IGNITION Exhibit B... BJÖRK ART Following David Bowie’s super popular retrospective at London’s Victoria & Albert Museum, Björk is the latest musician to get a career celebration at New York’s Museum of Modern Art that takes in sound, film, visuals, costumes, and performances from the last 20 years. Intriguingly it also features a narrative of her life mixing fact with – no doubt surreal – fiction, co-written by Björk and Icelandic writer Sjón.

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.
