Jaguar is discontinuing the production of performance vehicles, particularly those powered by gasoline. The brand is shifting its focus towards luxury EVs. As part of this transition, Jaguar is bidding farewell to its iconic sports car legacy with the introduction of the final edition of the F-Type, its last internal combustion engine sports car.

From the timeless E-Type to the groundbreaking XJ220, and the F-Type’s debut in 2013 to the almost-launched C-X75, Jaguar has a rich history of crafting exceptional sports cars. With over 87,000 units produced in the last five decades, Jaguar is commemorating this heritage by creating a Final Edition of the F-Type to be preserved as a testament to its legacy.

The ultimate F-Type will be a convertible variant equipped with the brand’s supercharged 5.0-liter V8 engine, making it one of the last vehicles to feature this powertrain as Land Rover transitions to BMW V8 engines. This specific model boasts a distinctive color scheme, with a Giola Green exterior, black roof, black wheels, and Tan Windsor leather interior—a homage to the final E-Type Series III Convertible produced in 1974.

Following public exhibitions and media showcases, the car will join the Jaguar Heritage Collection for safekeeping under the supervision of the Jaguar Daimler Heritage Trust. Although the F-Type will remain available for ordering until early 2025, Jaguar’s era of traditional sports cars will come to a close. However, the brand’s commitment to high performance will continue with the upcoming introduction of a new electric GT sedan next year.
