The limited edition is inspired by the iconic 1960s E-type race cars, showcasing a blend of power and heritage.
Jaguar has always held a prominent position in the luxury sports car segment, turning heads and winning hearts for over 75 years with their internal combustion engine marvels. And as they gear up to transition fully into the realm of electric luxury by 2025, they’re commemorating their iconic journey with the F-TYPE ZP Edition – the grand finale of their combustion engine sports cars.
Inspired by two legendary 1960s racing E-type vehicles, the F-TYPE ZP Edition isn’t just any swan song. This beast houses a 575HP supercharged V8 engine, showcasing the brand’s engineering prowess one last time. This exclusive edition is limited to just 150 units, making it a coveted piece for aficionados and collectors alike. The care and attention to detail are evident, with two meticulously crafted specifications by the maestros at SV Bespoke.
Rawdon Glover, the Managing Director at Jaguar, captures the sentiment perfectly: “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.” The F-TYPE has long been the modern embodiment of Jaguar’s sports car heritage, captivating the world just as the E-type did half a century ago.
True to its heritage inspiration, the F-TYPE ZP Edition comes in two unique colourways, mirroring the iconic ‘Project ZP’ E-type vehicles of the 1960s. Enthusiasts can opt for the Oulton Blue Gloss paint paired with a Mars Red and Ebony duotone leather interior or the Crystal Grey Gloss paint accompanied by a Navy Blue and Ebony duotone leather combo. The Porcelain White Gloss hand-painted racing-style roundels on the doors and grille surrounds add a touch of nostalgia.
But the exclusivity doesn’t end there. Jaguar has introduced features not seen before on the F-TYPE. The Gloss Black exterior accents, brake calipers, and the 20-inch forged alloy wheels bring an element of modernity, perfectly complemented by the unique interiors, horizontal seat fluting, and the F-TYPE ZP Edition branding.
Performance, of course, remains at the heart of this edition. With 575HP and 516 lb-ft of torque, combined with an all-wheel drive system powered by Intelligent Driveline Dynamics (IDD) technology, this car boasts a breathtaking 0-60mph in a mere 3.5 seconds.
Jaguar’s decision to transition to an all-electric brand signifies the ever-evolving landscape of the automobile industry. Yet, the F-TYPE ZP Edition stands as a testament to their rich legacy, a culmination of decades of passion, craftsmanship, and innovation. It’s the glorious end of an incredible era.
