Brian Johnson Driving the Highway to Hell in a Jaguar F-Type Project 7
I never thought of the Jaguar F-Type Project 7 as the perfect car for driving the “Highway to Hell,” but then again, I’m not AC/DC frontman and world-class car collector Brian Johnson.
Brian’s limited edition, drop-top track toy is being featured over at Maxim, a site that appreciates great lines. Here’s what he has to say about his pretty new 567-hp kitty:
“I love it. It’s a proper supercar and boy oh boy does it have some grunt to it. While it’s blisteringly fast, I feel so safe in it. I love the steering, the handling, and those carbon ceramic brakes are amazing. The discs are as big as the wheels on my racing Mini. Just listen to that noise from the exhaust, who needs a stereo when you have a soundtrack like this?”
This coming from a man who makes his living off of people keeping their stereos on.
Johnson’s been a Jag guy since the early ’70s, when he bought a Mark II sedan. He also owned a ’73 E-Type V12 ‘vert. And now he’s added Jaguar’s most powerful production car ever to his already stellar collection.
Johnson actually drove the prototype Project 7 on the show Cars That Rock. At the end of the episode, he announced his intention to buy one. So it looks like the road to hell really is paved with good intentions.
