F-Type differences, between the US and the rest of the world?

Are there different options and colors available in different countries, or is what we see here in the US the same for everyone elsewhere?

Discounting the side the wheel is on, I do recall reading the U.S. version had an ever so difference in BHP.

On http://www.jaguar.co.uk/ the specs say 340PS
On http://www.jaguarusa.com/ 340 SAE horsepower (or BHP)

BHP is "Brake Horse Power" - the standard used in the US under the Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE). It is measured by applying resistance (a "brake") on a dynamometer and measuring the heat produced while maintaining rpms as the load is gradually increased.

PS is the European equivalent, sometimes called DIN (Deutesche Institut fur Normung, for 'German Institute for Standardization'). DIN horsepower numbers are approximately 1.38% higher than SAE numbers.
