Jaguar Project 7 to Debut at Le Mans Classic

By   |   04 July,2014

The Jaguar F-Type Project 7, the most powerful and fastest production Jaguar to date, will make its debut in front of packed crowds during this coming weekend’s Le Mans Classic race meeting from the 5th of July to the 6th of July. This date also coincides with the 60th anniversary of the Jaguar D-Type, a three time winner of the Le Mans race.

The Project 7 was unveiled at the Goodwood Festival of Speed and customer interest for the car far exceeded its planned run of 250 units. At Le Mans, the 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. One of the drivers will be the 1988 Jaguar Le Mans winner, Andy Wallace.

The Project 7 is a fully road-legal two-seater roadster, which will be built by Jaguar Land Rover’s newly established Special Operations division. Fabricated from an all aluminium construction with bespoke carbon fibre aerodynamic aids, a unique suspension tune, 80kg weight reduction, a 5.0 litre V8 engine producing 575 PS of power, 20 inch glossy black alloys, carbon-ceramic brakes, torque vectoring by braking and race-inspired seats, the Jaguar Project 7 will deliver a focussed driving experience.
