The final Jaguar F‑TYPE sports car made at the brand’s manufacturing facility in Castle Bromwich will join the Jaguar Heritage collection.

  • Final F‑TYPE to be placed into official Jaguar Heritage collection, 50 years to the day since the last E‑type was produced
  • Jaguar Daimler Heritage Trust (JDHT) adds final coupé and convertible to its collection of iconic examples of the brand’s rich provenance
  • F‑TYPE available to buy until early 2025 as production ends at Castle Bromwich
  • Jaguar is preparing to take its founding vision into a new all‑electric era from 2025

The final Jaguar F‑TYPE sports car made at the brand’s manufacturing facility in Castle Bromwich will join the Jaguar Heritage collection – 50 years to the day since the last Jaguar E‑type drove off the production line.

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.


The singular vision of Jaguar’s founder, Sir William Lyons, was to always be future‑facing, relevant and original. This has been the foundation of Jaguar through almost a century of evolving contemporary British luxury.
Today, as we celebrate F‑TYPE and our 75‑year history of innovative Jaguar sports cars, we are also looking forward to the beginning of a new era. We will reimagine and elevate the Jaguar brand that will be focused on growing client intimacy and engagement, underpinned by our purpose to inspire like no other.


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.
