Goodwood Festival of Speed kicks off today and the car that’s got the world talking is Jaguar’s ‘Project 7’ based off the phenomenal new F-Type. The Project 7 makes it’s official debut at the festival but it didn’t stop Jaguar releasing some lovely images and a short video of the gargling 542BHP supercharged V8 to create some pre show hype.
The design of the P7 was overseen by the creator of the F-Type Mr Ian Callum and features a chopped-down front windscreen, as well as a 10mm drop in ride height and 20-inch alloys, finished in black to match the carbon front splitter, side skirts and vents. Jaguar fans will also notice the retro turret taken from the iconic D-type with the blue paintwork paying tribute to early Le Mans race cars. As you’ll hear in the video below the P7 sounds like a blood thirsty rottweiler which is aided by the car’s ceramic coated exhaust.
Unfortunately Project 7 is a one of a kind concept but for a lucky bunch these images will become a reality as Jaguar engineer Mike Cross puts the P7 through it’s paces in front of the Goodwood spectators. Now watch the video because my words can’t do it justice anymore!
