Watch it JAGUAR AND BREMONT have joined forces on six chronometers to complement the six new lightweight E-Types being built to finalise the original ’63 production run. Later this year more commercially available versions will arrive so more of you can get a chance to don one of these great-looking time-pieces. bremont.com Eat it Why fine art and food mix at Hix… For those who appreciate fine art and fine food, the latest London restaurant from celebrated chef Mark Hix – Hixter Bankside – could be just the ticket. Only a few minutes’ walk south of the river from the globally revered Tate Modern art gallery and Borough Market food paradise, Hixter Bankside is Hix’s biggest restaurant yet. The converted metal box factory houses specially commissioned art from leading British artists including Tracey Emin and Gavin Turk and focuses on casual dining with a simple menu based around carefully sourced, high-quality roast chicken and beef steak. The ex-Ivy, Dorset-raised cook already has a restaurant in Lyme Regis, just around the corner from his hometown of Charmouth and half a dozen others in London including the Hix Oyster & Chop House and Hix at Selfridges. Hixter Bankside’s basement plays host to his latest award-winning cocktail emporium – Mark’s Bar – while private dining rooms are available for eight to 50 guests. With kids under 10 allowed to eat for free every day from 4 to 6pm the Hixter could be the perfect family-friendly artistic and culinary experience combined. hixterbankside.co.uk PHOTOGRAPHY: PR (12); ANDREW FRANCIS WALLACE/TORONTO STAR/GETTY IMAGES Fast food often used to mean trash food. But now young chefs show that delicious dishes can be served quickly Food trucks A second trend we love: excellent quality dishes from nice guys in trucks (or mobile restaurants). Here are three: caplanskys.com (Toronto, right), goose-ffm.de (Frankfurt), thefrankenstand.com (LA) And the matching film... Chef (2014). Jon Favreau is a stressed-out cook who loses his restaurant but re-finds his love of food through opening an acclaimed food truck instead. Out now on DVD Non-booking... is a trend we love: instead of calling, booking and hurrying to be in time, just be served when you arrive. If the restaurant is full, the waiters will call or text you when a table is free (and some have apps where you can see your place in the queue remotely). Or simply wait, because guests just eat and leave. Fast food fast. In London: honestburgers.co.uk (left) 10greekstreet.com barrafina.co.uk THE PERFORMANCE ISSUE j 9

In the latest issue of The Jaguar magazine, we tour beautiful Portugal in the game-changing New All-Electric Jaguar I-PACE, and learn what it took to build this truly desirable electric vehicle by interviewing the key players involved in its creation. The themes of cutting-edge innovation continue as we get a first look at a classic E-type with a difference, and explore the latest trends in creative artificial intelligence and smart home technology. Get an insight into the world of high performance through our interviews of Formula E racing driver Nelson Piquet Jr. and tennis star Johanna Konta, and join us for visceral thrills as we hit the Jaguar Ice Academy’s Arctic tracks along with some unusual passengers.

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.
