The Curve WINTER 2018

The Curve WINTER 2018 OUR LATEST ROUNDUP OF CURATED HIGHLIGHTS FROM THE WORLDS OF DESIGN, STYLE, TECHNOLOGY AND INNOVATION E-TYPE ZERO BACK TO THE FUTURE Following its debut in concept form in 2017, the all-electric Jaguar E-type Zero is now slated to go into full production from March 2019. Jaguar Classic has already gained worldwide acclaim for its E-type Reborn restorations, and now the Classic Works facility in Coventry, UK, will be offering fully future-proofed, restored E-types for tech-savvy classic car enthusiasts as well as those seeking efficiency, reliability and timeless design in one compelling, ground-breaking package. While the E-type Zero looks like its original forebear, under the bonnet it’s all change: the E-type’s venerable straight-six XK engine has been replaced with a bespoke electric motor, developing 220kW, that sends power to the rear wheels and will spirit this unique EV to 62mph in 5.5 seconds. The 40kWh battery delivers a range of around 170 miles (official figure to be confirmed following commencement of production) and can be recharged overnight. The lithium-ion battery pack, being of similar weight and dimensions to the now-departed petrol engine and transmission, means that the E-type Zero’s basic structure has remained the same, allowing it to drive, handle, ride and brake just like a prime example from yesteryear. Indeed, aside from the electric powertrain, efficient LED headlights and optional modified fascia – which features a central touchscreen in the dashboard – the E-type Zero is largely original. And should its owner at any point decide to return to the E-type’s authentic petrol-powered past, the EV conversion will be fully reversible. Truly, a classic car for the past, present and future. To purchase a Jaguar E-type Zero, or to convert your existing E-type to an electric powertrain through Jaguar Classic Works, please contact a member of the specialist team on 00 44 (0)203 601 12 55 or zero@jaguarlandrover.com PHOTOGRAPHY: DAVID SHEPHERD 10 THE JAGUAR
