First Edition models are available exclusively in one of three colors; Corris Grey, Silicon Silver, or Flux Silver – a unique added cost satin finish exclusive to the First Edition, which will be meticulously hand-sprayed at Jaguar Land Rover Special Vehicle Operations’ Oxford Road Technical Center in the UK.
