New Jaguar F-Type limited edition celebrates E-Type before it dies in 2024

F-Type ‘ZP Edition’ is the last ever limited edition, marking the end of Jag’s ICE sportscars

Published: 10 Oct 2023

The Jaguar F-Type will die in 2024 to make way for the brand’s shiny new all-electric future. To send it off in style comes the new limited edition F-Type ZP Edition.

Just 150 versions of this particular F-Type will be built, and even then only 10 will be allocated to the UK. As you’d expect of a car marking the end of Jaguar’s internal combustion engined sportscars able to trace a line back to the 1960s, they’re all the massive V8 versions.

Massively supercharged V8 versions. Each ZP Edition will be spun off the range-topping 567bhp petrol V8 F-Type, whose sound has of course been immortalised by the British Library. Performance is unchanged: 0-60mph takes 3.5s, and it’ll go 186mph (where applicable) flat out.

Both the coupe and convertible F-Type ZP Editions will then take inspiration from two “iconic” racing E-Types from the Sixties for its decorative affectations. There are two ‘colourways’ available celebrating the race-winning Project ZP E-Types raced after the sportscar launched in 1961.

You get the choice of either a blue car with a red and ebony leather interior, or a grey car with a blue and ebony leather interior. Because it celebrates a racing E-Type, there are massive roundels hand-painted in white gloss on the doors and grille surrounds, which unconfirmed reports suggest add at least another 100bhp.

The colours are matched to new diamond-turned 20in forged alloys, new tread plates, and a ‘1 of 150’ commissioning plaque.

“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 sports car provenance,” said Jag’s MD Rawdon Glover.

“F-Type has captivated sports car 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.”

Prices for the F-Type ZP coupe start from £134,925, and £138,390 for the convertible.
