The Jaguar Project 7 Design Story Told by Ian Callum Himself [Video]
Unveiled ahead of the 2013 Goodwood Festival of Speed and showcased with great success during the West Sussex event, the Jaguar Project 7 is a single seater version of the F-Type and is powered by a supercharged 5.0-liter V8 engine rated at 550 HP and 680 Nm (502 lb-ft) of torque.
The one-off vehicle is fitted with an eight-speed Quickshit transmission which enables it to accelerate to 100 km/h (62 mph) from a standing start in only 4.2 seconds and reach an electronically-limited top speed of 300 km/h (186 mph).
“It’s something we, as designers and car lovers, doodle and love to do all the time. .[..] The Project 7 is there for one reason. To drive fast, with one person in it. It’s fun,” said Ian Callum.
