Jaguar F-Type Project 7 gaycarboys

 

  • F-TYPE Project 7 will make its dynamic debut at Le Mans Classic this weekend in celebration of the Jaguar D-type’s 60th anniversary
  • F-TYPE Project 7 will run throughout the weekend alongside the very first
    D-type, and with F-TYPE R Coupés
  • F-TYPE Project 7 will be Jaguar’s fastest production car to date: with 575PS and 680Nm from its 5.0-litre supercharged V8 petrol engine, it will reach 60mph in 3.8-sec (0-100 km/h in 3.9-sec) with a top speed of 186mph (300km/h)

F-TYPE Project 7 – the most powerful and fastest production Jaguar to date – will make its dynamic debut in front of packed crowds during this weekend’s Le Mans Classic race meeting from 4-6 July.

Following its unveiling at Goodwood’s Festival of Speed – where customer interest far exceeded the intended production run of a maximum of 250 units – F-TYPE Project 7 will complete demonstration laps throughout the Le Mans Classic weekend.

 

In celebration of the Jaguar D-type’s 60th anniversary – a car which won at le Mans three times and which inspired Project 7’s genesis – F-TYPE Project 7 will complete its demonstration laps alongside the very first D-type ever built, and with examples of the all-new F-TYPE R Coupé.

With racing over the weekend split into six grids – each celebrating an era of Le Mans’ history – the F-TYPE Project 7 demonstration laps will take place ahead of qualifying and race sessions for Grid 2. Spanning 1949-1956, this grid will include two Jaguar-entered D-types; drivers are 1988 Jaguar Le Mans winner, Andy Wallace, who will share with Richard Meaden, with Gary Pearson and Chris Harris also in action.

F-TYPE Project 7 is a fully road-legal two-seater roadster, which will be built by Jaguar Land Rover’s newly established Special Operations division. Of all aluminium construction and with bespoke carbon-fibre aerodynamic aids, a unique suspension tune, 80kg weight reduction and 575PS power output, F-TYPE Project 7 will deliver a truly focused driving experience. Carbon Ceramic brakes, Torque Vectoring by Braking and race-inspired seats are all standard features.
