Jaguar’s F-Type has been a true icon for this British manufacturer.
Launched in 2013, this two-door sports car was seen as a spiritual successor to the lauded E-Type from the 1960s and has proven a popular choice over the years.
Last given a mid-life update in early 2020, Jaguar is now making the final tweaks to the F-Type before it bows out of production, and is introducing the ‘75’ as the ultimate model. Here’s everything you need to know about it.
Celebrates 75 years of Jaguar sports cars
Jaguar has a fantastic history of producing sports cars, and in 2023 the brand celebrates 75 years of producing sporting models, with the XK120 being what the brand considers its first true sports car.
The F-Type 75 aims to build on three-quarters of a century of Jaguar sports cars, and hold true to the brand’s principles of performance, agility and driver pleasure.
It’s the last model year of the F-Type
In 2025 Jaguar is evolving into a purely electric luxury brand, and in doing so we’ll say goodbye to the brand’s internal combustion products, including the F-Type.
The 2023 model year will mark the final year of the F-Type, making this special edition ‘75’ car seem all the more poignant. While there’s an exciting future ahead at Jaguar, more traditional models such as the F-Type should be celebrated while we still can.
Bespoke styling elements
Jaguar hasn’t gone too over the top with the changes for this F-Type 75, but a range of special touches on offer honours the past. For starters, there’s the unique paint option of Giola Green, along with gloss black 20-inch alloy wheels being fitted.
Lightweight Performance seats are also included in the interior, while Jaguar has also enhanced the dynamics with light chassis revisions to enhance the steering feel of the F-Type in its final year.
Full choice of four- and eight-cylinder engines
Jaguar’s latest F-Type is available with a choice of four- and eight-cylinder engines, with the V6 being discontinued at the last update.
But in celebration of previous sports cars, on the 75, it’s available purely with V8 engines. These include the 444bhp 5.0-litre V8 unit while, at the top of the range, is the F-Type R, which uses the same V8 engine but gets a raft of changes to turn the power up to 567bhp, allowing for a 0-60mph time of just 3.3 seconds.
Generous levels of styling equipment
Prices for the F-Type 75 kick off from £78,330 if you go for the Coupe, with the Convertible coming in at £83,920.
You do, however, get a huge amount of equipment for the money, with a few highlights including pixel LED headlights, Windsor leather performance seats that are both heated and cooled and a fantastic 12.3-inch configurable digital driving display.
