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.
