Jaguar has officially unveiled the Project 7, an aluminum-bodied roadster that pays homage to Jaguar’s seven victories at Le Mans between 1951 and 1990. It’s based on the current Jaguar F-Type and features a D-type inspired rear fairing with an integrated rollover hoop. Other additions include a new front bumper, an enlarged grille and a ton of carbon fiber details. The rear wing and 20-inch alloy wheels finish things off. The interior is fitted with diamond-quilted leather upholstery, carbon fiber trim and a composite racing seat with four-point harness. The passenger seat is replaced by a bespoke helmet holder that secures a matching Project 7 helmet.
Under the hood, you’ll find a supercharged 5.0-liter V8 engine that delivers 550 HP and 502 lb/ft of torque which is mated to an eight-speed Quickshift transmission. 0-62 mph can be achieved in 4.2 seconds with an electronically-limited top speed of 186 mph.
Jaguar’s dropped a video to show off the Project 7 Concept Roadster which you can find below. Look for this beauty to be showcased in person at the Goodwood Festival of Speed.
