The Jaguar F-type is a vehicle which has been introduced to the wider audience in 2013 and was initially a very good and popular sedan vehicle which was found very appealing by many people.
The year which followed it brought us the cabriolet version of the vehicle which brought to the development and the popularity of the vehicle. But from the very beginning and the introduction of the F-type, Jaguar had a dream to introduce the Project 7.
This was actually their idea from the start and the car only existed as a concept version. That is till now as we are getting close to the day when we are going to see the 2015 Jaguar F-Type Project 7 roll out on the payment and grace us with its showcasing of its skill.
The car is actually a homage to the Jaguar D-type, which won the 24 Hours of Le Mans race in 1950, and was made by the Ecurie Ecosse racing team. The Project 7 vehicle will take many characteristics from its predecessor and will be given a touch of some modern features which will ultimately result in a great car.
2015 Jaguar F-Type Project 7 Exterior
The 2015 Jaguar F-Type Project 7 is a bit different than the initial concept was made to be. Firstly, its mainly carbon-fiber exterior lost a lot of weight to the Project 7 vehicle, making it no less than 26 pounds lighter than the previous F-type. The model is essentiaLly the same with some minor alterations to its concept car. The front end includes a wider front splitter which goes around thebumper a bit.
The spoiler is reshaped and made to be adjustable, allowing you to change its position when needed. Also there is a retractable roof which is included and neatly tucked away behind the back of seats. An interesting touch are the wheels which are used.
The 2015 Jaguar F-Type Project 7 will use a five-spoke design which splits into a three-spoke design at the end. This makes for quite an interesting concept and make the vehicle seem quite charming. All in all the 2015 Jaguar F-Type Project 7 is quite a looker and is very charming to look at.
The all-black interior of the car makes for quite a mysterious feel to it. The 2015 Jaguar F-Type Project 7 is a two seater and gives you a rear feeling to it with the look that pays tribute to the old Le Mans winner. The racer seats are very comfortable and are made to keep both the driver and the passenger relaxed but alert while driving.
The seats are very light and are shaped in a diamond shape pattern with a white stitching for contrast. The front dashboard and the inside door panels also include the same white stitching which refresh the all-black inside of the car.
The driving wheel is padded with very comfortable Alcantara leather which enables a nice grip while driving. This is actually only for the base model as it is optional.
Engine of Jaguar F-Type Project 7
The 2015 Jaguar F-Type Project 7 uses the same engine which is fitted inside the F-type R coupe, which means that it uses a 5.0-liter V-8 engine. The difference is that the Project 7 has been remodeled to make a larger output and possess greater power.
The F-type Project 7 can produce a power of 567 horsepower at 502 pound-feet of torque, which is 25 horsepower better than the R Coupe vehicle which uses the same engine.
