    Jaguar Project 7 Concept 2013

    Jaguar's Project 7 concept will make a dynamic debut at the 2013 Goodwood Festival of Speed on 12th July. Project 7 is based on Jaguar's acclaimed F-TYPE, its all-new, two-seater, convertible sports car and winner of the World Car Design of the Year 2013 award.

    Key exterior design changes include a fairing behind the driver's head; bespoke carbon-fibre components - a new front splitter, side skirts and rear diffuser; lowered windshield and restyled front bumper. Project 7's unique interior features a composite single-seat with racing harness, a helmet holder and custom trim. Project 7's name acknowledges Jaguar's winning of Le Mans seven times between 1951-1990 - a record for a British manufacturer - and its blue paintwork is reminiscent of the victorious Jaguar D-types of 1956/1957.

    Project 7 is not a static concept, but a fully-functional, high-performance sports car. The F-TYPE's rigid all-aluminium architecture provides the perfect starting point, power coming from Jaguar's 5.0-litre supercharged V8 engine in 550PS/680Nm form - an increase of 55PS and 55Nm over the F-TYPE V8 S.

    "The overriding dynamic aim when developing F-TYPE was ensuring connected feel; it's a true, driver-focused sports car; agile, immediate, fast and, of course, fun. Having achieved that for the road, Project 7 has given us a unique opportunity to go that little bit further. It's visceral in every sense - its response, its sound and its sheer performance. I'm very much looking forward to driving it at Goodwood."

    Integrating classic styling details into a modern high-belted, chunky-bumpered car is unsuccessful.

    Leave classics alone.
    Lack of charisma can be fatal.
    Visca Catalunya!

    I like it. The combination of the D-type and F-type is very good. It has good classic styling with the handling and power output of a modern sports car.
