F-Type ZP Edition end of an era

Back in 2021 Jaguar announced that, from 2025, the iconic formerly-British carmaker would only produce all-electric vehicles, ending more than 75 years of internal combustion sports car production.

With this target date grows ever closer the company has unveiled what will be its last ICE vehicle, an exclusive limited-edition F-Type inspired by two iconic 1960s racing E-types.

Production of the F-Type ZP Edition coupe will take place early in 2024 with a limited run of just 150 examples, of which 24 units have been allocated to Australia.

F-Type ZP edition has been inspired by Jaguar’s Iconic 1960s racing E-types, but with a supercharged V8 engine generating 423kW of power and 700Nm of torque.

Its all-wheel drive system will have Intelligent Driveline Dynamics (IDD) technology taking the coupe from zero to 100 km/h in 3.7 seconds and a top speed electronically limited to 300 km/h.

Exclusive Oulton Blue or Crystal Grey paint colours, with contrasting interiors, mirror the limited-edition E-type Project ZP Collection from Jaguar Classic.

SV Bespoke enhancements include unique interiors, wheel finish, hand-painted racing-style door roundels, F-Type ZP Edition branding and a ‘One of 150’ SV Bespoke commissioning plaque.

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.

There’s Oulton Blue Gloss paint with Mars Red and Ebony duo tone leather interior, or Crystal Grey Gloss paint with Navy Blue and Ebony duo tone leather interior. 

Both feature Porcelain White Gloss hand-painted racing-style roundels on the doors and Porcelain White Gloss grille surrounds.

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.

Australia will receive 12 models finished in Oulton Blue Gloss and 12 in Crystal Grey Gloss, priced from $373,547 plus on road costs, with deliveries expected in the first quarter of 2024.
