The most powerful production Jaguar model to date will make its dynamic debut this weekend.

In celebration of the Jaguar D-type’s 60th anniversary, the British automaker will debut its F-Type Project 7 at the Le Mans Classic race from July 4-6. Though the F-Type Project 7 was unveiled at the Goodwood Festival of Speed, the sports car will make its dynamic debut running throughout the weekend along with the very first D-type and F-Type R coupes.

Its top speed is limited to 186 mph and will be limited to just 250 units.
