IGNITION 7 Design highlights Hi-tech carbon fibre bikes, minimalist watches, pro-quality headphones and luxury flying accessories – plus an F-TYPE with a parachute – dominate this issue’s design edit THE RIDE BME B-9 NH BLACK EDITION One glance at this new carbon fibre design from BME and it’s no surprise to hear it was inspired by the F-117 Nighthawk aircraft. With its distinctive panelling and matt carbon fibre finish, it may not have any markings but this is one bike that won’t go under the radar. Move fast, as it’s limited to 100 units. And get a big lock. £5532 (€7800) bmedesign.eu Parachuting in… To assist Bloodhound’s land speed record attempt, an F-TYPE Coupé has been busy in South Africa with a parachute. Two of them act as crucial back-up to the Bloodhound SSC’s other braking systems, so sponsor Jaguar fitted one to an F-TYPE, ran up to 186mph on a former military runway in Suffolk, UK and then fired the ’chute to check the mechanism’s validity before its bigger test in slowing down the hopefully 763mph-plus record-breaking SSC next year. bloodhoundssc.com 8 j THE BLOCKBUSTER ISSUE

The latest issue introduces our new ‘cub’, the E-PACE compact practical sports car, which is already turning heads on the street. As we commit to electrifying every new Jaguar from 2020, we explore how pushing boundaries on track helps develop our sports cars, from writing motorsport history at Le Mans, to taking on the Nürburgring with the extreme XE SV Project 8 and being at the very cutting edge with the FIA Formula E Championship.
In this issue, we introduce a fresh new addition to the Jaguar family with the launch of the E-PACE. F1 racer Romain Grosjean reveals his passion for Jaguar while the Panasonic Jaguar Racing Team give an insight into their preparations. Plus, we get to grips with the fast-paced sport of drone racing and spend a unique day with the XF Sportbrake.
In this issue we return to top level motorsport but not in a conventional way, and by doing so accelerate the development of electric powertrains. In tandem, we introduce our Jaguar I-PACE Concept vehicle - a revolutionary new model available to reserve now for delivery in 2018.
