While Jaguar was still waiting to celebrate the Project 7’s official debut in style at the Le Mans Classic, which coincides with Jaguar D-Type’s 60th anniversary, customers in the UK decided not to wait and bought all 65 units allocated to that market.
Jaguar F-Type Project 7 is limited to 250 units worldwide, with only 65 allocated to the UK market where it starts from 135,000 GBP. Inspired by the D-Type and built by JLR’s Special Operations team, the Project 7 is a lighter, tauter, and more powerful version of the F-Type R.
The main highlights of Jaguar F-Type Project 7 include bespoke carbon-fiber aerodynamic aids, a unique suspension tune, 80kg weight reduction, 575HP power output, Carbon Ceramic brakes, Torque Vectoring by Braking and race-inspired seats. 0 to 62 mph in this car is dealt with in 3.9 seconds, but the top speed is limited to 186 mph.
The Project 7 is said to be affecting the normal f-type models big time, as the company is already planning a lightweight version for launch in 2015.
