Look at it. The speed hump behind the driver’s head pays tribute to the legendary D-Type. Listen to it. The crackling, burbling rasp of the exhaust is the only thing that may encourage you to lift off the throttle. Otherwise this blown V8’s induction and roar is all one really needs. Fortunately, for the already sold out 250 models produced by the Jaguar Land Rover Special Vehicle Operations unit, there is much more to appreciate. Project 7 is lighter with more grip than its predecessor. The near 100 pounds of weight loss over the F-Type R come from a fixed wing and a bikini top. Suspension changes and sticky rubber make the Project 7 an improved choice for track day enjoyment. So sure, look at it, listen to it; there’s plenty to enjoy. But most importantly drive it and find out exactly what this big cat is made of.
The Jaguar F-Type Project 7, based on the F-Type Convertible, is a limited edition version of the F-Type, with a 567 hp (423 kW) supercharged V8 engine, making it Jaguar's most powerful model of the F-Type yet, alongside the SVR. The Project 7 was created to pay tribute to the Jaguar D-Type.
As a car meant to pay tribute to the Jaguar D-Type, the F-Type Project 7 uses an all-aluminum body and sports an "Aero Haunch" behind the driver. It is visually different from other F-Type models in that it uses a quad exhaust system and an additional fixed rear wing. Compared to the F-Type R, the Project 7 weighs 66 lb (30 kg) less.
The Project 7's AJ133 5.0 L (5,000 cc) supercharged V8 has been upgraded to make 567 hp (423 kW) and 516 ft·lb (700 N·m). A carryover from the F-Type R is the eight-speed ZF 8HP button-operated automatic transmission.
The Project 7 reaches 60 mph (97 km/h) in 3.8 seconds, 100 mph (161 km/h) in 8.1 seconds, and top speeds exceeding 186 mph (300 km/h).
The Jaguar F-Type Project 7 Pre-Order Car is a special Pre-Order Car version of the Project 7, available exclusively to players who pre-ordered Forza Horizon 3 from Best Buy. It comes with stock performance that sets the car to the top of Class S1, with improvements in handling and braking.
The Jaguar F-Type Project 7 Horizon Edition (abbreviated as F-Type HE, displayed in all capital letters) is a modified Project 7 with aftermarket rims, blue body coloring, and the 6.5 L V12 from the Lamborghini Aventador LP 700-4. It awards a 100% base XP boost. The Project 7 HE was obtainable in the Forzathon event Speed is Key but can otherwise be obtained via the Auction House. It will also be obtainable in a currently unnamed Forzathon event held from April 13, 2018 to April 20, 2018.
The Horizon Edition version of the car was reused in Forza Motorsport 7 as a Forza Edition car, awarding 40% bonus CR and 40% more bonus CR at Top Gear. However, the 5.0 L supercharged V8 from the original Project 7 returns, but this time with a bigger restrictor plate due to the use of homologated performance. The Jaguar F-Type Project 7 Forza Edition, also nicknamed Jaguar P7 ME (with "ME" standing for "Motorsport Edition"), is obtainable by completing the Evolution Elite Championship in the Forza Driver's Cup. It was also given out to all VIP players from October 2017 to December 1, 2017 after confusion regarding the VIP Membership DLC.
