Jaguar Project 7 breaks cover ahead of 2013 Goodwood Festival of Speed

Article by Christian Andrei, on July 10, 2013

At the 2013 Goodwood Festival Of Speed, Jaguar will bring the Project 7 based on the F-Type. Looking at the pictures, we can say that the new Jag Project 7 is simply amazing. The resemblance with the Jaguar F-Type is obvious but the new Project 7 comes with new design elements such as a new front splitter, side sills, rear diffuser, a lowered windshield as well as a redesigned front bumper.

The interior was also updated and features a composite single-seat with racing harness, a helmet holder and custom trim. For those who don’t know, the Project 7 pays tribute to Jaguar's winning of Le Mans seven times between 1951-1990 and its blue paintwork is reminiscent of the victorious Jaguar D-types of 1956/1957.

According to Jaguar, the Project 7 is not a static concept, but a fully-functional, high-performance sports car powered by a 5.0-liter supercharged V8 engine delivering 550 hp and 680 Nm of torque.

An increase of 55 hp and 55 Nm over the F-TYPE V8 S. Using an eight-speed ‘Quickshift’ gearbox, the Project 7 zooms from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 4.2 seconds and to 60 mph (96 km/h) in 4.1 seconds. Top speed is electronically limited to 186 mph or 300 km/h.
