Jaguar's Final F-Type Joins Heritage Collection, Marking End of an Era

Jaguar marks a significant chapter in its storied history with the inclusion of the final F-Type model into its prestigious Heritage Collection. This event celebrates over a decade of the F-Type’s reign as a symbol of Jaguar’s sports car excellence, known for its sleek design, exhilarating performance, and the option of a powerful V8 engine. As the British automaker shifts gears towards an all-electric future, the last F-Type stands as a testament to Jaguar’s rich legacy and enduring craftsmanship.

The inclusion of the final F-Type in the Heritage Collection is particularly noteworthy as it coincides with the 50th anniversary of the last Jaguar E-Type production. The E-Type, one of Jaguar’s most iconic models, served as a major inspiration for the F-Type. Celebrated as one of the most beautiful sports cars ever made, the E-Type’s legacy lives on through the F-Type, which has now become a part of automotive history.

The final F-Type is a stunning 5.0-liter V8 convertible, finished in Giola Green with a Tan Windsor leather interior and a black soft top. This color scheme not only evokes the classic aesthetic of British sports cars but also mirrors the configuration of the final E-Type produced in 1974, which featured a 5.3-liter V12 engine. This thoughtful homage connects the past and present, highlighting Jaguar’s commitment to honoring its heritage while embracing the future.

As Jaguar prepares to unveil a new all-electric model in 2025, the end of the F-Type era signifies a bittersweet farewell to a beloved sports car icon. The upcoming four-door GT, set to continue Jaguar’s legacy, promises to bring groundbreaking innovation and performance, paving the way for a new chapter in the brand’s history. With this final addition to the Heritage Collection, Jaguar commemorates the F-Type’s impact and looks forward to an electrifying future.
