Last Roar of the Jaguar: 2024 Jaguar F-Type ZP Edition Closes Combustion Chapter

Published: October 19, 2023 | By: American Luxury Staff

Jaguar is bidding adieu to its sleek F-Type sports car with a final limited edition, the aptly named “ZP Edition.” Only 150 examples will be hand-crafted by 2024, marking the end of an era as Jaguar transitions to an all-electric future. The ZP Edition commemorates the F-Type’s decade-long run as Jaguar’s combustion-powered show pony.

Offered as either coupe or convertible, these exclusive farewell models flaunt bespoke design touches like gloss white roundels and grille surrounds contrasting the body’s deep blue or gray sheen. Their interiors are swathed in two-tone leather evoking the heritage-laced E-Type ZP Collection. Each example bears a unique “One of 150” plaque, elevating its collectible status.

Under the hood lurks the F-Type R’s sonorous 575-horsepower V8 engine, ensuring these limited editions exit in a roar rather than a whisper. With its supercharged power plant, the ZP Edition sprints from zero to 60 in a head-snapping 3.5 seconds.

For Jaguar, this is not just the end of a sports car, but the finale of an era defined by visceral performance and voluptuous styling. As the company transitions to battery-powered vehicles, the ZP Edition commemorates over a decade of the F-Type evoking Jaguar’s spirit as a purveyor of ultimate grand touring machines.

Rawdon Glover, Jaguar’s managing director, calls it “an unrepeatable celebration” of the marque’s sports car heritage. Just as the sensuous E-Type defined the 1960s era of freedom and individualism, the F-Type captured imaginations in the 21st century with its union of power and elegance.

The limited ZP Edition joins the ranks of collectors’ items like the Project 7 and Heritage 60 special editions. For 150 lucky drivers, it promises exclusive ownership of Jaguar’s combustion swan song. As the F-Type rides into a nostalgic sunset, its spirit will transition into Jaguar’s coming era of battery-powered performance. The ZP Edition commemorates a chapter closing, and turning the page to an electrified future painted in tones of zero gasoline.
