Jaguar to debut special edition roadster
F-Type Project 7, the latest model in Jaguar's acclaimed F-Type sports car range, made its debut at the 2014 Goodwood Festival of Speed on June 26 in West Sussex, England.
The first Jaguar performance vehicle from Jaguar Land Rover's Special Operations team, F-Type Project 7 will be produced in an exclusive, limited-edition run of up to 250 units. Its distinctive roadster body pays tribute to one of the most famous and iconic racing Jaguars: the three-time Le Mans winning D-type, which in 2014 is celebrating its 60th anniversary year. F-Type Project 7's name pays homage to Jaguar's seven outright Le Mans wins.
The roadster's power comes from Jaguar's 5.0-liter supercharged V-8 engine, which enables the all-aluminum-bodied car to achieve acceleration from 0-60 mph in 3.8-seconds. F-Type Project 7 is fully road-legal and features a removable roof with ample storage space.
A fully road-legal two-seater roadster, the new Jaguar stays true to the design ethos of the Project 7 concept unveiled in 2013, which paid homage to Jaguar's seven Le Mans wins including the distinctive D-type-inspired fairing.
Jaguar will produce the F-Type Project 7 in an exclusive run of up to 250 units, hand-built by Jaguar Land Rover's Special Operations team.
The Jaguar F-Type Project 7 features a stowable roof and 196-liter luggage space.
Among the standard features on the Jaguar F-Type are carbon-ceramic matrix brakes, known as CCM; torque vectoring by braking and race-inspired seats.
First customer deliveries of the Jaguar F-Type will begin in mid-2015.
