Jaguar F-Type Project 7 debuts at Goodwood Festival of Speed 2014
Its distinctive roadster body, introduced in concept form in the summer of 2013, 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.
Jaguar F-Type Project 7′s is powered by a 5.0-litre supercharged V8 engine, now in 575PS/680Nm form, enabling the all-aluminium-bodied car – which weighs 1585kg – to achieve acceleration from 0-60mph in 3.8-seconds (0-100km/h in 3.9-seconds). F-Type Project 7 is fully road-legal, with a removable roof and 196-litre stowage space.
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-fibre front splitter, side skirts, rear diffuser and adjustable rear spoiler.
