Hand-built by Jaguar Land Rover’s Special Vehicle Operations division, the F-TYPE Project 7’s 5 Litre supercharged V8 engine has an incredible power output of 575PS and delivers the fastest acceleration of any production Jaguar. Made with a lightweight all-aluminium body, it is able to reach 60mph in just 3.8 seconds.
With the F-Type Project 7’s name paying homage to Jaguar’s seven outright Le Mans wins, its design is based on an F-Type R Convertible, but features a D-type inspired fairing behind the driver’s head and a lightweight, removable roof.
With the windscreen length shortened by 114mm the overall height is reduced by 30.5mm. Add a new front bumper, and downforce-increasing aerodynamic modifications – including a carbon-fibre front splitter, rear diffuser and adjustable rear spoiler – and the Project 7 is born.
There have been some chassis upgrades, too, including bespoke front suspension knuckles which give increased negative camber enabling better turn-in and grip, as well as revised top mounts and front/rear anti-roll bars.
A set of 398mm front and 380mm rear Carbon Ceramic Matrix brakes are fitted as standard, and new 20-inch Continental ForceContact tyres promise grip on the track as well as off it. Fully road-legal, the driver and passenger sit securely in lightweight race-inspired bucket seats, with the addition of four-point racing harnesses to match.
Painted in a tribute to the original Le Mans racers which were run by Ecurie Ecosse, who used the colours of their native Scottish flag, the car can be ordered in five colours: Ultra Blue, Glacier White, Ultimate Black, Caldera Red and British Racing Green, with white or grey graphics available as an additional option. With only up to 250 vehicles being produced globally, F-TYPE Project 7 has been one of the rarest and most sought-after Jaguar cars ever produced. With a £135,000 price tag, they have sold out, with 80 heading to homes in the UK.
