Anyone care to place a (serious) bid?
Only 250 examples are being built with just 50 set to arrive in the US. This is one of them, and it happens to be for sale. The Jaguar F-Type Project 7 is partially a homage to the Jaguar D-Type as well as a display of what Jaguar's Special Vehicle Operations can do. Compared to the standard F-Type R, the Project 7 has a 25 hp increase and a 99 lbs decrease in weight, a unique front splitter and fixed rear spoiler, along with several unique badges and body decals.
That 5.0-liter supercharged V8 spits out a loud 575 hp and 516 lb-ft of torque, with all of that power going straight to the rear wheels via an eight-speed automatic. List price? $165,995. But not this one up for sale right now on eBay. It's in mint condition with just 64 miles on the odometer and has a starting bid of $100,000. As of this writing, there were zero bids. The auction still has several days to go before it ends, but unless a bidding war starts, someone paying close attention to this ad that makes a last minute bid could wind up with a hell of a deal. The Project 7 is only the fastest and most powerful production Jaguar convertible ever. Photos courtesy of shule2/eBay.
