Project 7 is not a static concept, but a fully-functional, high-performance sports car. The F-Type's rigid all-aluminium architecture provides the perfect starting point, power coming from Jaguar's 5.0-litre supercharged V8 engine in 550PS/680Nm form - an increase of 55PS and 55Nm over the F-Type V8 S.
"The overriding dynamic aim when developing F-Type was ensuring connected feel; it's a true, driver-focused sports car; agile, immediate, fast and, of course, fun. Having achieved that for the road, Project 7 has given us a unique opportunity to go that little bit further. It's visceral in every sense - its response, its sound and its sheer performance. I'm very much looking forward to driving it at Goodwood." Mike Cross, Chief Engineer, Vehicle Integrity,Jaguar In addition to the increase in power - delivered to the rear wheels through Jaguar's eight-speed Quickshift transmission and electronic active differential - Project 7 also features a free-flow exhaust system with a ceramic finish, 10mm lower ride height and a unique spring/damper tune.
"Jaguar's sporting bloodline and innovative ambition are perfectly embodied by Project 7, both through its sensual design, and its shattering performance. Project 7's Goodwood debut will provide a great stage to showcase the creativity of our design and engineering teams." Adrian Hallmark, Global Brand Director, Jaguar
