The Details:

• Jaguar Project 7 to debut at 2013 Goodwood Festival of Speed
• Concept vehicle based on the 2014 Jaguar F-TYPE
• Blue paintwork reminiscent of Jaguar D-type cars of 1956/1957
• Power supplied by a 550hp supercharged 5-liter Jaguar V8 engine

The Jaguar Project 7 Concept Car is expected to make its debut at the 2013 Goodwood Festival of Speed on July 12th. This concept vehicle is based on the 2014 Jaguar F-TYPE, an all-new, two-seat convertible sports car and winner of the 2013 ‘World Car Design of the Year’ award.

“Project 7 is a single-seat sports car based on the F-TYPE, with the kind of racing-inspired form that designers dream about. It has one purpose: to be driven fast and enjoyed. Jaguar sports cars are known for exceptional performance and clean design. Project 7 captures that spirit in its purest form.”
-Ian Callum, Director of Design, Jaguar

Project 7’s name acknowledges Jaguar’s seven wins at Le Mans between 1951 and 1990; its blue paintwork is reminiscent of the victorious Jaguar D-type cars of 1956/1957.

“The overriding dynamic aim when developing the F-TYPE was ensuring connected feel; it’s a true, driver-focused sports car; agile, immediate, fast and, of course, fun. Having achieved that for the road, Project 7 has given us a unique opportunity to go that little bit further. It’s visceral in every sense – its response, its sound and its sheer performance. I’m very much looking forward to driving it at Goodwood.”
-Mike Cross, Chief Engineer, Vehicle Integrity, Jaguar

Project 7 is a fully-functional, high-performance sports car. The F-TYPE’s rigid all-aluminum architecture provides the perfect starting point, with power supplied by a 550hp supercharged 5-liter Jaguar V8 engine. This power is delivered to the rear wheels through an eight-speed ZF transmission with “Quickshift” technology, and an active electronically controlled limited slip differential. Project 7 also features a free-flow exhaust system with a ceramic finish, 10mm lower ride height and a custom-calibrated spring/damper tune.
