Jaguar is sending the F-Type into retirement with one final version, dubbed the F-Type ZP Edition. Not only will this new model serve as the final iteration of the F-Type but it will also be Jaguar’s final combustion-powered sports car as it transitions to an all-electric line-up.
The British marque will build just 150 examples of the F-Type ZP Edition throughout 2024, the car’s final production year. It is being built in both Coupe and Convertible body styles and will be offered in just two colorways that pay homage to the E-Type ZP Collection introduced earlier this year. One of these colorways consists of Oulton Blue Gloss paint with a Mars Red and Ebony duotone leather interior while the second colorway consists of Crystal Grey Gloss paint with a Navy Blue and Ebony duotone leather interior.

Regardless of which colorway customers opt for, both have Porcelain White Gloss racing-style roundels on the doors and Porcelain White Gloss front grille surrounds. Additionally, the F-Type ZP Edition will be sold exclusively with a series of gloss black exterior elements, including the wing mirrors and brake calipers. The car also receives exclusive branding on the fenders.
Elsewhere, Jaguar has designed Black Diamond Turned 20-inch forged alloy wheels for the limited-run model and will add a ‘One of 150’ SV Bespoke plaque into the cabin of each example built.
Each and every F-Type ZP Edition to be built has the same flagship powertrain as the F-Type R P575. This means a 5.0-liter supercharged V8 with 575 hp and 516 lb-ft (700 Nm) of torque. Coupled to this engine is an eight-speed automatic transmission that sends power through all four wheels. The car can hit 60 mph (96 km/h) in 3.5 seconds and continue through to an electronically limited top speed of 186 mph (300 km/h).
“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,” Jaguar managing director Rawdon Glover said. “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.”
