The final F-TYPE is a 5.0 litre V8 Convertible in Giola Green with a black roof and a Tan Windsor leather interior – similar to that of the 5.3 litre V12 final E-type Series III Convertible built in 1974 and registered as HDU 555N.

This special F-TYPE will be handed to the custodians of Jaguar’s history, the Jaguar Daimler Heritage Trust (JDHT). It will join its E-type predecessor in the official Jaguar Heritage collection and take part in a series of special events and activities this year.

Both F-TYPE and E-type marked the end of their production on almost the same day and on the threshold of a new and exciting era. Just as the last E-type in 1974 heralded the birth of the radical Jaguar XJ-S, the final F-TYPE has been produced as Jaguar readies an even bolder transformation – spearheaded by a four-door electric GT that promises to be a copy of nothing when it is revealed in 2025.

F-TYPE was first launched as a convertible in 2013 and was Jaguar’s first two-seat sports car in almost 40 years. It received universal acclaim and was named 2013 World Car Design of the Year. The coupé made its debut the following year.

87,731 F-TYPEs have been produced and it will continue to be available until early 2025. JDHT records show that Jaguar produced 72,528 E-types, ending with a special run of 50 cars. All but one was painted black, while the second-to-last car was British Racing Green and was supplied to a private Jaguar collector.

Both cars will reside in the JDHT at Gaydon alongside the last series XE, XF, and XF Sportbrake which also finished manufacture recently.
