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

Article by Christian A., on July 10, 2013

Jaguar is unveiling at the 2013 Goodwood Festival of Speed the new Jaguar Project 7 concept, which is derived from the Jaguar F-Type two-seater convertible sports car. The moniker Project 7 pays tribute to the number of times that Jaguar won the prestigious Le Mans race (seven times) between 1951 and 1990. Its blue finish pays homage to the winning Jaguar D-types of 1956/1957.

Of course, Project 7 boasts of a number of exterior tweaks like a fairing at the back of the driver's head as well as a number of carbon fiber components like a new front splitter, rear diffuser and side skirts. Exterior features also include a restyled front bumper and a lowered windshield and. The new Project 7 also comes with distinct interior elements like a helmet holder and a composite single-seat with racing harness. A custom trim is also included.

Unlike other studies, Project 7 isn’t a static concept. Instead, it is a fully-functional, high-performance sports car underpinned by the all-aluminum of the Jaguar F-Type. It is powered by Jaguar's 5.0-liter supercharged V8 engine that is tuned to deliver 550 PS of output and 680 Nm of torque, which is F-Type V8 S by 55 PS and 55 Nm.

Mike Cross, Chief Engineer for Vehicle Integrity at Jaguar, remarked that in developing the F-Type, their goal was to ensure a connected feel to driver-focused sports car that isn’t just agile and fast, but is also fun. After achieving this goal with the F-Type, Jaguar opted to go further with Project 7. Cross called the Project 7 concept as visceral in its response, its sound and its performance.
