“For 75 years Jaguar has been renowned for producing extraordinary sports cars that deliver performance, agility and maximum driver reward. The F-TYPE special editions hold true to these principles, adding unique interior and exterior design details to celebrate this lineage before Jaguar becomes an all-electric brand from 2025.” Matthew Beaven - JLR Chief Design Engineer. To celebrate the milestone, the British automaker has released the final year model of the F-Type as we know it with the release of a special edition that gives a nod to the 75 years of Jaguar sports cars in the form of the F-Type 75 and F-Type R 75. These will be the last sports-oriented cars from the brand before full electrification planned from 2025.

These models designated R 75 and 75 will feature Jaguar’s faithful supercharged 5.0-litre V8 engine. Visually the front-engine two-seater is easily identifiable as an F-Type with super-slim LED headlights,‘Calligraphy’ J signature daytime running lights, a ‘liquid metal’ surfacing on the clamshell bonnet with unique and discreet badges on the front fenders. The car features model-specific gloss black 20-inch wheels as standard in five-spoke- and gloss black diamond-turned 10-spoke designs respectively. The 300 hp 4-cylinder models feature a single, central exhaust while the 450 hp F-Type 75 and 575 hp F-Type R 75 V8s have R-branded quad exhausts.
