This week, Jaguar will be showing off its latest variant in the F-Type lineup, Project 7. Named to reflect the seven wins under the automaker's belt in the 24 Hours of Le Mans, the F-Type Project 7 draws inspiration from the Jaguar D-Type, which celebrates its 60th anniversary this year.Created by the Jaguar Land Rover Special Vehicle Operations team, the street-legal roadster Project 7 will be built out of aluminum with bespoke aerodynamic aids. However, this will be a limited production model.Powered by a 575-horsepower 5.0-liter supercharged V-8 engine, the F-Type Project 7 delivers a 0 to 60 time of 3.8 seconds, and has an electronically-limited top speed of 186 mph. Customers will only be able to choose from two standard exterior color options -- Glacier White and Ultra Blue -- while British Racing Green, Ultimate Black, and Caldera Red will be offered as an upgrade.
Customers can expect their models to start arriving in the spring of 2015, but to see it in person before deliveries, the U.S. production version of the Jaguar F-Type Project 7 will debut at the 2014 Monterrey Car Week at Pebble Beach. Pricing for the new model will start at $165,925 including destination and handling.Source: Jaguar
