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.
The Jaguar F-TYPE Project 7 was added in the Enduro Update 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. As of the Fifteenth Anniversary Update it costs 3,400.
As of the 2019 Spring Update, upgrades cost 1,561,000 while Pro Kits require 520,800, 40 of each Class C Part, 36 Initial & Early Techs each, 28 Mid-Techs, and 60 V8 Engines.
