For nearly a decade, Jaguar Land Rover’s flagship sports car, the F-Type, has been the spiritual successor to Jaguar’s legendary E-Type. The first F-Type concept was shown in 2000, and the production coupe was introduced by Jaguar in 2013. The current generation of the sports car, the F-Type, received a makeover in 2019 that improved its aesthetics and added cutting-edge features. Sadly, it appears that Jaguar will no longer produce this remarkable sports car in favor of embracing electrification. Jaguar’s 75-year history of producing ICE-powered sports cars is celebrated with the release of two limited-edition models: the F-Type 75 and the F-Type R 75.
This is the Best Looking F-Type Jaguar Ever Built. Period
The F-Type has always stood out from the rest of Jaguar’s lineup thanks to its sleek, supercar-like design. The F-Type 75 and F-Type R 75 take styling cues from the standard F-Types, but also feature unique details that mark them out as limited editions. F-Type 75 and F-Type R 75 plaques can be found on the front fenders, and both have the same sleek headlights with the signature J-shaped DRLs. Both versions will also ride on unique 20-inch wheels with a 10-spoke design in gloss black. The previewed model stands out from the crowd thanks to its unique Giola Green Metallic paint job and other high-end details. Jaguar will gladly install carbon ceramic brakes with yellow calipers on your F-Type 75/F-Type R 75 if you so desire.
Stainless steel door sills and a silhouette motif on the dashboard above the 10-inch touchscreen display are two examples of the interior’s finer details. Windsor leather covers the brand-new sports seats. Additionally, the headliner was upgraded to a suede-cloth material, and the cabin was made significantly darker. Standard features include a 12.3-inch driver information display, a leather-wrapped steering wheel with paddle shifters, and a jam-packed center console.
Last Hurrah to the Supercharged V-8
In contrast to other markets, the United States only offers V-8 powertrains, not the 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder found in other countries. However, there are no upgraded powertrains in the special edition. Instead, a standard 5.0-liter supercharged V-8 produces 444 horsepower and 428 pound-feet of torque in the F-Type 75. When you upgrade to the F-Type R 75, the same engine produces 575 horsepower and 516 pound-feet of torque. The F-Type R 75 from Jaguar can supposedly reach 60 miles per hour in 3.5 seconds.
Jaguar didn’t boost the 75 special edition models’ engine output, but the automaker did make changes to the chassis to make them feel more sporty. Both have an electronic active rear differential with increased camber and toe stiffness, and Adaptive Dynamics improves steering feedback. Pricing for the F-Type R 75 convertible in the United Kingdom begins at £78,330 ($87,000 approx.) and rises to £108,065 ($119,920 approx. Jaguar has begun accepting orders for the final generation of the F-Type, and those who have already done so can expect to receive their one-of-a-kind F-Type 75 at the start of 2023.
