Jaguar will celebrate its last internal-combustion-engined sportscar with F-Type ZP Editions, built during the model’s final year of production (2024), as the company gears up to go fully electric the following year. The cars’ specification mirrors the E-type Project ZP Collection from Jaguar Classic.
Created by SV Besopoke, just 150 F-Type ZPs will be built – each with its own ‘one of 150’ build plaque. You can choose from one of two colour combinations – Oulton Blue Gloss paint with a Mars Red and Ebony interior or Crystal Grey Gloss paint with a Navy Blue and Ebony interior.
Both paint jobs are unique to the F-Type range, and each ZP also sports Porcelain White Gloss hand-painted roundels on the doors, Porcelain White Gloss grille surrounds and Glossy Black exterior highlights, including on the brake callipers. A set of Black Diamond Turned 20-inch forged alloy wheels finish the job.
Based on the R75, the ZP Editions pack Jaguar’s familiar 575PS (423kW), 700Nm (515 lb-ft) supercharged V8, which thrusts this four-wheeled leviathan from 0-62mph in 3.5 seconds and onto a 186mph limited top speed.
The supercharged Jaguar V8’s sound won’t die with the F-Type; the British Library has archived the iconic noise.
Jaguar MD, Rawdon Glover, said: “As Jaguar embarks on the boldest transformation in its history to become a modern luxury all-electric brand from 2025, this is an unrepeatable celebration of Jaguar’s internal combustion sportscar provenance.
“F-TYPE has captivated sportscar drivers for more than a decade, just as the E-type did five decades before it. The ZP Edition is the ultimate celebration of that lineage, joining an illustrious roster of heritage-inspired collector’s editions, including the 2015 Project 7 and 2020 Heritage 60 Edition.”
