Jaguar is honouring its heritage in a delightful way by unleashing its Project 7 concept at the Goodwood Festival of Speed this weekend.
Though based on the thoroughly modern Jaguar F-Type, the Project 7 harks back to the D-type Le Mans cars of the late 1950s. There's a historical ring to its name too as Jaguar won the 24-hour race seven times between 1951 and 1990.
As a purely driver-focussed pleasure machine, the concept is a single-seater complete with a racing harness and helmet holder.
The first things you're likely notice are the shapely faring behind the driver's seat and the lowered windscreen; other design changes include a restyled front bumper, new front splitter, side skirts and rear diffuser.
The excitement continues beneath the bonnet, where Jaguar's engineers have liberated more ponies from Jaguar's 5-litre supercharged V8.
