As Jaguar prepares to go electric in 2025, the supercharged V8 F-Type sports car is nearing the end of the road. Orders for the final model year are open now.
Jaguar is preparing to close the curtain on 75 years of petrol-powered sports cars, confirming details of the final Model Year (MY) for the current V8-powered 2024 Jaguar F-Type sports car.
Available to order now ahead of first deliveries in April 2023, the 2024 model-year (MY24) F-Type range will be the last before the Jaguar brand goes all-electric and further upmarket in 2025, as a battery-powered rival for Bentley and Aston Martin.
The three V8 model grades currently available in Australia have been converted to special ’75’ editions, with unique exterior and interior styling touches designed to mark the milestone.
Jaguar does not explicitly say the new 75 editions will be the last F-Types to be built or introduced, only that they represent “the final Model Year update” – leaving the door open for one more special edition before production ends.
Prices start from $183,200 plus on-road costs for the F-Type 75 Coupe (replacing the P450 R-Dynamic Coupe), rising to $188,450 for the F-Type 75 Convertible (replacing the P450 R-Dynamic Convertible), and $284,550 for the F-Type R 75 Coupe (replacing the F-Type R).
The new prices represent increases of $14,285 to $17,302 over the Model Year 2023 variants the MY24 75 editions replace.
Standard on the outside of each F-Type 75 are unique 75 badges on the front wheel arches, 20-inch alloy wheels, matrix ‘Pixel’ LED headlights with scrolling indicators, and quad exhaust tips on the R.
The wheel centre caps and grille badge have changed from red to black for the special editions, and the R badge on the flagship variant is accented by black and grey, rather than red and green previously.
Four alloy wheel designs are offered – including a forged option for the R, which runs on wider tyres (265/35-profile front and 305/30 rear), and can be optioned with six-piston 398mm front and four-piston 380mm rear carbon-ceramic brakes with yellow calipers.
Inside, a carry-over 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster joins a unique badge on the centre console, stainless steel sill plates and an Interior Black Pack.
‘Performance’ sport bucket seats fitted to the 75 editions, trimmed in Windsor leather as standard, embroidered with Jaguar leaper or R logos in the headrests, and available with heating and cooling. A black suede headliner is standard, while an Extended Leather Upgrade can be optioned.
Highlights under the skin include aluminium suspension components, revised ball joints for the R, a standard electronic limited-slip rear differential, all-wheel drive in the R, adaptive suspension, and a range of configurable drive modes.
Powering the standard F-Type 75 is a 331kW/580Nm ‘P450’ version of Jaguar Land Rover’s 5.0-litre supercharged petrol V8, driving the rear wheels through an eight-speed automatic transmission for a 4.6-second 0-100km/h time and 285km/h top speed.
Meanwhile, the R gains all-wheel drive and a 423kW/700Nm version of the supercharged V8, translating to a 3.7-second claimed 0-100km/h time and a 285km/h quoted top speed.
The 2024 Jaguar F-Type range is now available to order, ahead of first Australian deliveries in April 2023.
