Out of a worldwide production run of just 250 Project 7s, Jaguar Australia has managed to secure ten vehicles – yours for a mere $339,610.
The Project 7 shares its 423kW/700Nm supercharged 5.0 litre V8 engine with the F-Type SVR, and holds the title of fastest production Jaguar ever, with a 0-100 km/h sprint time of 3.9 seconds – at least until the 3.7 second all-wheel-drive SVR arrives.
The unique F-TYPE hoses off speed with the biggest Gerni of them all, Carbon Ceramic Matrix (CCM) brakes. Available as an option on the F-TYPE R Coupe, the ceramic brakes are standard on the F-TYPE Project 7 and comprise discs measuring 398mm at the front, clamped by six-piston monobloc callipers, while the back pair are 380mm discs with four-piston monobloc callipers.
As standard on the Project 7 will be tuned sports suspension, carbon ceramic matrix (CCM) brakes, torque vectoring by braking, and race-inspired seats with four-point harnesses will be available as an accessory.
With an aerodynamics package featuring carbon-fibre side skirts, rear diffuser and rear spoiler, Jaguar claims the Project 7 betters the downforce of the F-Type convertible by 177 per cent. It also features a distinctive D-Type-inspired rear fairing behind the driver.
Therefore design boss Ian Callum thinks they hit a home run with the introduction of the new F-Pace, saying that this might just become the brand’s absolute bestseller. However before it really acquires that cash cow status, the F-Pace still needs to outsell the XJ sedan and well-aged X-Type that has been consigned to the company’s history books.
