Jaguar announced Thursday that the F-TYPE Project 7, the latest model in Jaguar’s acclaimed F-TYPE sports car range, will make its debut at the 2014 Goodwood Festival of Speed starting Friday.
The F-TYPE Project 7 is the first Jaguar performance vehicle from Jaguar Land Rover’s Special Operations team. It will be produced in an exclusive, limited-edition run of up to 250 units. The distinctive roadster body, introduced in concept form last summer, 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.
Key design elements include the D-type-inspired fairing behind the driver’s head, shorter windshield, new front bumper, and downforce-increasing aerodynamic modifications – including a carbon-fiber front splitter, side skirts, rear diffuser and adjustable rear spoiler. However, the single-seater concept has been transformed into a two-seater, with rollover hoops for both driver and passenger now integrated into the design. MORE>>>
