Jaguar F-TYPE Project 7: Fastest And Most Powerful Jag Yet

Jaguar’s F-TYPE has catapulted the brand’s global presence to a whole new level and it is now Jaguar’s responsibility to keep the fans interested. Even though it could prove to be a tough job to maintain that fan following, Jaguar has taken a head start with the announcement of the F-TYPE Project 7. Yes, it is the same concept sports car unveiled last year which now has been confirmed to hit the production line.

Developed by Jaguar Land Rover’s Special Operations team, the F-TYPE Project 7 will be the fastest and most powerful Jaguar yet. The British marque plans to produce only 250 units of this new model. The official debut of the F-TYPE Project 7 will take place on June 26 at the 2014 Goodwood Festival of Speed.

Power to the 1585 kg Jaguar F-TYPE Project 7 comes from a 5.0 supercharged V8 unit that produces 575 PS of max power and peak torque of 680 Nm. Such enormous output figures ensure that the car sprints from 0 to 100 km/h in 3.9 seconds and achieve a top speed of 300 km/h (electronically-limited).

All that power and torque is fed to the rear wheels via Jaguar’s 8-speed Quickshift auto transmission and Electronic Active Differential. The list of standard features is comprised of an array of performance-oriented features including Carbon Ceramic Matrix brakes, Torque Vectoring by Braking, bespoke carbon-fibre aerodynamic elements and more.

Each of the 250 F-TYPE Project 7 models will sport a numbered plaque signed by Ian Callum, Director of Design, Jaguar. Available colour will have five metallic options: British Racing Green, Italian Racing Red, Ultimate Black, Ultra Blue and an all-new Glacier White.
