The Jaguar F-Type ZP Edition is really the last special Jaguar with a combustion engine

The end of the petrol Jag is near

Expect an obituary in your local newspaper for the Jaguar F-Type next year. After eleven years, the two-door sports car must make way for shiny, new electric cars. Jaguar wants to be completely electric by 2025. To wave goodbye to the F-Type in style, Jaguar is building 150 copies of the car above: the Jaguar F-Type ZP Edition. It is available as a coupe and a convertible.

As you expect – and secretly hope – Jaguar is ending the era of the combustion engine sports car with a big bang. The last F-Type gets a large V8. For even more power, the eight-cylinder gets help from a supercharger. Every Jaguar F-Type ZP Edition gets a 5.0-liter V8 engine that produces 575 hp and 700 Nm.

Performance of the Jaguar F-Type ZP Edition

The engine is also found in the Jaguar F-Type 75, a car that should have been the last sporty petrol-powered Jaguar. Not entirely successful, as it turns out. The performance of the ZP Edition is the same: 0 to 100 km/h takes 3.7 seconds and the top speed is limited to 300 km/h. There should be no differences in performance between the versions with or without fixed roof.

Inspiration for the ZP Edition comes from the E-Types of the sixties. And apparently also from other ZP Editions. Jaguar Classic built a set of E-Types with the same styling a while back. That means: the same paint colors, contrasting interiors and a large white dot on the flanks. The 'roundel' has been put on by hand and adds an extra 100 hp, we think.

Furthermore, the Jaguar F-Type ZP Edition sits on beautiful 20-inch alloy wheels and each car receives a plaque with 'One of 150'. The last special F-Types will be built in 2024 before it leaves the scene. You pay 236,252 euros for the coupe and 241,312 euros for the convertible. These prices include VAT and BPM.
