Jaguar F-Type Project 7 - 1

The limited edition Jaguar F-TYPE Project 7 supercar will be making its first-ever appearance in Malaysia during the Asia Klasika Motor Festival 2015 at Pullman Putrajaya Lakeside this weekend, from October 2 – 4, 2015.

The stunning hand-built roadster, the most powerful production Jaguar ever built, will be a star attraction at the 6th Malaysia International Vintage and Classic Car Concours, which is a key part of the festival.

At the event, Jaguar Land Rover (Malaysia) Sdn Bhd (JLRM) and its authorised dealer SISMA Auto will also be showcasing three other Jaguar models – the XJ, XF and F-Type – as part of the British marque’s 80th Anniversary celebrations this year.

“The surprise maiden appearance is a special treat for Jaguar fans and motoring fans in Malaysia as the F-TYPE Project 7 is one of the most coveted supercars today, with production limited to just 250 units globally,” said JLRM Managing Director Tuan Syed Mudzhar Syed Ali.

F-TYPE Project 7 is not only the most focused derivative of the award-winning F-TYPE range, but also the fastest production Jaguar ever built. It is also the first Jaguar performance vehicle from Jaguar Land Rover’s Special Operations team.

Its distinctive roadster body pays tribute to one of the most famous and iconic racing Jaguars: the three-time Le Mans winning D-type, which celebrated its 60th anniversary in 2014. F-TYPE Project 7’s name pays homage to Jaguar’s seven outright Le Mans wins. It is fully road-legal, with a removable roof and 196-litre stowage space.

The supercar’s power comes from Jaguar’s 5.0-litre supercharged V8 engine, now in 575PS/680Nm form, enabling the all-aluminium-bodied car – which weighs 1585kg – to achieve acceleration from 0-100km/h in 3.9-seconds and an electronically-limited top speed of 300km/h.

Power is sent to the rear wheels through Jaguar’s eight-speed Quickshift transmission and second generation Electronic Active Differential (EAD). Carbon Ceramic Matrix (CCM) brakes are fitted as standard on F-TYPE Project 7, offering powerful, consistent, fade-free braking. Another standard feature is Torque Vectoring by Braking (TVbB) which, working in conjunction with the EAD, enables extremely precise handling.

Bespoke carbon-fibre aerodynamic aids and a unique suspension set-up enable F-TYPE Project 7 to deliver a truly engaging driving experience.

While F-TYPE Project 7 features performance-focused engineering by Special Vehicle Operations – the engineering and vehicle division of Special Operations – its design has been kept true to the head-turning lines of the original Project 7 concept.

Key design elements include the D-type-inspired fairing behind the driver’s head, shorter windshield, new front bumper, and downforce-increasing aerodynamic modifications – including a carbon-fibre front splitter, side skirts, rear diffuser and adjustable rear spoiler. However, the single-seater concept has been transformed into a two-seater, with rollover hoops for both driver and passenger now integrated into the design.
