A final edition of Jaguar’s F-Type will commemorate both the end of its run and 75 years of sports cars from the British marque.
Australian deliveries of the Jaguar F-Type 75 and F-Type R 75 will begin in April 2023.
They will be known as 2024 model year vehicles, and this will be the final model year for the F-Type as the brand moves to an all-electric lineup in 2025.

The change also means the end of the XE, XF, E-Pace and F-Pace.
Jaguar in Australia will offer a 75 coupe and a 75 convertible with rear-wheel drive and a 5.0-litre supercharged V8 engine with an output of 331 kW and 580 Nm of torque and a 0 to 100 km/h acceleration in 4.6 seconds.
These cost $183,200, or $188,450 before road costs.
On it sits the F-Type R 75, which is equipped with a 423 kW/700 Nm strong 5.0-liter V8 compressor and all-wheel drive and reduces the time from 0 to 100 km/h to 3.7 seconds.
It is only available as a coupe and retails for $284,550 before road costs.
All models have an eight-speed automatic transmission.
The 75 Coupé, 75 Cabriolet and R 75 Coupé directly replace the current P450 R-Dynamic Coupé and Cabriolet and the P575 R Coupé.
All models ride standard 20-inch gloss black alloy wheels – five spokes for the 75, ten spokes for the R 75 – and receive various cosmetic upgrades.
For example, the wheel centers and grille badge change from red to black, and the R badge accent colors are black and gray instead of red and green. There’s also a new metallic paint option in Giola Green.
Pixel LED headlights are now standard across the range, while inside, a unique silhouette motif can be seen on the center console and stainless steel door sills.
All models now come standard with Windsor leather upholstery, sleek performance seats and an ebony suede headliner.
The standard equipment list continues to include adaptive suspension, a switchable active exhaust and brake-based torque vectoring, while the R also gets wider, specially developed Pirelli P Zero tires – 265/35/ZR20 and 305/30/ZR20 front and rear, respectively.
The R 75 can be fitted with Jaguar’s carbon ceramic matrix braking system with 398mm discs at the front and 380mm discs at the rear with yellow finish six and four-piston monobloc calipers.
Other options continue to include heated and ventilated front seats and an expanded leather interior, as well as different wheel designs.
All F-Type models are backed by a five-year unlimited mileage warranty with five years of free maintenance up to 130,000 km.
The F-Type was launched in convertible form in 2013, with the coupe following in 2014. It was facelifted in 2019 and received a more aggressive front-end styling.
Offerings have been reduced locally, with the turbocharged four-cylinder and supercharged V6 engines being dropped for 2022.
Jaguar has yet to confirm what its next-generation all-electric range will look like, although earlier this year Autocar reported that the marque will offer a trio of luxury SUVs as part of its repositioning – including, unusually, a three-door model proving to be more exclusive and even more premium Brand.
That would indicate that Jaguar will not offer coupes in its new lineup and will also bid farewell to its sedans – two body styles it has offered continuously for over six decades.
New Jaguars will ride on a new platform called Panthera and will feature an 800V electrical architecture and extensive use of aluminum.
The brand is reportedly planning to build 50-60,000 vehicles a year, a dramatic reduction in production volumes considering Jaguar sold 77,381 vehicles worldwide in the first quarter of this year alone.
Two of these SUVs will reportedly be similar in size to the 4.97m Porsche Taycan Sport and Cross Turismo and will offer a choice of single- and twin-engine powertrains.
The flagship Jag will reportedly feature a 200mm longer wheelbase and standard twin-engine all-wheel drive, with an emphasis on second-row comfort and prices more in line with the Bentley Bentayga.
Jaguar Land Rover Executive Director of Vehicle Programs Nick Collins told Autocar that the designs of Jaguar’s next-generation products have been approved and will be shown to the public in 2024.
