Jaguar has unveiled its Project 7 concept that will debut at the upcoming Goodwood Festival of Speed.
This aluminium-bodied roadster is a nod at Jaguar’s seven victories at Le Mans between 1951 and 1990. It took just four months for this vehicle to go from paper to production.
This concept makes use of a D-type inspired rear fairing with an integrated rollover hoop. To make sure that this vehicle makes a big impression on the Goodwood crowd, Jaguar has wrapped it in the Ecurie Ecosse livery that decorated the D-Type in 1956 and 1957 at Le Mans.
This vehicle is powered by Jaguar’s supercharged 5,0-litre V8 engine that kicks out 405 kW and 680 N.m of torque. Mated with an eight-speed Quickshift transmission, the Project 7 goes from zero to 100 km/h in 4,2 seconds before it clocks in a top speed of 300 km/h. It utilises a sports-tuned suspension, an electronic rear differential and a free-flow exhaust system.
