All three vehicles are from the Jaguar Land Rover newly created Special Operations division which, under the leadership of Managing Director, John Edwards, will focus on designing and engineering high specification vehicles, bespoke commissions, heritage products and branded goods.

The Jaguar F-TYPE Project 7 and Range Rover Sport SVR are both from Special Vehicle Operations – the engineering and vehicle division of Special Operations – while the new Lightweight E-Type is the first recreation from the Special Operation Jaguar Heritage team.

The Range Rover Sport SVR is the first Land Rover vehicle to wear the new high-performance SVR badge, and is the brands most dynamically focused vehicle Land Rover has ever produced. The Range Rover Sport SVR features a 550hp 5.0-liter supercharged V8 engine capable of accelerating from 0-60 mph in 4.5 seconds with a top speed of 162 mph on track.

The first recreation from the Special Operation Jaguar Heritage team, the prototype of the Lightweight E-Type, was hand-built by skilled Jaguar craftsmen in a new facility at Browns Lane in England. Six customer Lightweight E-Type vehicles will be built and each will be assigned one of the remaining chassis numbers originally allocated in 1963 to the intended 18-car 'Special GT E-Type' project, of which just 12 were built.

The U.S. production version of the F-TYPE Project 7 is an all-aluminum, fully road-legal two-seater roadster with bespoke carbon-fiber aerodynamic aids and is the pinnacle of the F-TYPE range. Named to reflect seven Jaguar overall wins at the 24 Hours of Le Mans, F-TYPE Project 7 is inspired by the Jaguar D-Type which celebrates its 60th anniversary this year. It will be available in two standard color schemes – Glacier White, a metallic white which is the feature color for the model and Ultra Blue, a metallic take on French Racing Blue and the signature color of the Jaguar Land Rover SVO team. British Racing Green, Ultimate Black and Caldera Red will also be available as optional upgrades.
