The cabin of the vehicle is getting an Alcantara or leather wrapped steering wheel, carbon fiber trim, diamond quilted leather seats, individually numbered plaque, aluminum gearshift paddles and Project 7 sill plates.
Jaguar has also equipped the new F-Type Project 7 with an active rear differential, with new front suspension knuckles, with beefier anti-roll bars, with an Adaptive Dynamics system, with a retuned Dynamic Stability Control and with carbon ceramic matrix brakes. Power is being provided by a 5.0 liter V8 engine which has been rated at 575 HP (423 kW) and 680 Nm (502 lb-ft) of torque, sent to the wheels through an 8-speed Quickshift transmission.
