Jaguar Classic will offer a custom version of its iconic E-Type roadster which replaces the straight-6 with an electric drivetrain derived from their stellar I-PACE EV. Target range for its 40kWh battery pack is 170 mi, and Jaguar can source and restore a car, or convert yours.
We recently got behind the wheel of the Jaguar’s first ever pure electric vehicle on-road, off-road, and on-track in Portugal. The 394 hp, 240 mile-range crossover offers style, comfort, speed, and dynamic handling like no other EV. Read our in-depth review on 95octane.
Jaguar’s first ever pure EV, the AWD I-PACE has dual motors making 394 hp, a 0-to-60 mph time of 4.5 seconds, 240 mi driving range, a lightweight aluminum structure, 50/50 weight balance, active air suspension, a luxe cabin with room for five, and SUV-like cargo space.
We headed to the French island of Corsica to spend some quality time behind the wheel of Jaguar’s beautiful baby crossover. In R-Dynamic trim, it packs a zippy 296hp turbo 4, and its active driveline offers fantastic control and handling. Plus it seats five, and looks spiffy.
It might be 50 years old, but this E-Type is anything but antique. This Series 1.5 roadster has been beautifully restomodded with a pure-electric drivetrain that cranks out nearly 300 hp, launching it from 0-to-62 mph in 5.5s – about a second quicker than its original V6 gas engine.
Jaguar Special Vehicle Operations took the sporty XE sedan and transformed it into a track beast. This beautiful, aerodynamic, carbon fiber lightened monster rocks a 5.0L supercharged V8, carbon ceramic brakes, and does 0-to-60 in 3.3 seconds, with a 200 mph top speed.
Jaguar’s performance luxury wagon comes to the US. Only now, it’s got an aluminum body, 50/50 weight balance, and a supercharged 380 hp V6 that launches it to 60 mph in 5.3s. It holds up to 69.7 cu. ft. of cargo, and has an air suspension for stability even with a load.
Jaguar’s sport sedan gets a major dose of power, with a 5.0L supercharged V8 making 592 hp, with increased airflow to feed that hungry engine, lots of aero upgrades, and more goodies that we don’t know about yet. Just 300 will be made, and full specs drop on 6/28/17.
We flew to Arjeplog, Sweden to drive some of Jaguar and Land Rover’s awesome cars on challenging ice circuits, and spent the better part of a week going sideways and doing donuts. Attend for yourself, and you might even catch a glimpse of the Northern Lights.
Jaguar comes out swinging with its first EV. This sport crossover looks fantastic, has a spacious cabin that seats five, a 220 mi driving range, and can go 0-to-60 in about 4 sec thanks to two motors that produce 400hp and 516 lb-ft. of torque. Goes into production in 2018.
LEGO Ideas contributor Ozzyeatingbats presents a concept for a model of Jaguar’s greatest design achievement, the car Enzo Ferrari once called “the most beautiful car ever made.” It’s appx. 1:10 scale, made from 1664 bricks, and has a big inline 6-cylinder engine.
We recently had the opportunity to test out the 2017 Jaguar F-PACE R-Sport SUV over on 95octane, and while we had it on hand, we couldn’t resist the urge to park it alongside its muse. While the F-TYPE would win in a race, the F-PACE is a truly sweet daily driver.
Jaguar is teaming up with British skiing champion Graham Bell to see just how fast a man can glide across the snow. In 2017, Bell will don a special ski suit and jet pack to push him up to 160mph. Until that happens, watch Bell hit 100mph as he’s towed behind a Jaguar XE.
Eagle’s third bespoke Jaguar E-Type is a drop top version of the Low Drag GT, with a raked windscreen and a folding fabric roof. Like its siblings, it has an aluminum body, a 5-speed gearbox and Eagle’s 345hp straight-six engine. It’s limited to six units, each costing $1M.
More than 50 years after its initial creation, Jaguar started building a handful of new E-Type sports cars with aluminum bodies. Watch the British automaker once again handcraft this beautiful car in this 5-minute video from inside Jaguar’s Coventry factory.
