The Jaguar F-Type Project 7 is one special vehicle. The model in question was brought to a lot of events back in 2014 and it has been already previewed by a concept car. The roadster is being offered in a limited production and it is paying its tribute to the D-Type. The Project 7 is bringing a carbon fiber body, a lowered windscreen, an adjustable rear wing, an active sport exhaust system, carbon fiber trim, aluminum gearshift paddles and others. Under its hood we can find a 5.0 liter V8 supercharged engine, capable of putting down no less than 575 HP (423 kW) and 680 Nm (502 lb-ft) of torque, sent to the wheels through an 8-speed Quickshift transmission. From 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) this needs just 3.9 seconds.
