The limited edition Jaguar F-Type Project 7 is the fastest, most powerful and lightest F-Type to date. The car uses an all-aluminum body and other weight saving measures to weigh 1,585 kg.
Jaguar is looking to develop an even lighter model than that, using an innovative powertrain technology from the C-X75 hypercar.
“The Project 7 is 80kg lighter, but there are smaller engines that start from a lower point. Will the Project 7 be the lightest ever? I’m not sure, but we haven’t invented it yet,” Paul Newson, director of Jaguar Land Rover’s Special Vehicle Operations division, told Auto Express.
“We designed that engine for a £1million supercar, so it’s extremely expensive. But it could work well,” Newson said. “Who can say where we’ll go in the future? The world is downsizing with high-pressure engines. In the longer term, we won’t be using 5.0-litre V8s,” he added.
A source tells the publication that two more products could arrive at the beginning of next year with more to follow.
