The British automaker will eventually move to an electric line-up in 2025, making 2023 the final model year for the iconic sports car.
Jaguar Land Rover is celebrating the 75 years of its F-Type sports car in 2023. The manufacturer has unveiled a special edition F-Type to commemorate this milestone, the F-Type 75. This special edition will soon be making its way to the Indian market in two body styles-coupe and convertible. The British automaker will eventually move to an electric line-up in 2025, making 2023 the final model year for the iconic sports car. The deliveries for the same will start early next year.
The firm unveiled the F-Type 75 special edition with two engine options. One is Jaguar's 5.0-litre supercharged V8 engine, which has 448bhp and 580Nm of torque. It has a top speed of 285km/h and can accelerate from 0 to 100km/h in 4.6 seconds. The other is a 2.0-litre, 4-cylinder, turbocharged engine that generates 296bhp. It has a top speed of 250km/h and can accelerate from 0 to 100km/h in 5.6 seconds. All available engine options are paired to an eight-speed automatic transmission with full manual control via the paddle shifters attached to the steering wheel. An Electronic Active Differential (EAD) is another highlight of the F-Type 75 that will give it sporty handling characteristics.
With blacked-out external chrome accents and alloy wheels, the F-Type 75 can be differentiated from its regular counterpart in terms of exterior design. It features 20-inch gloss black five split-spoke wheels, a unique fender badge, a black grille badge, LED headlights with DRLs, wheel centre caps, a 12.3-inch driver display, and heated and cooled seats. A special Giola Green paint option is also available for the 75th-anniversary edition. The interior of the F-Type has been upgraded thanks to the custom alterations, which include features like an Ebony Suedecloth headliner and Windsor leather upholstery.
The price of the F-Type 75 has not yet been revealed by Jaguar. However, prospective buyers can pre-book the car via the firm's official website.
