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.

For an F-PACE driver

For an F-PACE driver heaven is an empty road in Sweden – Mia (below) and Anders Cronwall agree, having left the hustle and bustle of city life behind them. Mia runs a wonderful seafront café and Anders has found the good life as a lobster fisherman “LOBSTER FISHING IS MORE OF AN EXPENSIVE HOBBY” ANDERS CRONWALL 62 THE JAGUAR

TRAVEL WHERE TO EAT VATTEN RESTAURANG & KAFÉ A culinary joy. Choose between fish of the day, soup or the ‘green’ alternative, paired with a selection of fine wines and local craft beer. restaurangvatten.com MIA’S SJÖBOD Mouth-watering cakes and bakeries, delicious seafood soup and hearty sandwiches in an old boathouse in Hälleviksstrand. Open daily in the summer, and weekends only in September, October and May. miassjobod.se We love cities. More than half of all of us now live in a city and by 2050 two-thirds will. But we love to leave them also. Five days in an always-on, increasingly crowded metropolis feels like plenty. If you find yourself staring out of your office window to the hills in the far distance late on a Friday, you’re not alone. Nor is the need to get away new. Our greatest cities are often ringed with spectacular or tranquil landscapes to which stressed city-dwellers have been escaping since before the notion of stress was invented. Manhattanites and the Milanese have elevated the weekend to an art form in the Hamptons and the Italian Lakes (see pages 66-67). Scandinavian cities are more liveable than most, but to illustrate the point I’m still slipping Gothenburg’s (not particularly onerous) shackles for the rugged cliffs, rickety fishing villages and raw seascapes of the Bohuslän Coast, a chain of islands just an hour from town. My partner for this particular getaway is a Jaguar F-PACE, 2.0 litre diesel powered, All-Wheel Drive and – appropriately it seems – bright red because down on the Bohuslän it’s lobster season, the highlight of Sweden’s culinary calendar. I say ‘partner’ because how you get to your getaway destination is just as important as the destination itself. Time is short and let’s face it, you’re unlikely to be making this personal well-being mercy mission alone. Roads are crowded and you don't want to arrive even more stressed. You need a car you actively want to be in and which, once you have finally left the traffic behind, you might actively want to drive. The F-PACE thankfully doesn’t just pay lip-service to the notion of a Jaguar SUV. THE JAGUAR 63
