Jaguar Land Rover’s new Special Operations tuning arm will show off its first-ever model at this week’s Goodwood Festival of Speed, the company has confirmed.

Details of the performance-focused new special have not been revealed, although the outfit has confirmed it will appear on the Jaguar stand - ruling out a debut for the coming Range Rover Sport flagship.

This means we could see a production version of the F-Type Project 7 that debuted at last year’s goodwood show, this time made ready for road use.

Another fitting first debut for the Special Operations team would be the ‘new’ E-Type models that were last week confirmed as part of the offshoot’s portfolio under the ‘Heritage Products’ heading.

Adding credence to the E-Type possibility is news that Jaguar will also use the Goodwood event to showcase a number of other historic racers, including victorious examples of the racing D-type, XJS TWR and XJR-9 tackling the famous 1.16-mile hillclimb.

Other classic heroes on display will include the ‘Group 44’ E-type, the Group-A XJS TWR and the 1988 Le Mans-winning XJR-9 LM - the latter to be reunited with team driver Andy Wallace.

Jaguar's new F-Type Coupe (pictured above) will also be on display at the event, including a run in the legendary hill-climb.

The Goodwood Festival of Speed runs over the June 26-29 weekend.
