Jaguar has confirmed that it intends to build 250 examples of the 2013 F-Type Project 7 concept car for sale to the public, using its Jaguar Land Rover Special Operations team to handle the assembly of the custom two-seat roadster. Inspired by the 60th anniversary of the LeMans-winning Jaguar D-type race car, the F-Type Project 7 features handmade carbon- fiber aerodynamic aids and a unique suspension, as well as the most powerful engine Jaguar has ever put in a car: a 575-horsepower, supercharged 5.0-liter V-8 mated to an eight- speed automatic transmission. Jaguar says it will propel the Project 7 from zero to 60 mph in just 3.8 seconds with an electronically limited top speed of 186 mph, making it the fastest car Jaguar has ever produced.

Several high-performance features will be standard on the Project 7, including carbon- ceramic brakes, a torque vectoring system and race-inspired seats. The only roof will be a stowable fabric strip that stretches from the top of the windshield and accommodates the D-type-inspired fairing behind the driver's head. It will be fully road-legal, however, and even features a trunk that holds 7 cubic feet of luggage.

The first examples of the new Project 7 will be delivered to customers in mid-2015, and it will make its public debut at the 2014 Goodwood Festival of Speed in West Sussex, England on Thursday. Pricing has not yet been announced.

As I recall, the XJ220 had a stop speed near '220 miles/hr', so the Project 7 is likely not the fastest production Jaguar...
