It was at Goodwood in 2014 that Jaguar unveiled its single-seat, short-screen speedster concept car, that had the dual roles of celebrating the company’s seven Le Mans victories (hence Project 7) and simultaneously demonstrating how the F-Type could be developed into a truly hard-edged sports car. Interest was sufficiently high that 250 two-seat versions (only 80 of which were RHD) were subsequently built and rapidly sold for c.£135,000 each. Designed by Jaguar’s Special Vehicle Operations team, it was quite simply the most powerful road-going model ever to wear the firm’s famous logo and, with 567bhp and a stump-pulling 516 lb ft of torque on tap, is capable of hitting 60mph in a disdainful 3.8 seconds and a top speed of 186mph. The power is fed to the road via an eight-speed ‘Quickshift’ automatic gearbox tuned for faster response and snappier shifts. Stopping is achieved via carbon-ceramic brakes all-round, while 20 inch Continental ForceContact tyres are the chosen means of contact with the road.

The example offered is one of the 80 UK specification cars. Finished in Goodwood Blue complemented by a Jet Black interior, it was in fact the last of the line. And, with just 650 miles to its name even now, it is in as new condition, and the vendor unsurprisingly rates the bodywork, paintwork, upholstery, supercharged V8 engine and transmission as all being in ‘excellent condition’. He purchased the Jaguar from its first owner in 2017 and it was last serviced by Jaguar Droitwich in 2018. The sale of ‘DK66 EEY’ represents a rare opportunity to acquire a very special limited-edition model of Jaguar that was a collectors’ item from birth. It is being offered complete with Tracker, Project 7 book pack, and its full complement of manuals and tools, plus an MOT certificate valid into may of next year.
