The Jaguar F-Type, one of the most beautiful and underrated sports cars, has left the production line. The latest example pays homage to the legendary E-Type from 1974 with a unique color combination and leather interior.

Before we raise a glass in farewell, let's remember the last Jaguar F-Type. One of the most beautiful and underrated sports cars of our time has finally left the production line. Now it's official: This is the last F-Type. Forever.

Paying homage to the legendary 1974 E-Type, the latest Jaguar F-Type comes with a special color scheme and custom leather interior. The exterior is finished in sophisticated Giola Green with a soft black roof, while the interior is adorned with tan Windsor leather. The same configuration graced the last E-Type in 1974.

But it's not just goodbye to the car, but also to Jaguar's iconic 5.0-liter V8 engine. In this latest model, it develops 444 horsepower (331 kW), while the more powerful SVR versions offered up to 575 horsepower (429 kW). With Jaguar's transition to electric vehicles, with the first electric GT vehicle announced for 2025, this is the last V8 engine in the brand's history.

The special feature of this car is that it will not be available to buyers. This F-Type will be donated to the Jaguar Daimler Heritage Trust in the UK. Founded in 1983, the Trust houses hundreds of rare Jaguar and Daimler models dating back to the late 19th century.

Before the end of production, Jaguar provided special versions, such as the 75 Special Edition, with an output of 567 horsepower (423 kW). Limited to only 150 examples worldwide, the ZP Edition paid homage to the E-Type with customized paint and racing badges on the doors. In 2020, Jaguar also introduced the Heritage 60 Edition, which revived the iconic Sherwood Green color.

During its 10-year production run, Jaguar sold 87,731 examples of the F-Type, 15,000 more than the E-Type models sold. And this beautiful sports car will no doubt be missed.

Conclusion: The latest Jaguar F-Type is more than just a car. It is a symbol of the past paying homage to the future. With its refined aesthetics and performance, it has set standards that will be difficult to surpass. With Jaguar's move to electric vehicles, it's a farewell to both the car and the era. And although the F-Type is saying goodbye, its legacy will live on in the hearts of all sports car enthusiasts. The price of this latest model is priceless, as it represents the end of one era and the beginning of a new one. Goodbye, dear F-Type. We were glad to know you.
