Few Words About Jaguar Project 7 Concept

What’s new the British are preparing? Aston Martin uncovered a thrilling concept model in the form of the CC100 and their cross-country rival Jaguar seems to be on the same stage. The Project 7 is an open-air roadster with angry looks and even more threatening performance.

As you might suspect this vehicle is a one-off design study. The digit in its name acknowledges Jag’s 7 Le Mans triumphs between 1951 and 1990. Its blue paint is a tip of the hat to victorious D-Type vehicles from 1956 and ‘57.

If you look closely, you can notify this beauty is based on the frisky new Jaguar F-Type sports vehicle. It includes an aluminum body and a lot of carbon-fiber aerodynamic details like the front splitter, side skirts and rear spoiler. Unsurprisingly with such a determined style this vehicle seats just a person – the driver – who sits in front of a special fairing that was inspired by the D-Type.

Just like Aston Martin’s CC100 this vehicle is constructed to run. The model is enhanced by a fearsome 5.0-liter supercharged V8 with 550 horsepower. That farm of ponies can propel the Project 7 concept from zero to 60 in just 4.1 seconds. An 8-speed Zahnradfabrik Friedrichshafen automatic is the transmission du jour.

The fresh F-Type sports vehicle is a bold statement from Jaguar and the Project 7 concept takes what’s already great and makes it even better… unfortunately this blue beauty will possibly never make it into production.
