Jaguar is considering a family of new special-edition cars in the same vein as its new F-type Project 7.

Speaking to Autocar at the Le Mans Classic event last weekend, where we also had a chance to ride in the £135,000 Project 7, executive of JLR's new Special Vehicle Operations division Harry Metcalfe suggested that a new factory could allow SVO to create and build more limited-run cars like P7.

With P7 itself proving to be a success – 250 will be available globally and the UK's allocation of around 65 is already sold out  – then expect JLR to investigate doing more limited cars in the future.

Any new models would also be likely be built in strictly-limited numbers and could also be based on the F-type.

Given that the Special Vehicle Operations division runs across both Jaguar and Land Rover, models from both brands can't be ruled out.

Bring the C-X75 to production . . .

The 250 examples of the “Project 7” flagship are to be hand-built during 2015.

It is to be hoped that John Edwards - boss of JLR’s new Special Operations (SO) division - will then encourage the sub-division called Special Vehicle Operations (SVO) and headed by Paul Newsome (the ex-Lotus, ex-Williams engineer) who was chief of the recent C-X75 hybrid supercar project . . . to bring that very same C-X75 to production.
