Jaguar is commemorating the end of its internal combustion sports car lineage in 2024 with an exclusive limited-edition F-TYPE inspired by two iconic 1960s racing E-types – the F-Type ZP Edition. Just 150 examples will be built and these will be the last internal combustion-engined sports cars designed by Jaguar. These supercharged petrol V8 F-Types feature specially curated interior and exterior details by the personalisation experts at SV Bespoke.
Bespoke exterior and interior
Two F-Type ZP Edition colourways are available, recalling the first race-winning ‘Project ZP’ E-types campaigned shortly after the model’s launch in 1961: Oulton Blue Gloss paint with Mars Red and Ebony duotone leather interior, or Crystal Grey Gloss paint with Navy Blue and Ebony duotone leather interior. Both feature Porcelain White Gloss hand-painted racing-style roundels on the doors and Porcelain White Gloss grille surrounds.
Neither exterior paint colour has been offered on F-Type before. These colours match the two specially formulated paints created for seven pairs of E-type Project ZP Collection cars announced by Jaguar Classic earlier this year.
Unique interiors with horizontal seat fluting, plus Gloss Black exterior accents and Gloss Black brake calipers, complement exclusive F-Type ZP Edition branding details on the fenders, Gloss Black Diamond Turned 20-inch forged alloy wheels, tread plates and dashboard. Each car features a ‘One of 150’ SV Bespoke commissioning plaque.
Powering Jaguar’s last combustion-engined sports car is supercharged V8 engine developing 423kW of power and 700Nm of torque. It feeds its power through an all-wheel drive system with Intelligent Driveline Dynamics (IDD) technology. Jaguar claims the F-Type ZF Edition will sprint from 0 to 100km/h in as little as 3.7 seconds, while top speed is an electronically limited 300km/h.
Only two have been secured for the South African market. It will be available in both Coupé and Convertible body styles, but only the Coupé is available for our market.
