Jaguar F-Type Project 7 Reviewed By Harry Metcalfe

Jaguar is fighting the very best from Germany with the roll-out of new models and special, performance-focused variants.

One of its most recognizable efforts over the past two years is certainly the F-Type Project 7.

With just 250 units sold globally, Harry Metcalfe, the founder of Evo Magazine, is one of the very lucky owners.

Well, seeing as he has left the magazine and assumed an advisory role at Jaguar Land Rover’s SVO (Special Vehicle Operations) division, he had the privilege of owning the very first example.

Given that the Project 7 is an all-British car, it’s appropriate that Metcalfe optioned his car in British Racing Green, and then added bright orange and white accents as a throwback to classic Jaguar racers.

Apart from its obvious visual and aerodynamic changes and the weight-saving measures, the Project 7 is powered by the same 5.0-liter supercharged V8 as the F-Type R. However, it now puts out 575 hp and 680 Nm, leading Metcalfe to say that the car feels like it has a bit too much power – even more than the Pagani Zonda S he used to own!
