F-TYPE Project 7 – the most powerful and fastest production Jaguar to date – made its dynamic debut in front of packed crowds during the Le Mans Classic race meeting over the weekend of 4-6 July.

In celebration of the Jaguar D-type’s 60th anniversary – a car which won at Le Mans three times and which inspired Project 7’s genesis – F-TYPE Project 7 completed its demonstration laps throughout the weekend alongside the very first D-type ever built, and with several examples of the all-new F-TYPE R Coupé.

On-track, numerous Jaguars were competing throughout the 24 hours of Le Mans Classic, but the highlight was the victory in Grid 3 (for cars from 1957-1961) by the Jaguar-entered D-type driven by Gary Pearson and journalist Chris Harris.
