The Jaguar F-Type Project 7 has officially arrived in the United States at the ongoing Monterey Car Week 2014. Additionally, pricing for the U.S bound models has been revealed with the exclusive F-Type variant to cost at least $165,925 including the $925 destination charge.
U.S spec F-Type Project 7’s remain largely identical to those from overseas except for one key point. The windshield is larger in the U.S. due to local regulations instead of the shorter and more highly raked windscreen available elsewhere. As these images shows, this Jaguar F-Type Project 7 show car also debuts a new paint job with it finished in Glacier White with Ultra Blue accents.
Although the car is obviously based on the F-Type convertible it will be built in a very different fashion, only the very basics of the car will be shared. This is a result of the foundation of an all new special operations department that will be used for both Jaguar and Land Rover cars. JLR Special Vehicle Operations will be acquiring their own and separate facility in the West Midlands, UK, where a special team of 150 people will build, by hand, all 250 examples of the Jaguar F-Type Project 7 over a six-month period.
The Jaguar F-Type Project 7 represents the most performance-focused derivative of the acclaimed F-Type range and will be the most performance focused Jaguar on sale. With 567 hp and 680 Nm being produced from its 5.0 litre supercharged V8, the fully road-legal racer will hit 100 km/h in 3.9 seconds and will keep pulling to a top speed of 300 km/h, only stopped by an electronic limiter.
