The Jaguar F-Type is dying, but not before it launches another special edition
We’ve long known that the F-Type will be discontinued in 2024, but Jaguar will build 150 examples of the race-inspired ZP before production officially ends.
If you believe the 75th anniversary edition Jaguar F-Type The British sports car’s final moments, think again. Before it disappears forever, the F-type will be launched in another special edition, this time a racing-inspired ZP version with a color combination taken from the historic E-Type race car.
Only 150 units of the ZP version will be built in total before production officially ends next year. It will be available in coupe and convertible body styles. The first color combination includes an Alton Blue exterior and a red and black leather interior. The other is a Crystal Gray exterior with Navy Blue and Black interiors. The ZP race car also features white circular graphics on its doors, just like old race cars. The car’s livery is the same series as the restored E-type livery released by Jaguar Classic earlier this year to commemorate the sports car’s debut and first race win in 1961.
Other special touches on the F-type ZP include a white grille surround, special leather seat inserts and badges on the wheels, fenders, side sill panels and instrument panel. There will also be a plaque indicating that the cars are one of the original 150. All ZP models will be equipped with the F-Type Top powertrain, a supercharged 5.0-liter V-8 making 575 horsepower, mated to all-wheel drive and an eight-speed automatic transmission.
