The first undertaking of Jaguar Land Rover’s new Special Vehicles Operations personalization department is the F-Type Project 7, the production version of last year’s Project 7 concept car. Yes, Jaguar has confirmed that it will build 250 examples of the stunning speedster, and will present the car for the first time at the 2014 Goodwood Festival of Speed starting Thursday.

The F-Type Project 7’s arrival marks the 60th anniversary of Jaguar’s D-Type race car, which inspired its design. The Project 7 name, meanwhile, is derived from Jaguar’s seven Le Mans wins between 1951-1990, of which many were achieved with the D-Type.

The Jaguar E-Type needs no icing on its cake of sultry vintage speed, but this find has some anyway. Once owned by a race driver, this E-Type was worked over by a race mechanic at ’s shop in Molsheim, France, to extract more power—enough for an extra 7 mph of top end.

Even aside from the Bugatti pedigree, however, this E-Type is lust-worthy. The exterior, while dusty, appears to be almost entirely straight and rust-free, while the interior is nearly pristine—even after sitting in storage for the past 42 years.
