F-Type GT3, Ready to Go Racing?

The F-Type has put jaguar back in the sports car game but can the F-Type put jaguar back on the podium? F-Type at Le Mans? I know some of you have to be racing fans and giddy at the prospect....





These renderings of the F-Type GT-3 give us a sneak peak into what Jaguar could bring to La Sarthe next year if they ever get around to making the announcement....

I want to hate on how it looks so badly but because it's a rendering i'll cut it some slack. If this does happen I would like to see a more aggressive looking F-Type Race car. I know the F-Type can look really mean with the right mix of exterior aero parts, racing wheels, color scheme, etc.

of course it will all have to be functional.

The Project 7 race car gives a pretty good idea of what an F-Type based race car would/does look like. And by all accounts this thing was ready to win races.

^ Not feeling the wing in the back but the rest of the car has a nice theme and look to it. Love the single toneau hump on the drivers side.

great example, this is a real car too so it gets more love than a rendering. just need to imagine this with a hardtop and in some British racing green and it will not only perform well but look great too

same here but it probably is very functional so as long as it serves some significant purpose then it's worth it

I don't get why the project 7 is a convertible.
convertible with no roll cage?

they should make the hardtop a race car.

F-Type Racer

Jaguar should most definitely go back to Le Mans! With their history this is
a no brainer.

by whose accounts? Project 7 is not winning a single race without a top. No structural rigidity, no cage, no thank you...

I'd rather see Jaguar get into P1 racing than focus on GT3...

No, sadly Jaguar is not back at Le Mans yet. Last time they were in the race was in 1957 which is sad because they had success and it would be fun to see how they can compete today. My dream was to be a Le Mans racer, but I just had no chance of becoming one. I like driving fast, but every time I was racing I did not have much success. F-type is a beautiful car, like any Jaguar in my opinion. You can read more about the history of Le Mans on https://gulfracing.com/ because they have explained it really well and it is enjoyable to read about it.
