This Cat Causes Uncontrollable Grinning

At its release, the F-Type Project 7 was the fastest Jaguar production car ever built.

It was introduced to the public at the Goodwood Festival of Speed in 2014.

But why 7, I hear you ask.

Well, the ‘7’ represents the number of wins Jaguar achieved at Le Mans, three of which were due to the outstanding performance of the Jaguar D-type.

The Jaguar designers were tasked with recreating a kind of D-type in modern format; the man responsible was Cesar Pieri, who had only been a Jaguarite for a matter of months.

The F-Type Project 7 – ‘where roaring nostalgia meets modern horsepower’

Jaguar built Project 7 with a D-type styled single fairing behind the driver’s head and retro bucket seats.

Unlike the D-type, powered by a 3.4-litre DOHC inline six-cylinder engine capable of producing 250 horses, the Project 7 was fitted with a 5.0-litre V8 producing 575hp.

Only 250 units of Project 7 were hand-built by Jaguar Land Rover’s Special Operations team, making it a sought-after collector’s car.

Overall, the Jaguar F-TYPE Project 7 represents the pinnacle of Jaguar’s performance capabilities, combining stunning design, incredible power, and advanced technology.

Warning: Driving the Project 7 may cause uncontrollable grinning and excessive speeding tickets.
