Jaguar will reveal the first model to come from its newly formed Special Operations division at the Goodwood Festival of Speed next week.

The new division was officially announced earlier this month, with engineers tasked to make concepts like the Jaguar F-type Project 7 into a production reality. Jaguar first ran the Project 7 at the Goodwood Festival of Speed last year.

Other targeted creations include a recently announced run of lightweight E-type models. The firm hasn't said what the new model will be, but a reveal at next week's Moving Motor Show is likely.

Joining the new model on Jaguar's stand will be examples of the racing D-type, XJS TWR and XJR-9 - all of which will be taking to Goodwood's 1.6-mile hillclimb course alongside the F-type R Coupe and the XFR-S Sportbrake.

Meanwhile Land Rover continues to preview its own new model, a hot version of the Range Rover Sport, which is also likely to be built by the Special Operations division.

Jaguar F-type coupe

The Jaguar F-Type has given the big cat back its roar, but can the 2017 updates keep at bay its closest rivals including the masterful Porsche 911?
