What is the Jaguar F-Type Project 7?
It is the first vehicle to come from the Jaguar Land Rover's Special Operations division. Unfortunately there will only be 250 units produced.
The roadster has been produced to celebrate a racing Jaguar of old, the three-time Le Mans winning D-type. Powering the limited model is a 5.0-litre supercharged V8 with 423kW/680Nm coupled with an eight-speed automatic gearbox. The car’s body is all-aluminium, bringing the weight to 1 585kg and subsequently improving performance. Expect a 0-100km/h sprint time of 3.9 seconds and a top speed of 300km/h.
So from the fastest and most powerful production Jaguar ever built, to arguably the most beautiful. Last year, Jaguar made an announcement that it would be producing six examples of a lightweight E-Type per year. The vehicles are to be made to the same specification as the last Lightweight E-types produced in 1964.
The reason for the revival is that these are the 'missing' six vehicles from the 'Special GT E-type' project, which started in February 1963 with the objective of building 18 cars. Only 12 of the aluminium-bodied Lightweight E-types were eventually built and the remaining six designated chassis numbers having lain dormant, until now.
