With only 50 examples of the Jaguar Project 7 produced for the United States, this is one very rare find

Originally designed to pay tribute to the original Jaguar D-Type and C-Type, Jaguar took the F-Type and turned it into the Project 7 concept way back in 2013. The reception of this special F-Type was so promising that Jaguar decided to commission its special operations division to create a production model, and that’s what you’re looking at here. To be more specific, you’re looking at 1 of just 50 that was produced for the U.S. market, so keep that in mind when you see that the current bid, as of the time of this writing, is at $145,000 with a couple of days left for bidding.

The Jaguar Project 7 was a limited-run special edition that was based on the Jaguar F-Type.

This specific model is one of just 250 built globally and just one of 50 that landed on U.S. Soil.

It features a Glacier White exterior finish with Jet interior with Ivory contrast stitching. According to the listing on Ebay, it includes all the original books, documents, and factory tools as well as a factory car cover and all-new accessories. This specific example has also been driven just 481 miles as of the time of this publication.

Highlights of the Project 7 production model included a dynamically varied exhaust system, carbon-ceramic brakes, performance-tuned suspension, plenty of carbon fiber, and an electronic active differential. As a rare cookie, it’s also hand-built by Jaguar Special Vehicle Operations. However, with all of this said, I should point out an error in the auction listing. This model is listed as having 575 horsepower and 516 pound-feet of torque. This is actually a common mistake, but inaccurate.

The 2016 Jaguar Project 7 sits comfortably at 575 PS or 567 horsepower. Its official torque rating is actually 502 pound-feet as opposed to the listing’s stated 516.

It will still hit 60 mph in 3.8 seconds or 62 mph (100 kph) in 3.9 seconds, though. Every bit of this power is sent to the rear wheels via an eight-speed automatic transmission with top speed coming in at 186 mph.

Overall, this is an impressive find that probably won’t come up often, so if you’re really been wanting one, now’s your chance to get in on some bidding action. With a couple of days left, there’s no telling how much higher the price will go.
