The Incredible Jaguar Project 7 Racer: One-Seat, Four Wheels, All Noise

The boffins at Jaguar have been doing some amazing work lately. No longer is it just a factory in the Midlands of Britain for boring wood-laden sedans: it's an engineer's wet dream. Meet the Project 7: a one-seat racer that makes a noise so good you'll think about selling your house just to buy one.

The Jaguar Project 7 is based on the bite-the-back-of-your-hand-gorgeous Jaguar F-Type we saw a few months ago. It's long, large and most definitely in charge.

Under the hood lurks the Jaguar 5.0-litre supercharged V8 engine which produces 680nm of torque. It will go from 0-60mph (96.56km/h) in 4.1 seconds, and will keep on going to a phenomenal 300km/h. Well, 186mph (299.338km/h), but near enough to make no difference whatsoever. All that power is wrapped in a beautiful azure blue aluminium body, complete with white racing stripe and matching helmet. Nice.

And when that 5.0-litre engine pounces, you feel like you're watching the love-child of speed and science grow-up before your very eyes. A streak of blue lightning lost in a dizzying sea of thunderous engine noise and power.

To be fair, you can't really buy the monstrous Project 7. It's one of a kind and it comes without a price tag, and if you have to ask, you can't afford it.

The Jaguar Project 7 will make its first public debut at the Goodwood Festival of Speed on 12 July.
