JAGUAR has announced a final ’75’ special edition of its rugged F-Type sports car, taking its leave after nearly a decade on sale.
The F-Type will launch late next year when Jaguar moves to an all-electric lineup.
It marks the end of the British brand’s 75 years of pure combustion sports cars, stretching back to the beautiful XK120.
The 2023 F-Type will be available with a 300hp four-cylinder or a 450hp or 575hp V8 petrol engine – but only the V8s will be available in the new ’75’ trim.
Buyers still have the choice of a coupe with a closed roof or an open convertible model.
The 75 cars get things like unique badging, gloss black wheels, upgraded leather seats, and ’75’ interior decals.
They also have the option of a unique “Giola Green” livery, but you can’t really see it in those weirdly dark official images.
Matthew Beaven, Jaguar Land Rover Chief Designer, Exterior, said: “Jaguar has been known for 75 years for producing exceptional sports cars that offer performance, agility and maximum driver reward.
“The F-Type special editions stay true to these principles, adding unique interior and exterior design details to celebrate this lineage ahead of Jaguar becoming an all-electric brand from 2025.”
Every F-Type in the range is now offered with a model-specific 20-inch alloy wheel as standard.
Inside, the 75 models get a unique silhouette motif on their center console fascia and stainless steel door sills, as well as other black interior accents.
First customer deliveries will begin in January 2023 – the year celebrating 75 years of Jaguar sports cars.
Prices start at just over £62,000 for the four-cylinder petrol coupe and rise to £108,000 for the most powerful V8 convertible.
