Luxury car makers Jaguar used last week’s 2014 Goodwood Festival of Speed to debut their new limited edition F-Type Project 7 model.

Named in honour of Jaguar’s seven outright victories at the Le Mans endurance race, Project 7 was first introduced as a concept model in 2013 and is the first Jaguar performance vehicle from Jaguar Land Rover‘s Special Operations team.

Boasting a distinctive roadster body, the car was designed to commemorate the 60th birthday of the iconic three-time Le Mans winning Jaguar D-type.

Project 7 is powered by a 5.0-litre supercharged V8 engine and can accelerate from 0-60mph in 3.8 seconds.

Other notable features include a removable roof, 196-litre stowage space, D-type-inspired fairing behind the driver’s head and downforce-increasing aerodynamic modifications including a carbon-fibre front splitter, side skirts, rear diffuser and adjustable rear spoiler.

The D-type was produced by Jaguar between 1954 and 1957.
