Jaguar F-TYPE Project 7 dynamic debut at Le Mans Classic this weekendThu, 03 Jul 2014
The Jaguar F-Type Project 7 joins the first D-Type at Le Mans this weekend
The Jaguar F-Type Project 7 got its reveal at the Goodwood Festival of Speed last weekend as a D-Type inspired, short-run F-Type with 567 bhp and 502lb/ft of torque.
It was joined by Land Rover’s first Special Operations car – albeit a prototype version with red and black swirly camouflage – the Range Rover Sport SVR, which gleefully took to the hillclimb to demonstrate the incongruity of a big SUV acting like a hot hatch and sounding like a muscle car on steroids.
But what was a little odd is that the RRS SVR happily strutted its stuff, even though it’s only a prototype, but the F-Type Project 7 didn’t turn a wheel in anger. But that will change this weekend.
Jaguar are taking the F-Type Project 7 off to the Le Mans Classic this weekend where it will help the D-Type celebrate its 60th Anniversary alongside the first D-Type ever built.
It doesn’t sound like Jaguar are planning to push the Project 7 to the ragged edge to show its power and dynamics, but at least it will be on the move.
But if you can’t wait until then – and don’t mind looking at video of the F-Type Project 7 in concept guise – watch the video below of the Project 7 Concept on the move.
It’ll look much the same.
