Jaguar to Build F-Type Project 7; World Debut at Goodwood Festival of Speed

The F-Type Project 7 will be the most performance-focused derivative of the acclaimed F-Type range and will be Jaguar's fastest and most powerful production model to date.

Jaguar unveiled the F-Type Project 7, its fastest and most powerful production model to date. It will be limited to 250 examples and hand built by Jaguar Land Rover's Special Operations team.

The first deliveries are scheduled for mid-2015.

The F-Type Project 7's distinctive roadster body, introduced in concept form last summer, pays tribute to one of the most famous and iconic racing Jaguars: the three-time Le Mans winning D-type, which in 2014 is celebrating its 60th anniversary year. F-Type Project 7's name pays homage to Jaguar's seven outright Le Mans wins.

F-Type Project 7's power comes from Jaguar's 5.0-liter supercharged V8 engine, now in 567 hp/502 lb-ft form, enabling the all-aluminum-bodied car - which weighs 3,495 lb (1,585 kg) - to achieve acceleration from 0-60 mph in 3.8 seconds (0-100km/h in 3.9 seconds) and an electronically-limited top speed of 186 mph (300 km/h). F-Type Project 7 is fully road-legal, with a removable roof and 196-liter stowage space.

Power is sent to the rear wheels through Jaguar's eight-speed Quickshift transmission and second generation Electronic Active Differential (EAD). Carbon Ceramic Matrix (CCM) brakes, available as an option on the F-Type R Coupé, are fitted as standard on F-Type Project 7, offering powerful, consistent, fade-free braking. Another standard feature is Torque Vectoring by Braking (TVbB) which, working in conjunction with the EAD, enables extremely precise handling. Bespoke carbon-fiber aerodynamic aids and a unique suspension set-up enable F-Type Project 7 to deliver a truly engaging driving experience.

F-Type Project 7's Exterior Design Inspired by D-type Racer

While F-Type Project 7 features performance-focused engineering by Special Vehicle Operations - the engineering and vehicle division of Special Operations - its design has been kept true to the head-turning lines of the original Project 7 concept, which was unveiled last summer.

Key design elements include the D-type-inspired fairing behind the driver's head, shorter windshield, new front bumper, and downforce-increasing aerodynamic modifications - including a carbon-fiber front splitter, side skirts, rear diffuser and adjustable rear spoiler. However, the single-seater concept has been transformed into a two-seater, with rollover hoops for both driver and passenger now integrated into the design.

The F-Type Project 7 rides on 20-inch Storm alloy wheels in gloss black, which customers can opt to have fitted with high-performance Continental ForceContact tires.

F-Type Project 7, whose name acknowledges Jaguar's seven historic Le Mans race wins, will be offered in five metallic colors: Ultra Blue, Italian Racing Red, British Racing Green (all with white decal options), Ultimate Black and a new color, Glacier White (both with grey decal options).

Interior: Lightweight Bucket Seats, Alcantara

The driver and passenger of F-Type Project 7 sit in lightweight race-inspired bucket seats, which are finished in a quilted racing-style diamond pattern. Four-point racing harnesses are available as an accessory. The interior features carbon-fiber veneer inserts on the console, an Alcantara steering wheel (with leather option), machined aluminum gearshift paddles and bespoke treadplates with the Project 7 logo.

Each of the 250 examples will sport a specially numbered plaque, located between the two seats, signed by Ian Callum.
