It looks like the 2014 Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance Kick-Off Party on August 14th will be a busy one for Jaguar Land Rover, as the pair of automakers plan to debut three new models. The first one — the F-Type Project 7 — already made its global debut, but this will be its first time on American soil, but the other two are new to our eyes.
First up is the fastest and most powerful production Land Rover ever, the Range Rover SVR. This 550-horsepower performance SUV has spent plenty of time lapping the Nϋrburgring slathered in camouflage, so we already have a good idea of what it looks like. At Pebble Beach we will get to see all the bits that the camo was hiding and learn the majority of its performance numbers, given Land Rover doesn’t hold them back for a future reveal.
The second global debut on the docket is the prototype for the for the six new Jaguar Lightweight E-Types. This is by far the most unique of the debuts by Jaguar Land Rover, as the production models that will follow it represent the six unreleased Lightweight E-Types from the 1960s — 18 chassis numbers were allocated, but only Jag only used 12. That’s right, these aluminum-bodied racers’ chassis numbers have been sitting dormant since the car’s debut decades ago, and Jaguar is putting them to use on replicas built to the Lightweight E-Type’s original specifications. Buyers can also make special requests for the interior and exterior of their E-Types, so they are assured a unique models.
Looks like Pebble Beach is shaping up to be a grand spectacle, as usual.
