Jaguar F-Type Project 7 (US)

Following its global introduction at the 2014 Goodwood Festival of Speed, the U.S. version of the production F-TYPE Project 7 will debut at the 2014 Monterey Car Week. Aptly named to reflect seven Jaguar overall wins at the 24 Hours of Le Mans, F-TYPE Project 7 is inspired by the Jaguar D-Type which celebrates its 60th anniversary this year.

Created by the Jaguar Land Rover Special Vehicle Operations team, the F-TYPE Project 7 will be a limited production all-aluminum, fully road-legal two-seater roadster with bespoke aerodynamic aids. To further emphasize the Jaguar racing heritage, the vehicle will feature a 575hp 5.0 liter supercharged V8 engine with a 0-60mph acceleration time of 3.8 seconds and an electronically-limited top speed of 186mph.

The F-TYPE Project 7 will come to market in two standard color schemes - Glacier White, a metallic white which is the feature color for the model and Ultra Blue, a metallic take on French Racing Blue and the signature color of the Jaguar Land Rover SVO team. British Racing Green, Ultimate Black and Caldera Red will also be available as optional upgrades.
