The new Jaguar Project 7 has been officially unveiled during the 2013 Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance, over the past weekend.
Jaguar’s newest creation is called the Project 7 and it’s basically a hardcore version of the regular F-Type roadster. The model in question has been already presented to the public last month, during the 2013 Goodwood Festival of Speed, but time has come for the carmaker to turn even more heads with it, as the sports car has been introduced at the 2013 Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance. The model in question has been created in order to celebrate Jaguar’s Le Mans history and its 7 wins in the prestigious event.
The new Jaguar Project 7 is celebrating the company’s Le Mans victories, between 1951 and 1990. Power to the impressive looking ride is provided by the top of the line engine used in the F-Type, the 5.0 liter supercharged V8. The total output produced by the unit stands at 550 HP (405 kW) and 680 Nm of torque (502 lb-ft). The engine is mated to an eight-speed Quickshift transmission, sending power to the rear wheels and helping the model sprint from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 4.2 seconds, before reaching a top speed of 300 km/h (186 mph).
