Added in: Jaguar

The most powerful and fastest production Jaguar to date, F-Type Project 7, will make its debut in front of packed crowds at Le Mans Classic race meeting which is scheduled from 4 to 6 July.

Following its unveiling at Goodwood’s Festival of Speed, where customer interest far exceeded the intended production run of a maximum of 250 units, F-Type Project 7 will complete demonstration laps throughout the Le Mans Classic weekend.

In celebration of the Jaguar D-type’s 60th anniversary – a car which won at le Mans three times and which inspired Project 7’s genesis – F-Type Project 7 will complete its demonstration laps alongside the very first D-type ever built, and with examples of the all-new F-Type R Coupé.

The F-Type Project 7 is a fully road-legal two-seater roadster, which will be built by Jaguar Land Rover’s newly established Special Operations division. Of all aluminium construction and with bespoke carbon-fibre aerodynamic aids, a unique suspension tune, 80kg weight reduction and 566 bhp power output, F-Type Project 7 will deliver improved driving experience, claims the company. Carbon Ceramic brakes, Torque Vectoring by Braking and race-inspired seats are all standard features.
