Article by Andrew Christian, on August 15, 2014

The Jaguar F-Type Project 7 gets ready to make its debut at Pebble Beach and the manufacturer announced that the brand new car will have a starting price at $165,000 excluding the $925 destination charge. For those who don’t know, the F-Type Project 7 was named in honor of seven Jaguar wins at Le Mans and was created by the Jaguar Land Rover Special Vehicle Operations (SVO).

As expected, the vehicle will be offered in a limited edition and each unit will be powered by the 5.0-liter supercharged V8 engine that produces 575 hp and 680 Nm of torque. The vehicle has a total weight of 1,585 kg and can accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 3.9 seconds (0-60 mph in 3.8 seconds), while top speed is electronically limited at 300 km/h or 186 mph.

Engine is mated to an eight-speed Quickshift transmission which sends the power to the rear wheels through the second-generation Electronica Active Differential (EAD). As standard, the vehicle is offered with the Carbon Ceramic Matrix (CCM) brakes as well as with the Torque Vectoring by Braking (TVbB) for precise handling.

As you can see, the F-Type Project 7 offers only two seats, each featuring rollover hoops. In addition, we find matt-black ceramic coated tailpipes and 20-inch Storm alloy wheels in gloss black.

Behind the front wheels are 398 mm brake discs with six piston monobloc calipers, while the rear wheels get 380 mm discs and four-piston monobloc calipers.

F-Type Project 7 will only be offered in two standard color schemes, Glacier White and Ultra Blue, but as an option Jaguar will offer British Racing Green, Ultimate Black and Caldera Red.
