Jaguar F-type Project 7 unveiled in Pretoria

The fastest Jaguar ever made, the F-Type Project 7 has finally gone on sale in South Africa


Handmade by Special Vehicle Operations – what AMG is to Mercedes-Benz – the Project 7 pushes the envelope on what the popular F-type can do. It’s powered by stunning 5,0 litre Supercharged V8 engine, which is paired with an eight-speed Quickshift transmission that was specially calibrated for Project 7 going 0-100km/h in just 3,8 seconds and has (an electronically limited) top speed of 300km/h.

By the looks of it, the Project 7 means serious business. Paying homage to the iconic D-Type, Project 7 celebrates the manufacturer’s seven Le Mans wins. The two-seater sports a truncated screen, a mean front bumper, a carbon fibre splitter, sharp side skirts, a rear diffuser, an asymmetrical hump on the rear and, just in case you didn’t believe that it’s a devil on the track, nose strips and racing roundels on the doors.

Before you lament the manual fabric roof, that option shaved 85kg off the weight of the car… and you know what that means.

Things are just as impressive under the hood. It’s fitted with an eight-speed Quickshift transmission, electronic differential, carbon ceramic brakes and unique tune adaptive dampers, which come together to produce a crackling 0-100km/h in just 3,8 seconds.

Only 250 of these were made and only five lucky bastards in South Africa will get to drive them.
