The Jaguar F-TYPE Project 7 is a 250-unit limited-edition run of the Jaguar F Type sports car. It pays tribute to the Ecurie Ecosse racing team that won the 24 Hours of Le Mans race twice with the Jaguar D-Type in the 1950s.
Shortly after releasing the F-Type Roadster, Jaguar created the Project 7 design study. The concept car paid tribute to Ecurie Ecosse racing team that won the 24 Hours of Le Mans race twice with the Jaguar D-Type in the 1950s. The concept featured a D-Type -style rollover hoop behind the driver’s seat, as well as the race car’s white-striped livery.
Coming into 2014, Jaguar commissioned its Special Vehicle Operations division to transform the concept car into a production vehicle. Thus the F-Type Project 7 ditches its auto show queen status and goes to wander the streets and tracks in all of its Le Mans-inspired glory.
Another distinctive element borrowed from the concept car is the rollover hoop positioned behind the driver’s seat. The piece reminds us of the classic, Le Mans-winning Jaguar D-Type, which celebrates its 60th anniversary in 2014. A three-time Le Mans winner between 1955 and 1957, the D-Type is the most successful race car ever created by the British company.
Added as part of the Enduro Update, the Jaguar F-TYPE Project 7 serves as an upgraded version of the Jaguar F-Type R, last introduced in the Dubai update more than a year back. Here, it uses the right-hand drive version and has its folding soft-top roof deployed.
The Jaguar F-TYPE Project 7 is a high-end Class C car with the following rank statistics:
Much like the Koenigsegg One:1 to the Koenigsegg Agera R in Class S, the Jaguar F-TYPE Project 7 features considerably improved stats over the Jaguar F-Type R, its lesser form. The Project 7 has the same nitro power as the One:1, but for some reason, instead of usually being rated as 6/11/16 for nitro consumption rates, it actually receives a 6/9/12. At MAX+PRO with a Tuning Kit, however, the Project 7 actually has slightly higher top speed than the R, as a flipside to the One:1 having less real top speed than the Agera R even at MAX+PRO with a Tuning Kit. Overall, the Project 7 is a car capable of competing on any track.
However, just like the Koenigsegg One:1 to the 9FF GT9 VMAX in Class S and McLaren 675LT in Class A, the Jaguar F-TYPE Project 7 is slightly inferior to the Mitsubishi Eclipse, which can be seen as a Class C version of the 9FF GT9 VMAX/McLaren 675LT but in front-wheel-drive form. The Project 7's handling and drifting capabilities and nitro power aren't as good as the Eclipse.
The Jaguar F-TYPE Project 7 had an original buying price of 2,400 that was later reduced to 2,350. Upgrades cost 1,685,875 or 9,925 or Asphalt 8: Airborne 9,925 while Pro Kits require 719,475, 11 of each Class C Part cards, 8 Early, Initial & Mid Tech cards and 12 V8 Engine cards.
