The first documented full Jaguar car hit the market a good 88 years ago in 1935, but the British automaker's roots trace all the way back to 1922, so it’s safe to say it is one of the OG automakers in the game. The automaker’s first electric offering was the I-Pace back in 2018 and since then the transition to electric powerplants has progressed in leaps and bounds. The powers-that-be are so happy with how things are working out that the release of the new F-Type ZP Edition came with an announcement that the car will be the last internal combustion-powered sportscar to leave the Birmingham factory. It’s not going to be the last Jaguar product with an ICE setup though, it will be a few more years before the overlanding models under the Jaguar Land Rover banner go all-electric. Jaguar is planning the boldest transformation in its history by becoming an all-electric brand from as early as 2025. As you’d expect from any decent automaker, to celebrate this milestone, a pair of limited edition F-Type sportscars has been released as a final hurrah to using petrol-fed engines. We now have the Jaguar F-Type ZP Edition, and it can be had in a drop-top or a hard-top (Coupé and Convertible) configuration and the production run is limited to just 150 units. Of course, the cars have a bunch of cool features to set them apart and make them a bit more special. Being the last of their kind, we’re wondering if they will be bought and stored as some kind of appreciating asset or if they.ll actually get some miles on the odo. The SXdrv way would be to drive them, as hard and as often as possible, but hey, that’s just how we roll.

The ZP Edition is a celebration of a storied lineage and it joins a few other well-known heritage-inspired collector’s editions that include the Project 7 from 2015 and the Heritage 60 Edition from 2020. The ZP Edition takes inspiration from a pair of racing Jaguar E-Types from the 60s and to make them legit, they feature specially curated interior and exterior details by the personalisation experts at SV Bespoke. Two colourways are available; Oulton Blue Gloss paint with a Mars Red and Ebony duotone leather interior, or Crystal Grey Gloss paint with a Navy Blue and Ebony duotone leather interior, but both feature Porcelain White Gloss hand-painted racing-style roundals on the doors and Porcelain White Gloss grille surrounds. The unique interiors feature horizontal seat fluting, while outside there are gloss black exterior accents and gloss black brake calipers, F-Type ZP Edition branding, gloss black diamond turned 20-inch forged alloy wheels, tread plates and dashboard. Each car features a ‘One of 150’ SV commissioning plaque. The final petrol-powered engines in these limited-edition Jaguars are the distinct-sounding and powerful supercharged 5.0-litre V8s that supply a rather useful 432 kW and 700 Nm to all four wheels via an 8-speed automatic transmission and Jaguar’s Intelligent Driveline Dynamics (IDD) technology. The limited-edition F-Type ZP can hit 100 in around 3.5 seconds and has an electronically-limited top speed of 300 km/h.

Take a look at the YouTube video that does a good job of flashing the press images associated with the F-Type ZP Edition, a car that Jaguar says is the last one to make use of a conventional internal combustion engine for propulsion, ending around 100 years of drinking fuel and starting a future where all models will have electric power: 2024 Jaguar F-Type ZP Edition Is Brand’s Final Combustion Sports Car | Techno R
