In celebration of the Jaguar D-type’s 60th anniversary- a car which won at Le Mans three times and which inspired Project 7’s genesis- F-Type Project 7 completed its demonstration laps throughout the weekend alongside the very first D-type ever built, and with several examples of the all-new F-TYPE R Coupé.

The highlight of this Classic race was the victory in Grid 3 (for cars from 1957-1961) by the Jaguar-entered D-type driven by Gary Pearson and journalist Chris Harris.

The F-Type Project 7 is a fully road-legal two-seater roadster. The company has managed to reduce about 80kg weight which transfers into a high power output, thanks to all aluminium construction with bespoke carbon-fibre aerodynamic aids and a unique suspension tune. Carbon Ceramic brake, Torque Vectoring by Braking and race-inspired seats are all standard features.

Under the hood, the F-Type Project 7 has 5.0-litre supercharged V8 petrol engine that produces 575PS and 680Nm of peak torque. Paired to an 8-speed Quickshift transmission, the vehicle does 0-100kmph in mere 3.9 seconds and hits an electronically limited top speed of 300kmph.
