Jaguar PROJECT 7

Jaguar Project 7Jaguar’s Project 7 concept will make a dynamic debut at the 2013 Goodwood Festival of Speed on 12th July. Project 7 is based on Jaguar’s acclaimed F-TYPE, its all-new, two-seater, convertible sports car and winner of the World Car Design of the Year 2013 award.

Key exterior design changes include a fairing behind the driver’s head; bespoke carbon-fibre components – a new front splitter, side skirts and rear diffuser; lowered windshield and restyled front bumper. Project 7’s unique interior features a composite single-seat with racing harness, a helmet holder and custom trim. Project 7’s name acknowledges Jaguar’s winning of Le Mans seven times between 1951-1990 – a record for a British manufacturer – and its blue paintwork is reminiscent of the victorious Jaguar D-types of 1956/1957.

Project 7 is not a static concept, but a fully-functional, high-performance sports car. The F-TYPE’s rigid all-aluminum architecture provides the perfect starting point, power coming from Jaguar’s 5.0-litre supercharged V8 engine in 550PS/680Nm form – an increase of 55PS and 55Nm over the F-TYPE V8 S.  Continue reading Jaguar PROJECT 7

Spied – Jaguar Lapping the Nurburgring with their F-Type Coupe

F-Type Coupe

Some month’s ago we gave you the very first photos of the new Jaguar F-Type Coupe, and today we can show you the clearest batch of photos taken at the Nürburgring where the F-Type Coupe took some quick laps before it disappeared again.

Just like the F-Type Roadster we expect the Coupe to be available in two V6 versions and one V8 for a start. But as we hear through the grapevine there might be some R and R-S versions of the F-Type in the pipeline in the future.

We expect the Power to be delivered from the current three engines – A 3.0 V6 340PS, 3.0 V6 380PS and 5.0 V8 495PS. Each features a Roots-type twin vortex supercharger mounted on the ‘V’ of the engine to maintain its compact dimensions.
Jaguar is a leader in Supercharged induction technology – it provides a linear delivery of performance and high levels of torque at all engine speeds, minimizing the gap between the driver’s demand for power and the engine’s response.

Jaguar F-Type Coupe – First Spyshot’s

Jaguar F-Type Coupe First Spyshots

Here is another story to debunk the rumor that the recently leaked patent drawings of the F-Type Coupe, in fact these where the real deal contrary to weak reports that it was the CX16 concept patent.

The prototype albeit under a lot of camouflage trying to trick us in to thinking its just a F-Type Cabriolet.

It is believed the F-Type Coupe will go on sale early 2014 and is likely to retain the same engine lineup as the convertible. a supercharged V6 3.0-liter with 340 HP and 380 HP, plus a range topping supercharged V8 5.0-liter producing 495 HP.

JAGUAR F-TYPE TO DEBUT IN PARIS

Jaguar  F-Type R Prototype

The F-TYPE, Jaguar’s all-new aluminium two-seater sports car, will make its global debut in production form at the Paris Motor Show on 27th September.

Adrian Hallmark, Global Brand Director, Jaguar Cars, said: “The unveiling of the F-TYPE in Paris will be a truly significant day in Jaguar’s history as it will mark the company’s return to the sports car market, a market it originally helped to create.

“As its sporting forebears did in their era, the F-TYPE will break new ground by delivering stunning sports car performance while vividly demonstrating Jaguar’s cutting-edge engineering technologies and world-class design excellence. The next step in Jaguar’s sporting bloodline is about to become reality.”

The F-TYPE will be launched as a convertible with a choice of three petrol engines: 340PS and 380PS versions of Jaguar’s all-new 3.0-litre supercharged V6, and a new derivative of its existing supercharged 5.0-litre V8. All will drive the rear wheels through an eight-speed transmission and will be equipped with Stop/Start technology.

Prototype test programme

After we spotted all three variants of the F-Type testing around Gaydon in UK.

Following the F-TYPE’s ‘camouflaged’ public drive at the Goodwood Festival of Speed in June of this year, testing of the final verification prototypes has continued in some of the harshest environments in the world.

As its name suggests, this test programme is designed to verify the staggering amount of design work that was carried out by Jaguar’s engineers in the ‘virtual world’, a process in which the company is an industry leader.

More than half-a-million separate F-TYPE design analyses were carried out comprising 10-million CPU hours of processing, creating more than 300TB of data. Had that same amount of initial design analysis been completed on physical cars, the number of prototype F-TYPEs built would have filled the majority of the UK’s motorway network bumper-to-bumper.

The result of all that ‘virtual’ design work is that Jaguar’s engineers are currently concentrating on honing the performance of the physical verification prototypes, to ensure the production F-TYPE delivers truly focused sports car driving reward.

Said Ian Hoban, Jaguar’s Vehicle Line Director: “When you are working on a Jaguar sports car the expectations of the world are huge. We’re really pleased how the attributes have translated from the virtual simulation work we’ve done into the physical world.

“Now, we’re refining and adding those last few percentage points – that true element of honing which the Jaguar test team are delivering – which will turn a great sports car into an exceptional one.”
