Jaguar Land Rover has just announced that the British marquee will be launching three product at this year’s Pebble Beach Automotive weekend: the new 550bhp Range Rover Sport SVR— which will be a global debut— the U.S. production version of the Jaguar F-TYPE Project 7 and the prototype of the new Jaguar Lightweight E-Type – of which six customer cars will be built.
The Pebble Beach weekend gathers the world’s top automotive aficionados, collectors and vintage racers together for a celebration of great performance, heritage and luxury automobiles. Mr Ratan Tata himself ensures to make a presence at such events as this is one of the most esteemed events.
All three vehicles will make their public debut at the Jaguar Land Rover Thursday night Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance Kick-Off party at the Pebble Beach and Tennis Club and be shown throughout the weekend at various events.
All three vehicles are from Jaguar Land Rover’s newly created Special Operations division which, under the leadership of Managing Director, John Edwards, will focus on designing and engineering high specification vehicles, bespoke commissions, heritage products and branded goods.
The Jaguar F-TYPE Project 7 and Range Rover Sport SVR are both from Special Vehicle Operations – the engineering and vehicle division of Special Operations – while the new Lightweight E-type is the first recreation from Special Operation’s Jaguar Heritage team.
The highlight of the Pebble Beach weekend will be the US production debut of the F-TYPE Project 7, an all aluminium, fully road-legal two-seater roadster with bespoke carbon-fiber aerodynamic aids. F-TYPE Project 7 is based on the 2014 Jaguar F-TYPE and features a Jaguar D-type inspired fairing, as this year marks the 60th anniversary of the iconic Jaguar D-type and will be powered by a 550bhp engine.
