NEWS: Jaguar's F-TYPE Project 7 Dynamic Debut @ Le Mans Classic

The incredible, 575PS/680Nm, 5.0-litre supercharged V8 F-TYPE Project 7 – Jag's fastest ever production car – will make its dynamic debut at Le Mans Classic this weekend in celebration of the Jaguar D-type’s 60th anniversary – and how apt is that?
The beastly F-TYPE Project 7 will run throughout the weekend alongside the very first D-type, and with F-TYPE R Coupés.
The F-TYPE Project 7 is claimed to be capable of 0-60mph in 3.8-sec (0-100 km/h in 3.9-sec), with a top speed of 186mph (300km/h)!
Following its unveiling at Goodwood’s Festival of Speed – where customer interest far exceeded the intended production run of a maximum of 250 units – F-TYPE Project 7 will complete a number of demonstration laps throughout the Le Mans Classic weekend.
In celebration of the Jaguar D-type’s 60th anniversary – a car which won at le Mans three times and which inspired Project 7’s genesis – F-TYPE Project 7 will complete its demonstration laps alongside the very first D-type ever built, and with examples of the all-new F-TYPE R Coupé.
With racing over the weekend split into six grids – each celebrating an era of Le Mans’ history – the F-TYPE Project 7 demonstration laps will take place ahead of qualifying and race sessions for Grid 2. Spanning 1949-1956, this grid will include two Jaguar-entered D-types.
The F-TYPE Project 7 is a fully road-legal two-seater roadster, which will be built by Jaguar Land Rover’s newly established Special Operations division. Of all aluminium construction and with bespoke carbon-fibre aerodynamic aids, a unique suspension tune, 80kg weight reduction and 575PS power output, F-TYPE Project 7 will deliver a truly focused driving experience. Carbon Ceramic brakes, Torque Vectoring by Braking and race-inspired seats are all standard features.
Can't wait to see the beast take to the famous circuit. Quite a moment for the big cat brand...
