Just 150 examples of the F-TYPE ZP Edition will be the last internal combustion-engined sports cars designed by Jaguar. These 423 kW supercharged petrol V8 F-TYPEs feature specially curated interior and exterior details by the personalisation experts at SV Bespoke.

Janico Dannhauser, Product and Pricing Manager, JLR South Africa, says: “The E-TYPE has captivated drivers and fans for decades, securing iconic status with its proportions and performance. The F-TYPE is poised to become the future classic of the modern-day Jaguar, reminiscent of the iconic status its predecessor achieved in its era.”

The F-TYPE ZP Edition symbolises a modern chapter in Jaguar’s storied legacy within South Africa, echoing the timeless appeal of the brand’s products. Six decades ago, Peter Sutcliffe’s privateer lightweight E-TYPE dominated the Springbok Series races, securing podium finishes in Kyalami 9 Hours, GP Rhodesia, Tractor Trophy East London, and Killarney to name a few.

Now, as enthusiasts in South Africa embrace the latest F-TYPE variants, they pay homage to a rich heritage of racing success and innovation excellence that continues to define Jaguar’s legacy on the global stage.

The F-TYPE ZP Edition is available in both Coupé and Convertible body styles. With 423 kW, 700 Nm of torque and an all-wheel drive system with Intelligent Driveline Dynamics (IDD) technology, performance is exceptional: 0-100 km/h takes only 3.7 seconds, while its top speed is electronically limited to 300 km/h.

Unique interiors with horizontal seat fluting, plus Gloss Black exterior accents and Gloss Black brake callipers, complement exclusive F-TYPE ZP Edition branding details on the fenders, Gloss Black Diamond Turned 20-inch forged alloy wheels, tread plates and dashboard. Each car features a ‘One of 150’ SV Bespoke commissioning plaque.

Janico says Jaguar is on the cusp of a transformation that will see it emerge as an all-electric, modern luxury brand. While these Limited Editions are likely destined for collector's garages, they hope they will emerge from their silken confines to grace the open road and let their engines roar.”
