Jaguar's Grand Farewell to IC-Engined Sports Cars: Introducing the F-TYPE ZP Edition 2024
October 11, 2023
After over seven decades of producing internal combustion sports cars, Jaguar is set to honour this legacy with a limited-edition F-TYPE ZP Edition in 2024, drawing inspiration from the renowned 1960s E-types. As the British automaker transitions towards becoming an all-electric luxury brand by 2025, this edition signals the culmination of their petrol-engined sports car journey.
Jaguar will produce only 150 of the F-TYPE ZP Edition, which boasts a 423kW supercharged V8. The vehicle's aesthetics have been personally handcrafted by the personalisation connoisseurs at SV Bespoke. The interiors and exteriors carry a unique touch, reflecting the design language of the classic 1960s racing E-types.
Rawdon Glover, the Managing Director at Jaguar, mentioned, "As Jaguar undergoes its most significant transformation, moving towards electric mobility, this edition celebrates our internal combustion sports car heritage that spans over decades."
Two exclusive colours will grace the F-TYPE ZP Edition. Customers can choose between the Oulton Blue Gloss paint with Mars Red and Ebony duotone leather interior or the Crystal Grey Gloss paint paired with Navy Blue and Ebony duotone leather. Both variants showcase Porcelain White Gloss hand-painted racing-style roundels on the doors, complemented by Porcelain White Gloss grille surroundings.
Special attention has been given to the interiors, adorned with horizontal seat fluting. The exterior features Gloss Black accents, including the Gloss Black brake calipers, with exclusive branding embellishing the vehicle. Every unit comes with a distinctive 'One of 150' SV Bespoke commissioning plaque.
For the Australian market, 24 coupés have been allocated. Of these, 12 will sport the Oulton Blue Gloss paint, and the remaining 12 will feature the Crystal Grey Gloss paint. The price starts from $373,547 plus on-road costs, with deliveries expected in the first quarter of 2024.
The F-TYPE ZP Edition, available as a Coupé, promises unparalleled performance. With a power of 423kW and a torque of 700Nm, it can accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in merely 3.7 seconds. The top speed is capped electronically at 300 km/h.
