Jaguar Plans More Project 7 Style One-Offs


But a return to long-distance racing is not part of the British carmaker’s current ambitions.

It may only have taken four months to go from sketch to sports car, but according to a company insider Jaguar’s F-Type-based Project 7 could lead the way for similar one-off projects. Inspired by the D-Type and named after Jaguar’s seven Le Mans victories, as well as giving its new F-Type some added air time while hinting at the more extreme variant we know is coming, Project 7 was one of the star attractions at the Goodwood FoS and could be a project “worth repeating.”

Project 7 was patently paying homage to Jaguar’s previous Le Mans successes with a color scheme reminiscent of the 56/57-winning Flag Blue Metallic D-type piloted by Ecurie Ecosse (French for “Team Scotland”). However, there are no immediate plans for Jaguar to return to endurance racing.
