One of the many big name debuts during the 2014 Monterey car week is this, the Jaguar F-Type Project 7, a stunning roadster inspired by Jaguar's legendary, finned D-Type sports car.

The Project 7 expands on the already appealing F-Type Convertible formula, further boosting the Jaguar Land Rover 5.0-liter, supercharged V8 to its most potent form yet – 575 horsepower – making this the most powerful production Jag in history. So equipped, the Project 7 is more cheetah than jaguar, roaring to 60 miles per hour in a rapid 3.8 seconds before reaching its electronically limited peak speed of 186 miles per hour.

Prices for the F-Type Project 7 start at $165,000, with customer deliveries slated begin in spring of 2015.

We have a full galleries of the F-Type Project 7 at the Quail, available at the top of the page. Jaguar's official press release and images, meanwhile, are available by scrolling down.

      The Glacier White is not nearly as good looking as this color:

      Isn't it impressive how Tata Motore brought Jaguar back to prestige after the grim Ford years? I just don't understand what they (Ford) were trying to do.

        Actually Ford saved Jaguar.  The XJ40 suffered from electrical problems and Ford ushered in the X300, which is excellent for reliability/durability & quality.  The initial 4.0 litre engine had issues, but since 2004 Jags have been very good (except x type automatics).  Ford modernized Jag, but didn't have the capital or will to wait for the profits.

      NOT worth it. Not at all. 165k just for a damn bump behind the drivers seat? it's a sexy car, but for that kind of cash? No thank you.

      At best, this is taking the E-Type forward, not the D-Type. A new iteration of a road car does not become a new iteration of a classic purpose built race car by adding some styling tweaks.

      That nosepiece should be on every F-Type. Maybe there's a low volume production exception so this special can live without the 5 mph bumper?
