Jaguar has released a limited edition version of its flagship F-Type sports car, designating it the F-Type Project 7.
The Project 7 will become Jaguar’s most expensive car in Australia, priced at $339,610 before on road costs – not that it matters, because just 10 cars will land on our shores and all are already sold.
Under the bonnet is an uprated version of Jaguar’s 5.0-litre supercharged V8, which pumps out 423kW of power and 700Nm of torque, pipping the current F-Type R convertible 404kW and 680Nm. Jaguar says this is the fastest, most powerful car it’s ever made, sprinting from 0-100km/h in just 3.9-seconds.
The Project 7 also gets a new aerodynamics package featuring carbon-fibre side skirts, rear diffuser and rear spoiler. Jaguar claims the Project 7 betters the convertible’s downforce by 177%.
There’s also specially tuned sports suspension, carbon ceramic metric brakes and racing seats with a four-point harness available as an accessory, plus a distinctive D-Type-inspired rear fairing behind the driver seat.
