The guys at Autocar have recently had the chance to take the Jaguar Project 7 out for a quick spin, and what came out can be seen in the video posted below.
Jaguar has created the impressive Project 7 for the 2013 Goodwood Festival of Speed and the model has been based on the new F-Type roadster. The model has been officially presented to the public last month, during the automotive event held in the United Kingdom and it’s a one-off vehicle. The Jaguar Project 7 has been created in order to celebrate the carmaker’s victories at LE Mans between 1951 and 1990.
The British based automaker says that the Jaguar Project 7 is powered by a 5.0 liter V8 supercharged engine, which is borrowed from the F-Type. The unit is producing a total output of 550 HP (405 kW) and it has a peak torque of 680 Nm (502 lb-ft). Power is being sent to the rear-wheel drive through an eight-speed Quickshift transmission which is helping the model accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 4.2 seconds. Top speed stands at 300 km/h (186 mph). You can check out the Project 7 in Autocar’s video below.
