willing to try something new. How appropriate for a CUV.

For instance I stayed with the Mesh Aluminium Trim for the S Model because I do not like wood trim on a sports car which is what I perceive the F Pace to be, a very practical sports car or alternatively a CUV with sports car DNA. To me the vehicle says modern, advanced, fast and sleek. It is not classic Jaguar and I do not want classic Jaguar.

Now that I was pulled in to a Jag dealership and will get mine in July, assuming I like the ride and hope for reliability, if I was considering a mid size/full size second vehicle I would consider the XK. I like its distinctive and modern style where before I would have headed straight to a BMW dealer. That is exactly what Jag is hoping for as it goes from traditional to modern and cutting edge.

Interesting enough one vehicle that I did not like is the new XE. The back seat is very cramped as is the ingress and egress from the back. Maybe a great drive and styling exercise but not practical.

Don't get put off by that rotten pic !
The car is obviously dirty and it seems to be coated in plastic wrapping.
Both the BRG and the Sapphire Blue are stunning.

I think this particular image quality is due to out of focus camera on a moving car. The color in real life has more shine and has much more richer appearance. I am not fond of green ( I guess only genius pick it) but this picture does not reprsent that color.

F-Pace S in British Racing Green with Black 22-inch rims and Black Pack for me and can't wait.

I may or may not have already seen an F-Pace S in my specs in person and, while I am not officially permitted to tell you, it may or may not look epic in person. ;)


That pic posted by the OP is horrible. I will say that getting the black pack and black rims is good with BRG. Chrome trim and silver rims doesn't really work too well with it.

That link with a picture of the F-Pace in all colors is great! It begs the question, why would the top 3 premium colors be so much more money? While I know manufacturers will charge extra for some colors, I do not believe I have ever seen a second higher level of colors offered, in this case for an extra $1,500.
