Jaguar will showcase three high-performance limited production vehicles during the 2014 Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance.
The British brand’s recently formed Special Operations division, which exists to fulfill special specification small orders and bespoke vehicle requests, will bring the Range Rover Sport SVR, the U.S. production version of the F-Type Project 7 and one of a total six “missing” copies of the six E-Type Lightweight vehicles. Both the Range Rover and Project 7 cars are being built by the Special Vehicle Operations team, which handles new vehicle engineering within the Special Operations division while the heritage team is assembling the six remaining Lightweights that will be offered to customers.t
The 550-hp Range Rover Sport SVR first debuted during the Goodwood Festival of Speed a month ago along with the F-Type Project 7 that are both going to be available for purchase although Jaguar Land Rover hasn’t publicly announced pricing information for either model year. In the U.K., the Prject 7 will cost £135,000, or roughly $230,000 and the Range Rover Sport SVR is expected to retail for just under £100,000, or over $164,000. Pricing for the revived Lightweight E-Type prototypes hasn’t been announced.
As you might remember, the company announced in May that it planned to produce the vehicles. There were originally supposed to be 18 built in 1963, but that number was cut to 12 and now the company will finally build six new E-Types to fill out the remaining chassis codes that never saw production.
