The Jaguar F-Type convertible was unveiled in 2012 that left everyone spellbound with its gorgeous styling. In 2013, Jaguar revealed the speedster version of the F-Type, termed as Project 7 that is inspired by the Jaguar’s legendary D-Type race car. Later in 2013, the stunning Jaguar F-Type Coupe was launched. Now at the 2014 Auto Expo, Jaguar is showcasing both Project 7 and F-Type Coupe that are attracting massive attention. The Jaguar Project 7 reveals a raw performance oriented stance, while the F-Type Coupe is a pure fashionista with an aggressive face.
The Jaguar Project 7 made its first public appearance at the Goodwood festival of speed in UK. The Jaguar D-Type Project 7 won the 24-Hours of Le Mans race.
