Jaguar reveals F-Type-based 'Project 7'

















The Jaguar Project 7 concept will make a dynamic debut at the 2013 Goodwood Festival of Speed on July 12. This concept vehicle is based on the 2014 Jaguar F-Type, an all-new, two-seat convertible sports car and winner of the 2013 'World Car Design of the Year' award.
