When the Jaguar F-Type was first introduced in 2013, many users doubted the development journey of this sports car model. After 11 years, the era of the rare “spotted jaguar” sports car has come to an end. The British automaker has just launched the F-Type ZP Edition 2024 – the final edition of this model before it is discontinued in 2025.
Similarly to the regular version, the manufacturer offers two main variant options: the coupe and the convertible. Jaguar has transferred the F-Type ZP Edition model to the SV Bespoke department for design and upgrades.
Firstly, customers can choose from two exterior paint options: Oulton Blue Gloss, a deep blue color, and Crystal Grey Gloss, a white color – inspired by classic E-Type cars.
In combination with the blue color, the interior cabin features red and black tones, while the remaining model uses blue and black for the interior. Jaguar stated that these colors have never appeared on the F-Type before.
Each Jaguar F-Type ZP Edition 2024 comes with a bright white round emblem on the door, honoring the E-Type racing cars launched in 1961. The white-painted grille surround adds another highlight to the exterior.
In addition, the car uses a newly designed multi-spoke alloy wheel set with a size of 20 inches. Other details such as the mirror caps and brake calipers are painted black. Inside the cabin, there is a metal plaque engraved with the words “One of 150”, symbolizing the significance of being one of 150 F-Type ZP Edition cars produced worldwide.
The users also receive impressive performance when the car uses the F-Type R P575 drivetrain. The 5.0-liter V8 turbocharged engine on this sports car delivers a power output of 575 horsepower and a maximum torque of 700 Nm. The power is transmitted to all four wheels through an 8-speed automatic transmission. The car can easily reach 96 km/h from a standstill in just 3.5 seconds and has a top speed of 300 km/h.
Starting from 2025, Jaguar has committed to only release electric models to the market. As for the final edition with the F-Type, the price has not been announced, but it can be estimated based on the price of a standard F-Type R P575 in 2024, starting from $114,275, the limited edition version may reach up to $150,000.
Jaguar F-Type is a quite selective sports car model in Vietnam. Before the Jaguar distributor stopped selling it, this model had a starting price of VND 5.65 billion for the 2021 version. Due to its high price and unimpressive design and performance, the number of new F-Type cars in Vietnam can be counted on one hand.
