Jaguar to honor final F-Type before switching to an all EV lineup

Jaguar is switching to an all-electric lineup in 2025

-

Jaguar is celebrating the final model year of the F-Type and 75 years of producing sports cars with a pair of special-edition F-Types for 2023. With Jaguar going to an all-electric lineup in 2025, this will be the swan song for the internal-combustion F-Type.

“For 75 years Jaguar has been renowned for producing extraordinary sports cars that deliver performance, agility and maximum driver reward,” says Matthew Beaven, Jaguar Land Rover Chief Designer, Exteriors. “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.”

The F-Type R-Dynamic is available with a 296 bhp 2.0-liter turbocharged Ingenium four-cylinder engine that sends power to the rear wheels. Jaguar states that the F-type 75 can go from 0-60 mph in 5.6-seconds and has a top speed of 155 mph.

If you are looking for greater performance, the F-Type 75 features a 444 bhp 5.0-liter supercharged V8 available in all-wheel drive or rear-wheel drive. Jaguar says both configurations propel the F-Type 75 from 0-60 mph in 4.4 seconds and has a maximum speed of 177 mph.

Stepping up from that, the F-Type R 75 has a 567 bhp 5.0-liter supercharged V8, but only comes in all-wheel drive. With greater horsepower comes greater performance, so the F-Type R 75 blitzes from 0-60 mph in 3.5-seconds with an electronically-limited 186 mph top speed.

Details for U.S. F-Types are currently not available, and initial U.K. customer deliveries start in January 2023.

This is a proper sendoff for the final internal-combustion F-Type. In both hardtop and convertible configurations, you get a classic Jaguar profile in an honest-to-goodness GT. I’m sad to see the F-Type go, but I am curious to see what Jaguar offers next as it moves to an EV platform.

  1. Imo, it is going to be SO boring when all we can buy is tarted up golf carts. Preowned performance cars are going to skyrocket in price.
