Jaguar global scoop: Project 7 spy photos

| |

The much-touted F-Type Project 7, the fastest and most powerful car ever manufactured by Jaguar Land Rover, is debuting this week, but The Weekly Driver caught an early glimpse.

One day before its launch during, we noted the 575-horsepower, supercharged five-liter V8 with a eight-speed automatic. It was the subject of test shoot along the Pacific Ocean in Pacific Grove.

A film crew from Long Beach, California, and Great Britain equipped with a video drone, filmed the Project 7 on repeat loops on the curved back roads of the quaint town. The backdrop was ideal: blue skies, no wind and the pristine ocean painting a deep horizon.

According to several reports, Jaguar will build only 250 units of the roadster as an honor the 60th anniversary of Jaguar’s D-Type race car, which inspired its design.

The vehicle is to be viewed this

The Project 7 name is derived from Jaguar’s seven Le Mans wins between 1951-1990. Many were achieved with the D-Type.

Jaguar is promoting the car with impressive specs: a 0-60 mph effort in 3.8 seconds and a top speed of 186.

The prototype contributing editor Bruce Aldrich photographed in Pacific Grove was limited to 25 mph.
