The crew from True Scale has put an especially cool modelcar on the wheels under the item number TS0168, which replicates the limited to 250 units Jaguar F-Type Froject 7 from 2015. The F-Type was then subjected to a radical cure: A flattened by about eleven centimeters roof or a correspondingly lower roof line of equipped with an emergency canopy instead of an electrically powered hood roadster, a reduction in weight by 85 kilos, an increase in power by 18 kW / 25 hp to now 422 kW / 575 hp and thus offers a fight announcement to top versions from Porsche or Mercedes-AMG. The matching modelcars in format 1:18 are limited to 999 pieces, so in the company of an Aston Martin DB11 and a Corvette.
But first to the most spectacular of the three new releases, the Jaguar F-Type Project 7: The role model of our model has been the result of a treatment by the Department Special Vehicles Operation, which led the basis of the Jaguar F-Type R Cabriolet stylistically closer to the D-Type. Its window frame has been shortened by 114 millimeters and behind the driver's seat flows a wide scoop over the rear, which TrueScale has shown excellent. The vehicle was also redesigned under the tin: a stiffer steering column, harder springs and more negative camber on the front axle optimally optimize the driving characteristics of the sports car - which, of course, can not be seen on the model. The Project 7 also completed a lap on the Nürburgring Nordschleife in 7:35 minutes thanks to its sport mode in traction control.
The car is powered by a compressor assisted V8 with a maximum of 700 Nm of torque. The number 7 in the designation should remind on the seven victories, which Jaguar has achieved at the 24 Hours of Le Mans with its D-Type. 20 units of the Project 7 were reserved for Germany; 155.000,00 Euro were called for the car. Today the vehicles cost from 162,000.00 Euro in Stuttgart to 225,000.00 Euro in the Belgian Zolder; five are currently posted on mobile.de. The price of a model from TrueScale is then cheaper. By the way, with the modelcars of the Aston Martin DB11 2017 and the Chevrolet Corvette ZR-1 2018, TrueScale has released two more impressive models (TS0126, TS0148), which are also made of high-quality resine plastic and perfectly reproduce the appearance of their prototypes in equal numbers.
