Earlier today, we reported the official debut of the Jaguar F-Type Project 7. Now, the F-Type Project 7 is a limited production vehicle and only 250 units would be sold worldwide. So, if you are already setting an alarm to get up early in the morning and head towards a Jaguar showroom, you better keep the phone aside. All 250 units have already been SOLD! Yes, all the 250 F-Type Project 7 cars have already been sold.
But don’t worry. There is something better on the cards. In an interview to automotive website, Autocar UK, Harry Metcalfe, executive of JLR’s new Special Vehicle Operations division said that “Projects 8, 9 and 10 are underway”.
Yes, you heard (or rather read) the man. The Special Vehicle Operations team is already working on new, limited edition projects.
Given that the Special Vehicle Operations division runs across both Jaguar and Land Rover, new models from both brands cannot be ruled out.
The F-Type Project 7 is a fully road-legal two-seater roadster. Powered by a 5-litre V8 engine, the F-Type Project 7 makes 567 bhp and 650Nm of torque. Power is transmitted to the tarmac via a 8 speed ‘Quickshift’ gearbox while the speed will be electronically limited to 300 kmph.
