F-type Project 7 under construction

25.06.2014

JAGUAR has confirmed it will build the F-type project 7, which will make its début at the 2014 Goodwood Festival of Speed and will produce an exclusive run of up to 250units. The F-type Project 7 will introduce new interior and exterior features and it’s said to be Jaguar’s fastest and most powerful production model to date.

The F-type Project 7 is the latest two-seater roadster sports car range, with Jaguar’s powerful 5.0-litre supercharged V8 engine that produces 423kW (18kW increase over the F-type R Coupé) of power and 640Nm of torque. It achieves acceleration of zero to 100km in 3.9 seconds and a top speed of 300km/h. It also features as standard, Carbon Ceramic Matrix (CCM) brakes and Torque Vectoring by Braking (TVbB), an eight-speed Quickshift transmission and a second generation Electronic Active Differential (EAD). Covered in aluminium, the roadster weighs 1 585kg and is 80kg lighter than the F-type V8 S Convertible. It rides on 20-inch Storm alloy wheels in gloss black.

Some extensive modifications on the F-type Project 7 include a front splitter with a lower section made of moulded plastic and an upper section in carbon-fibre. Side skirts, rear diffuser and an adjustable rear spoiler are all made of carbon-fibre, along with the rear deck, bonnet vents, side vent louvers and mirror caps. It also features a switchable Active Sports Exhaust system and the windscreen length is reduced by 114mm, reducing overall height by 30.5mm.

A Bimini roof has been specially designed for F-type Project 7, which clips on to the convertible header rail and can be conveniently folded when not in use and stored in the boot area – which offers 196 litres of luggage space.

The interior features carbon-fibre veneer inserts on the console, an Alcantara steering wheel with leather as an option, aluminium gearshift paddles and bespoke tread plates with the Project 7 logo and two bucket seats.

The F-type Project 7 will be offered in five metallic colours: ultra blue, Italian racing red, British racing green, ultimate black and a new colour, glacier white with grey decal options.
