The stunning Jaguar F-Type Project 7

Hand-built by Jaguar Land Rover’s Special Operations team, the F-Type Project 7 was created to honour the 60th anniversary of the 1954 D-type racer last year. A fairing behind the driver’s head rest is a nod to the D-Type, with the windscreen that has been trimmed by 114 mm for that sleeker profile.

The Project 7 is also fitted with bespoke carbon fibre aerodynamic add-ons, as well as a set of 20-inch gloss black Storm alloy wheels wrapped in Pirelli P Zero or the optional Continental ForceContact tyres.

The special two-seater is motivated by a tuned 5.0-litre supercharged V8 from the F-Type R, giving out 567 hp and 680 Nm of torque. The V8 is then mated to an 8-speed automatic to send all the power to the rear wheels.

The Project 7 blitzes from 0 to 100 km/h in 3.9 seconds, and it will keep on going to a limited top speed of 300 km/h. Bringing it back to a halt is a set of Carbon Ceramic Matrix (CCM) brakes measuring 398 mm up front and 380 mm at the back.

There’s a new suspension setup, along with other handling enhancements such as the Torque Vectoring by Braking (TVbB) that works together with the Electronic Active Differential (EAD) and the car’s Dynamic Stability Control.
